Sugar Won't Work

This song is by Elvis Costello and The Roots and appears on the album Wise Up Ghost (2013).

Lightning up and shake the ground
Is that a horn that's blowing?
Or a bell that's tolling?
Walls are falling, ships pulled out from their mooring
Is that a river or just a road the storm has stolen?

And this will predict the times these signs will bring
Me and my stupid heart
We were never apart
But now sugar won't work

Lightning Up and fly the coop
Far from this tin pan alley oop
Did you think I was your dupe?
I hear such lies and howlers
Words to pull out your molars

And this will predict the times these signs will bring
Me and my stupid heart
We were never apart
But now sugar won't work
Sugar won't work

Lightning up, sugar the pill
A wall of ocean ten miles high
Metal darts torn from the sky
Like wanton boys make noise, pull wings from flies

And this will predict the times these signs will bring
Me and my stupid heart
We were never apart
But now sugar won't work

Sugar won't work
Sugar won't work
Sugar won't work
Sugar won't work
Sugar won't work
