From the album Pies in the Sky

Lyrics

You say you think that you can’t make it
but you know I think you can
You carried incense, you crossed the desert
but you couldn’t find your man
You walked the trail in darkness with a compass
with a shaky hand
Seems like you’re looking pretty far
to try and find a pure land

The curtain closes and you bow with your
gorilla suit mask off
But at the party backstage it’s just you and the
butcher with a cough
You went to naval school, but you’re stranding on an
island without your cap
Seems like you’re looking awful far
to try and find out where you’re at

If you’re hungry
You could starve to death out here
In this wasteland
They’ll keep you in with guilt and fear
But life is bigger
and you should live before you die
But you’ll surely starve to death
If you’re waiting on those pies in the sky

Your graduation gown’s a birthday suit with a
purple argyle sock
Your sentence 40 years in windowless rooms
staring at the clock
It’s hard to get hype when the radio station
only plays soft rock
If only you believe like I believe
we’d get by

If you’re hungry
You could starve to death out here
In this wasteland
They’ll keep you in with guilt and fear
But life is bigger
and you should live before you die
But you’ll surely starve to death
If you’re waiting on those pies in the sky
