Some said I don't look like a strong man
But what do they know?
When I show up I make 'em eat crow

But I won't lie cuz it's not easy
For those of us in the dark
Doing our best to make a tiny spark

The creature comforts that I live by
While kids in trial by fire
Are living hung upon a wire
As states conspire
To turn them into dust

Hard times in the middle
My 401k ain't good
But I guess it's not bad

Baby, don't get too cross
It could be so much worse
We'll pray about and see what works

And I'll admit that I'm a little scared
Of the shapes I see
Waiting out in the darkness
To consume me

Topography at 30,000 feet
Prepared to deceive the eye
Cajole the chump to believe a lie

That on the ground things are easy
Even as a paper sheet
Until your eyes El Capitan meet

So please forgive me if I don't have
The consolation you seek
We're equal figures upon the street
Where we can meet
To draw out our retreat

Hard times in the middle
My 401k ain't good
But I guess it's not bad

Baby, don't get too cross
It could be so much worse
We'll pray about and see what works

And I'll admit that I'm a little scared
Of the shapes I see
Waiting out in the darkness
To consume me

Baby, don't get too cross (Don't get too mad)
It could be so much worse (It could be really really bad)
We'll pray about and see what works (It works it works it works it works)

And I'll admit that I'm a little scared (Just a little)
Of the shapes I see (What even are those? oh man)
Waiting out in the darkness
To consume me
