Charlie Brown's Parents

Album: Pet Your Friends (1995)
  • And I can't hear
    What you're saying, what you're doing to me
    And can't you see
    It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words
    So pry open your words

    I don't want to talk about Elvis
    No I don't want to go on pretending, no
    Because if feels like I'm talking to
    I'm talking to Charlie Brown's parents
    It feels like I'm talking to
    A lonely man without a vision
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision

    Why he's a lonely man without a vision?
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision

    'Cause I can't hear
    What you're saying and what you're doing to me
    And can't you see
    It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words

    I don't want to talk about Jesus
    And I don't want to go on converting, no
    Because it feels like I'm talking to
    I'm talking to Charlie Brown's parents
    It feels like I'm talking to
    A lonely man without a vision
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision

    Why he's a lonely man without a vision?
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision

    'Cause I can't hear
    What you're saying and what you're doing to me
    And can't you see
    It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words

    Why he's a lonely man without a vision?
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision
    Why he's a lonely man without a vision?
    Stuffed his mouth with indecision

    'Cause I can't hear
    What you're saying and what you're doing to me
    And can't you see
    It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words

    Pry open your words, pry open
    And pry open, and pry open your words
    Yeah pry open your words
    Pry, pry open your words, pry open your words
    And pry open your wordsWriter/s: GEORGE EDWARD III PENDERGAST, JOHN ROBERT RICHARDS, RODNEY BROWNING, SCOTT PRESTON ALEXANDER
