Praise The Lord
By Poi Dog Pondering
Wishing Like A Mountain and Thinking Like the Sea
Columbia CK 45 403 1990
«Praise the Lord,» he said to me
And he seemed quite happy
He seemed quite at ease
And I said … «Yeah.»
Cause I was just down at the sea
And it occurred to me
That I like to feel it knock me down
Twist and throw and churn me around
'Cause it’s the mother ocean
And I’m just one of her sons
And she can do just what she wants to me
And I know she does nothing purposely
I must respect, that goes unsaid
But it’s all just a twist of fate
And I know about heaven’s gate
'Cause I’ve seen it, but not up close
And I know it ain’t no pearly white
And I know that I’ll be nothing there
Just food for fish and twisting worms
But that’s just fine with me
'Cause when I’m being tossed by the sea
I can feel a force greater than Misery
Greater than my stupid job
Greater than our stupid Bomb
And a time comes to mind without complexity
And she can do just what she wants to me
And I know she does nothing purposely
I must respect, that goes unsaid
But it’s all just a twist of fate
So don’t tell me about the Land of Nod
Where we are supposed to sit at the right hand of God
Where the Lion will lay down the the lamb
'Cause you know damn well he’ll eat him if he can
The Lion doesn’t wanna be pacified
With promises of an endless life
'Cause he knows it’s not that way
He’s not detached he sees it everyday —
The birth, the death and the decay
The birth, the death and the decay
And he accepts, and sees that it’s OK —
He would eat us for our elitist ways
