I know a girl
who lives in this world
She saw at me at a bar
At Empassant
I move like a pawn
whose chasin' a swan
Whose singin' a song
A real bad song

I feel it each day
but I do it my way
And I turn on the radio
and I hear the voice of Tammy Faye
she says "Reach out, reach out,
friend, for my sake"

When my life
don't seem so sweet
Imagine an aborted baby fetus
on a toilet seat
And realizing that
your time is slow
Imagine a soldier in Iraq
gettin' his head blown off

If in life it seems
you can only fail
Imagine a poor boy
whose getting raped in his prison cell
And you can have your cake
and you can eat it too
Pushin' right back to Marie Antoinette
that's Jericho

Thank God
either way
The Lord and Savior
and live it each day
When life starts
to seem so sad
Just remember
it ain't so bad

So pray to the Lord
that they may survive
Cause were only here
for a little while.

    General CommentLast song off of Let It Bloom, (best BL album).
    Who knew garage rock could sound so beautiful?
    When that baby piano comes in, it kills me.
