Look straight at the coming disaster
Realise what you've lost
You keep handing out horseshoes
Horseshoes have gotta be tossed

My sister Sue and me
Were doing stunts with electric trains
She said she'd do my dishes
So I handed her the reins

And she engineered a collision steered
By a hand-eye protégé
Before my train set started burning
I heard my sister say

Look straight at the coming disaster
Realise what you've lost
You keep handing out horseshoes
Horseshoes have gotta be tossed

I dreamed I went to heaven
'cause I told my lover lies
When I woke up I went to her
And looked her in the eye

I said, "Help me cry, 'cause I can't deny
This union's feeling wrong"
Then a flashback to the dream
And angels singing songs:

Look straight at the coming disaster
Realise what you've lost
You keep handing out horseshoes
Horseshoes have gotta be tossed

Don't push the river
If you love it, set it free
I said, "Go on and see him,
You can still come home to me."

And I was satisfied God was on our side
'cause we're freer than the birds
She sent me a letter; I didn't read it
I already knew the words

Look straight at the coming disaster
Realise what you've lost
You keep handing out horseshoes
Horseshoes have gotta be tossed
