So I spent half the day scaring crows with my neighbor,
And got pretty scared of myself
And that night I drank and told jokes with my lawyer,
Who'll still probably take all my cash
Yeah, he knows that it won't be long
Before I am as good as gone
So it's best to just go ahead and move on

So I waited around in the pews until sunset,
And watched all the good men go home
And I wondered if maybe they'll head to the brothel,
Or drink and then go for a drive
What does a saint do with his time,
when outside of God's lazy eye?
Well I wish those thoughts would stay clear of my mind

I don't believe that there is any system
Set up to apportion bad luck
It chooses a man from a lineup at random,
And feeds on his soul day and night
Well it takes some nerve to assume
That unlucky soul could be you
So I'll just keep those thoughts to myself
