Take my mother, my sister, my brother
& my first born son
Ne'er do wells, everyone
There's a fracture in the fabric of the family's old scotch pine
But it will heal if given time

I for one am a believer in the nod & shake
We'll get on, it's never too late
It's a part of your cult that I might keep for myself
Turn the other cheek (that's nice)
But not that bit about your Hell

Because my blood's too rich for subway cars
& I'm too poor for a cab
I'm too old for the girl I love but she doesn't know it yet
When I die I will leave no shadows of regret
I'm too tired to make amends that cannot go unsaid.

    General CommentI love the second verse. About taking the good parts of religion, because you aren't religious yourself, and ignoring the rest.

    I think this song is just about time passing, growing older, living your life how you see fit. I'm not sure.
