    Twist in My Sobriety

    All God’s children need travelling shoes
    Drive your problem from here
    All good people read good books
    Now your conscience is clear
    I hear you talk, girl
    Now your conscience is clear

    In the morning when I wipe my brow
    Wipe the miles away
    I like to think than I can be so willed
    And never do what you say
    I’ll never hear you
    And never do what you say

    Look my eyes are just holograms
    Look your love has drawn red from my hands
    From my hands you know you’ll never be
    More than twist in my sobriety
    More than twist in my sobriety

    We just poked a little empty pie
    For the fun the people had at night
    Late at night don’t need hostility
    The timid smile and pause to free

    I don’t care about their different thoughts
    Different thoughts are good for me
    Up in arms and chaste and whole
    All God’s children took their toll

    Look my eyes are just holograms
    Look your love has drawn red from my hands
    From my hands you know you’ll never be
    More than twist in my sobriety
    More than twist in my sobriety

    Cup of tea take time to think, yeah
    Time to risk a life, a life, a life
    Sweet and handsome, soft and porky
    You pig out ’til you’ve seen the light
    Pig out ’til you’ve seen the light

    Look my eyes are just holograms
    Look your love has drawn red from my hands
    From my hands you know you’ll never be
    More than twist
    More than twist in my sobriety
