I get tired
of feeling like I've done something wrong
I'm just sitting here
tryin to drink a beer
tryin to be a man
tryin to say
fuck y'all
those who don't understand
my shit
the hope in it
the scoop in it

oh they keep it comin
they keep it comin child
they keep it comin
long and warm
oh they keep it comin
oh they got me runnin child
they got me runnin
oh they keep it coming

sweet jesus
tell them to take pity on me
I'm so cold and lonely
I'm so old and lonely
I'm what I thought I couldn't be

you get tired
of tellin me I'm paranoid
that's bullshit
you know
what I'm
talkin about
I try and tell you somethin
you fuckin leave
it's always
the same way
no one even listens
to a single word I say
oh

oh they see me comin
oh they see me comin
oh they keep on runnin child
they keep on runnin
they see me comin

sweet jesus
send me some laughter in the evening
let it rise within me
and if you forgive me
surely then I will be recieved

sweet jesus
send me some ----
let me rise to greet them
I'm so pleased to meet you
come on and talk to me

I had sixteen bawls with the motherfuckers
I said I ripped two chords with the motherfuckerd
I got high on mars with the motherfuckers
I didn't get too far with the motherfuckers

big trouble in china motherfuckers
I got beer and wine and motherfuckers
I can't tell no lies to motherfuckers
thats why I can't find no motherfuckers

sweet jesus
tell them to take pity on me
I'm so cold and lonely
I'm so old and lonely
I'm what I thought I couldnt be

sweet jesus
send me some laughter in the evening
let it rise within me
I can feel you in me
shining at me
show them all my love

    General CommentWHAT AN AMAZING SONG!!

    To me this song is a critique on modern Irish sociey, and also a reflection that in many ways Mick Pyro is a lost sould in this world - he is an intellectual in a world of philistines.

    Pyro's lyrics are up there with the greats - dylan, young, van morrison you name them he's up there with them. But he will be forever ridiculed, because people can't see past his 50 cent charity suit, and giant white glasses. It's nothing short of a tragedy! And it truly reflects how superficial this society really is.

    With regards the song it reflects how drugs and alcohol have become a dominent feature of Irish society, but Pyro dosn't want these things to consume his life. He wants to be sound of mind so he can continue to nurture his lyrical genius "oh they me coming....I got high on mars with the motherfuckers".

    This revulsion of the people who surround him is reflected when he says "I try and tell you somethin you fuckin leave it's always the same way no one even listens to a single word I say oh". No one who knows Pyro can understand his depth of meaning so they shun him to the periphery. TRAGIC.

    The verse at the end is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard. Pyro at his most beautiful. How he wishes to be surrounded by people who think like him, who are as intelligent as him. But he knows that the only one that can match his intelligence and his depth of understanding of the world is Jesus. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
