lyrics

Prayer List
Today I Grew Old And It’s Beaten Me Down

I’m Just One Of Four Men In A Hospital Gown

Prasad Tells The Nurse That He’s Scared To Go Home

Dead Right To Be Scared About Being Alone

And They’re Pushing Him Right Out The Door

Past The Blood From His Pecker That’s Peppered The Floor

And Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List, Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List

Me Neil And Prasad. Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List

Must Be A Pretty Short List And The Whole Thing’s Sad

But The Whole Thing’s Beautiful Too, The Whole Day’s Beautifully Sad.



Neil Just Got Told He Won’t Go Home Today

You Can Feel His Relief That He Wants It This Way

His Wife Isn’t Well She Can’t Take Anymore

Of Scrubbing His Filth Off The Sheets And The Floor

She’s Relieved He Won’t Walk Out The Door

And Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List

Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List, Me, Neil And Prasad

Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List. Must Be A Pretty Short List

But The Whole Things Sad, Yes The Whole Things Beautiful Too

The Whole Things Beautifully Sad



And I’ve Been Waiting So Long To Say I’m Gone

I’ve Been Waiting For Weeks To Move On

I’ve Been Waiting So Long To Be Up And Gone

I’ve Been Waiting For Weeks To Get Stronger

I’ve Been Willing This Time To Move On



I Was The First To Check In, The Last To Punch Out

I Pack Up My Things As I Shuffle About.

I Have Eight Weeks Ahead Of Me Cutting And Pasteing

With No Guarantee Of Just What I’ll Be Facing

I’m All Skin And Bones And My Spirit Is Wasteing Away



And Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List, Me Neil And Prasad

Jim’s Got Us On A Prayer List

And The Whole Things Sad, But The Whole Things Beautiful Too

The Whole Things Been Wonderfully Sad



And I’ve Been Waiting So Long Just To Say I’m Gone

I’ve Been Waiting For Weeks To Move On

I’ve Been Waiting This Long To Be Up And Gone

I’ve Been Waiting For Weeks To Get Stronger

I’ve Been Waiting For Weeks Get On.
