the messiah's come and gone
he's left half a dozen flags to stake his claim
maybe i should jump start, singing the national anthem

lie belly up in the sun
blistering out like a bottle of beer
i need a slow dive into the country to calm my nerves

i'm only dancing on the roof tops
thinking about what i've got to do
maybe i'll get drunk and change the world some other day

this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
and there was nothing in between

the musicians have left the building
Oh god i'll never meet them now
i wanted them to sign my chest and wish me a happy christmas

oh well there's next time
tonight i'm gonna cut off my hand
let the blood it curls down put a smile on the face of my friend

i'm only dancing on the roof tops
thinking about what i've got to do
maybe i'll get drunk and change the world some other day

this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
and there was nothing in between
and there was nothing in between
