Performances (29)

My muffins are in the toaster 
I got my raspberry jam 
My grandfather was a sailor 
that came onto this land 
and he was looking for gold, 
a pretty hand to hold, 
or some cards to fold. 
At least, that's what I was told.

Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go?

Turn on my TV 
They got talking heads in space 
used to be so easy 
to have a little faith 
I used to rely on luck 
To earn an honest buck 
I didn't feel so stuck 
I didn't limp around, like Jon Kruk.

Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go?

I used to have hope 
Now we got soap on a rope 
I used to have dreams 
Now we got overplayed baseball teams 
We got grocery baggers, grafitti taggers, 
golf-ball shaggers, go team go.

Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go?

My landlord knocks upon my door 
He's got that payday face 
I swear to God he should be payin me 
To live inside this place 
It's filled with sharks and fins 
whose double chins say 
Thicken your skin, child 
if you want to win

Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go?

I fix myself some herbal tea 
cause it's healthier they say 
well, healthier ain't half as fun 
I take a cold beer anyday 
I used to have dysfunctional fun 
in the cancerous sun 
with my co-dependent hon 
eatin greasy greasy hotdogs on a buttered up bun

Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go? 
Silver Lining 
Silver Lining, where'd you go?
