Who Will Save Your Soul


Lyrics & Info

Tabs

Performances (830)

People living their lives for you on TV 
They say they're better than you and you agree 
He says hold my calls from behind those cold brick walls 
Says come here boy, there ain't nothing for free 
Another burger, another hot dog, some fries 
A wish in the well, hope your health don't go to hell, well 
Another doctor's bill, another lawyer's bill 
Another cute cheap thrill 
You know you love him if you put him in your will but

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now? 
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy 
Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?

We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them 
The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue 
Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower 
Went up to where the homeless had their homes 
So we pray to as many gods are there are flowers 
But we call religion our friend 
We're so worried about saving our souls 
Afraid that God will take His toll 
if we forget to begin

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now? 
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy 
Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?

Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill 
You get social security, but that don't pay your bills` 
There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay 
So you bargain with the Devil, say you're o.k. for today, 
You say that you love them, take their money and run 
Say, it's been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things 
Those flings, those strings you've got to cut, 
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust your butts.

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now? 
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy 
Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?
