Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on my goal

I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back at ya, ya know I'm gonna catch ya
Cos you know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make
I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back wailin, big right sailin
Cos ya know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make

Patience, give me some of that patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on my goal
Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on the ball

Well I've exchanged the spear and the sword
For words and melody
Oh what a felony
How the record company pushes this McDonalds music
An aural lobotomy
For those who choose it
Corporations pumpin all this money into pop
To keep the real singers far away from the top
So folks are never told what these corporations do
Fuckin up the planet, exploiting me and you

Well I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back at ya, ya know I'm gonna catch ya
Cos you know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make
I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back wailin, big right sailin
Cos ya know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make

Patience, give me some of that patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on my goal
Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on the ball

From my room in Donaghmede
I'm 'bout to kick all your asses
Stick your pink champagne and fuck your backstage passes
A warrior comin down the mountain at ya
A woodkern springin from the trees to catch ya,
I'm lickin my wounds in the wilderness
Prayin for the warmth of the sun's kiss
My time will come
Your race is run
The throne's rightly mine
You greedy swine.

Well I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back at ya, ya know I'm gonna catch ya
Cos you know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make
I take a few shlugs on the kisser
I'm comin back wailin, big right sailin
Cos ya know I got no brakes
It doesn't matter how long that it takes
My luck I'm gonna make.

Patience, give me some of that patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on my goal
Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on the ball
Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on my goal , yeah
Patience, give me some of that sweet patience, Lord,
I will keep my eye on the ball
