lyrics

The skies are always whirling
And the globe's been getting hot
And there's something in the air that says
we ain't exactly what we thought
I been watching all them people
At the bottom of a whiskey cup
And they smile back and they plainly ask
Ya think heaven's really up?

I got a few problems,
One's a bottle that's too full
The other's when it's empty,
And there ain't nothing left to pull

Tommy Doyle was a good boy
He'd drink just like he talked
He'd sing and joke and gamble
The way most of you all walk
I got a phone call last weekend
Conor, Tommy boy's been dead
A Firebird took him back to God
I think that's what she said

I got a few problems,
One's a bottle that's too full
The other's when it's empty,
And there ain't nothing left to pull

Well they'll sell you on ashes to ashes
And they'll sing about dust to dust
And they'll brag about the gods they saw
On the dollars that they trust
And I ain't got the answers,
I ain't even got the time
I'm heading out, I'll see ya round
And we both know that's a lie

I got a few problems,
One's a bottle that's too full
The other's when it's empty,
And there ain't nothing left to pull

I've seen the angels grabbing pavement
I've seen devils wearing suits
A thousand surplus love affairs
And found barely any truth
Hens will cluck about the cars they want
their jobs, and something else
I can hear her squawking now about
Her housing and her health

I got a few problems,
One's a bottle that's too full
The other's when it's empty,
and there ain't nothing left to pull

I got a few problems,
One's a bottle that's too full
The other's when it's empty,
And there ain't nothing left to pull

Well the skies are always swirling
And this globe's been getting hot
And there's something in the air that says
We ain't exactly what we thought
