Drifting through the holy smoke
My sword don't swing
Thrown into the filthy corners
But that's okay

Being good ain't enough lately
I ain't got the strength to save me
Can't figure what got me here
I don't want to preach alone
It's easy to disappear
But mother I'm good as gold
Am I not your boy
Your child
The kid that I once was
Is dead

Aahh

Men are joined
Are joined
Adjourned

Can't figure what got me here
I don't want to preach alone
It's easy to disappear
But mother I'm good as gold
Am I not your boy
Your child
The kid that I once was
Is dead

Who and where and why and when
And then (mmm)
Will I get it again
Still operating
Will I get it again
Again still operating
Being good ain't enough lately
I ain't got the strength to save me
