Jesus & Socrates

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

Jesus never laughed in the old stories
Socrates he never ever cried
Somewhere in the middle we're all a-waitin'
For someone to remind us that we're kind

We'll chase debates with a not so loving fancy
We dodge and roll our feelings all the time
In the end we're all a just a waitin'
out front of the bar rooms in our minds

Aw, to hell with the truth, as history would prove
it's as irrelevant as all the lawyers say
It's the comfort of a pipe dream
A beer stained flickering light beam
That arrests us all and gets us through the day

A prayer is a wine soaked hangover
A joke's just a bottle when your dry
A song is a meal when your hungry
And a dream is what we've schemed throughout our lives

Someone said the answer's in the wind boys
I guess he thought that might help at the time
But my white dove's sailed the sea, and now she's sleeping
Petty poetry is something quite unkind

Aw, to hell with the truth, as history would prove
it's as irrelevant as all the lawyers say
It's the comfort of a pipe dream
A beer stained flickering light beam
That arrests us all and gets us through the day

Break the wine out, quit your jobs I feel like dancing
Jettison your loneliness aside
It's the everyday that kills a lovely spirit
Isolated, made a slave until it's died

Cause Jesus never laughed in the old stories
And Socrates he never ever cried
Somewhere in the middle we're all a-waitin'
for someone to remind us that we're kind

Aw, to hell with the truth, as history would prove
it's as irrelevant as all the lawyers say
It's the comfort of a pipe dream
A beer stained flickering light beam
That arrests us all and gets us through the day
