Song Description

fake spirituality

Lyrics

VERSE:
I got money in my pocket getting ready to burn
I got a six-pack of Lucky with a lesson to learn.
I?ve been waiting all my life for an investment to return
And now I?m done.

Well they?re spilling me this wisdom about the universe and God
How the glory?s gonna find you if you work real hard
While somebody?s getting rich behind their spiritual facade
So now I?m done.

B: People talk about religion. Make you think that is something you could buy.
Well I?ve been paying all my dues I don?t see nothing coming through
And I?m getting a little tired of waiting for my piece of the pie.

VERSE: My therapist is telling me I?m screwed up in the head.
And the girl who does my colors says I don?t look good in red.
Some day a tele-psychic?s gonna let me know I?m dead.
So then I?m done.

Everybody?s out to teach a lesson to the world.
But the lessons that they?re teaching ain?t from anything they?ve learned.
Instead they read a book and saw the money they could earn
So now I?m done.

B: People talk about religion. Make you think that is something you could buy.
Well I?ve been paying all my dues I don?t see nothing coming through
And I?m getting a little tired of waiting for my piece of the pie.

CHORUS: Stop right now. Look at your life from the inside out.
Don?t let someone else tell you what is true.
Stop right now. Learn to believe in yourself somehow.
Take a chance on what you really wanna do.

So I got myself a bright red pair of sneakers.
Been walking solo down the road I call my life.
I can?t promise you that you?ll find your salvation.
But I sure as hell ain?t chargin? for advice.
