I pray for peace
They require me to kick into high gear
We may as well have our Ph'ds
Might we compose was never taken into account

I pray they let out or talk it out
She would give me a wink across the room
I would have made a really good lawyer
I had a really good strategy for putting things back on the wall of the hoser

Thank God it was the God dammed wall
I would have to hide all my valuables
Who would calm my mother down?
Who would calm *me* down once I talked her through it?

My mother and I were the official peace makers
It was a full time job
I would send my mother directly to bed do not collect 200
We'd talk about it till 5 am when I'd come visiting her 5 years later

We would pray for peace
It was most comfortable and familiar

    General CommentNobody wrote anything here? I have a recording of this song that's really bad, but still the song is great. Not exactly like the songs she used to write, but...

    General Commentthis song is about arguments in the household, and the singer dealing with it. how she and the mother tried to keep peaces throughout the years. i guess the lyrics are pretty self explanatory.

    by the way, the lyric should be "I had a really good strategy for putting things back on the wall WHERE THE HOLES WERE"
