God at the Races

Verse:

It was hard to believe when he said

the angels weren't calling the dead

and I had fallen off the wrong side of a golden fence.

It was hard to believe when he claimed

I wouldn't be leaving today

I'd have to wait it out with the devils and the holy meds.

Chorus:

It was hard to believe they're not coming for me

they're not coming for me.

hard to believe they're not coming for me.

they're not coming for me.

I pleaded with the man

but all he said was "It's all in your head."

Verse:

I walked myself to the window

watched as that rain beat silent songs upon the trees

I watched this window laugh at me

and i wrapped me up in a blanket

remembered the day when you would say that

"you'd never let me go"

i used to hear you in the radio

2nd Chorus:

and I tried to believe

you're not coming for me.

you're not coming for me.

I tried to believe

you're not coming for me

you're not coming for me.

so hard to believe

nobody's coming for me

they're not coming for me

And I pleaded with the man

but all he said was

"It's all, yes, It's all in your head!"

Outro Chorus:

Hey Kid!

What can you do now?

Now that your Gods' at the Races

coming up short

and he's one hard loss from losing religion

Hey, Hey! Kid!

what can you do now?

now that your Gods' at the Races

coming up short

one hard loss from losin' religion

said, Hey, Hey, Kid!

what can you do 'bout that?!

bet you're gonna lose it all!

What can you do?!
