I never tried as hard as I could
I've seen more than I've understood
Take my father who came back from the dead
"I needed just one more drink," he said
He sat there reading books
While my mother slowly lost her looks
And even though we were poor
The sun still shined on our door

O Lord! Please come down from the mountain
Some of us are broke and having problems
And everybody knows, that I know what's going on
And if cars could run on teardrops, I'd be long, long gone

I got a plan to get me out of debt
I'm gonna play this to perfect a bet
I'm gonna change the pattern of the stars
I'd like to horse-whip all these VCRs
Screw the soft rock and the salad bars
Let's turn our backs on all the moviestars
Let's raise our voices up and sing:
"We are not one with everything."

O Lord! Please come down from the mountain
Some of us are broke and having problems
And everybody knows, that I know what's going on
And if cars could run on teardrops, I'd be long, long gone

Long, long gone
Long, long gone
