Lyrics
So I spent half the day scaring crows with my neighbour
and got pretty scared of myself
And that night I drank and told jokes with my lawyer
who'll still probably take all my cash
Yeah, he knows that it won't be long
before I am as good as gone
So it's best to just go ahead and move on
So I waited around in the pews until sunset
and watched all the good men go home
And I wondered if maybe they'll head to the brothel
or drink and then go for a drive
What does a saint do with his time
when outside of God's lazy eye?
Well I wish those thoughts would stay clear of my mind
I don't believe that there is any system
set up to apportion bad luck
It chooses a man from a lineup at random
and feeds on his soul day and night
Well it takes some nerve to a**ume
that unlucky soul could be you
So I'll just keep those thoughts to myself
To myself
To myself
Self
