Dress For The Weather

from by Snake Oil Charlatans



Can’t you hear the sounds above?
The gods are shaking the bones
A bad moon is covered in dishonest storms
You learn as you grow old
Some people delight in the slaughter of your purity of heart
It makes no sense to me
And why on earth do they prize themselves so highly?

Look to the sky and see the way the world is
Makes you want to cry

So dress for the weather
Keep your head and your body together
Know these things don’t last forever, whatever the greatest hopes of fools
Who see the devil clouds cover the land
They feel the pressure, but don’t understand
Just be sure you dress for the weather
‘Cause nothing lasts forever

There was such a flood in here
It rained for forty days
All the lies and the burdens you thought I should bear
The song remains the same
Some people can’t tell me their reasons without tripping over their feet
It makes no sense to me
And why on earth do they repeat themselves so loudly?

Look to the sky and see what is comin’ down
Makes you want to cry
