I know what you want and I know what you need
This can’t be happening to us
But I’ll help you try to fill everyone’s empty pail
If evidence is second best to none
Hope is a lot like a rope
You’re tangled before you let go
I ripped up the canvas that painted our sadness
I know you’re my friend not my foe…hope
We’ll walk around for miles exposing those pedophiles
Throw them back in church where they belong
Thinking someday they’ll change or maybe rearrange their ways
But honey don’t you know their hearts are vile
Hope is a lot like a rope
You’re tangled before you get choked
I ripped up the canvas that painted our sadness
I know you’re my friend not my foe…nope
We don’t talk, not enough anymore
And the carnival was a blast, but it can’t change enough
Go figure out your life, a difficult lie to leap
Go figure out you’re right or find out what needs to be pleased
And hope is a lot like a rope
You’re tangled before you get smoked
I ripped up the canvas that painted our sadness
I love you more than you should know…HOPE
