lyrics

Where are my roads in the sky?
And why haven’t I ever heard of that guy
Who you said would be up to no good?
Troubling times for the Danube and the Rhine
Did you see a blaze beyond your days?
Why didn’t you say it would happen that way?
The world didn’t end so let’s not pretend
That maybe it did back in 1998
Nobody’s that smart at the dark arts
Close but no cigar
Well I know what you are
Never said what you mean
Never made it clean
What you thought you’d seen
What you’d have us believe
Just a French counterfeit that was full of shit
Now we retrofit
Every single bit
To what already was
And we do it because
Everybody loves
All that stupid stuff
I read your quatrains and I got some complaints
You fabricate everything that you say
I think if your verse had been slightly less terse
Someone would’ve stopped that guy from shooting JFK
Just a horse’s ass in a stupid hat
Just a magic act
And hardly even that
You had two or three gems but the rest of them
Are post festum
And are vague even then
Any weatherman who goes to weather school
Can do what you do
Every night on the news
And if you really are what you say you are
I bet you foresaw
All the flaws in this song
