Lifeboy

(Anastasio/Marshall)

Swinging on the lifeline
Fraying bits of twine
Entangled in the remnants of the
Knot I left behind
And asking you to help me make it
Finally unwind

But God never listens to what I say
God never listens to what I say
And you don’t get a refund
If you overpray

And when the line is breking
And when I’m near the end
When all the time spent leading
I’ve been following instead
When all my thoughts and memories are
Left hanging by a thread

God never listens…
Stranded on this slender string
The minutes seem to last a lifetime
Dangling here between the light above
And blue below that drags me down

But God never listens to what I say
God never listens to what I say
And you don’t get a refund
If you overpray
