​O Salvation

This song is by The Celibate Rifles.

We're getting older but no more wise
I'm looking but I don't believe my eyes
Kids with machine guns selling crack
I've never seen a hearse with a luggage rack
One thing baby I know is true
You make it but you can't take it with you

Yes it's true
You can't take it with you

O Salvation
You took your sweet time coming in
O Salvation
At the time when we begin
O Salvation
Drink the water it tastes so sweet

Pick my pocket, steal my car
Burgle my house, take my guitar
Ring the police on the emergency line
Drive to the station get a parking fine
Ring my lawyer, "hey what should I do?"
"Do it to them before they do it to you"
Yes it's true
That's what he said to do

O Salvation
What's a person supposed to do?
O Salvation
I've been looking without a clue
O Salvation
Drink the water it tastes so sweet

Raise my taxes, double my rent
I can't get no relief from the government
Factories polluting things everywhere
Worst of all honey is they don't care
Sometimes you wonder where it's going to end
Better stop look listen and begin again

Yes it's true
That's what we got to do

O Salvation
You took your sweet time getting here
O Salvation
Hoping for a better year
O Salvation
Pure water it tastes so sweet
