Jive II

saw their days
bitten away by grinding teeth
we laughed, like hell we laughed
then it fell
dude rang his bell
he said "the games up
these rules are mine
and boy if you are wise
you’ll come to play along
boy you’ll come and get yourself in line”
he said
“boy you’ll come and get yourself in line…”

was I wrong to think it epic?
was I naive to think it grand?
was I wrong to think it magic?
are we all just sitting in his hand?
no, no, no, no

you almost had me fooled
you almost had me fooled

it’s those simple ones
that follow us to our graves
if I could peel the husk
I wouldn’t lead such long, long days

just a little bit goes a long, long way

it’s those simple ones
that follow us to our graves
if I could peel the husk
I wouldn’t lead such long, long days

it’s that simple love
that follows us to our graves
if I could peel the husk
I wouldn’t lead such long, long days

just a little bit goes a long, long way…
