Organized religion has never been my game
But as I pass out the body and blood it feels all the same
Fungus among us has never answered much
Sometimes it gets close enough for me to touch

But what am I to do
When you won’t follow through
And when you go and leave me so what will I say
So I can sleep today

When all the wrong things in the world seem so far
What matters most to me is how close you are
Cause though Jesus, he got to try it once again
Even I don’t think I’m gods closest friend

So with one shot on my mind
It’s fairly plain to see I’m pressed for time
When you go to Francisco all that I will do is play
So I can sleep today

When I wake up my designated lover isn’t here
And that she’ll never be is what I fear
Because California is only a few hours away
It would take me entire days

So once we again collide
I’m gonna do my best to get you to sleep beside
But to scream her name inside my bad could give my tongue a blister She’s got the same name as my sister
Subtly was never meant for me
