Frail Grasp on the Big Picture

歌詞

Well ain't it a shame

 

That our short little memories

 

Never seem to learn

 

The message of history

 

We keep makin' the same mistakes

Over and over and over and over again

And then we wonder why

 

We're in the shape we're in

 

Good ol' boys down at the bar

 

Peanuts and politics

 

They think they know it all

They don't know much of nothing

 

Even if one of them was to read the newspaper

Cover-to-cover

 

That ain't what's going on

 

Journalism's dead and gone

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Light fading and the fog is getting thicker

It's a frail grasp on the big picture

 

Dark ages

 

You my love-drunk friend

 

All that red wine and candlelight

 

Soulful conversations

 

That go on until the dawn

 

How many times can you tell your story

How many hangovers can you endure

 

Just to get some snuggling done

 

You're living in a hollow dream

You don't have the slightest notion

 

What long-term love is all about

 

All your romantic liasons

Don't deal with eternal questions like

Who left the cap off the freaking toothpaste

 

Whose turn to take the garbage out

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

You keep on rubbin' that you're gonna get a blister

It's a frail grasp on the big picture

 

I've seen it all before

 

And we pray to our Lord

 

Who we know is American

He reigns from on high

He speaks to us through middlemen

 

And he shepherds his flock

We sing out and we praise His name

He supports us in war

He presides over football games

 

And the right will prevail

 

All our troubles shall be resolved

 

We have faith in the Lord

 

Unless there's money or sex involved

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Nobody's calling them for roughing up the pitcher ( )

It's a frail grasp on the big picture

 

Heaven help us

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

All waiting for that miracle elixir

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

I don't wonder anymore

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Somebody says "You brought her here so go ahead and kiss her

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Light fading and the fog is getting thicker

It's a frail grasp on the big picture

 

Frail grasp on the big picture

 

Frail grasp on the big picture
