God Bless This Mess

  • Daddy's in the hallway
    Hanging pictures on the wall
    And Mama's in the kitchen
    Making casseroles for all

    My brother came home yesterday
    From somewhere far away
    He doesn't look like I remember
    As he stares off into space

    He must've seen some ugly things
    He just can't seem to say

    [Chorus]
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess

    Got a job in town
    Selling insurance on the phone
    With Robert and Teresa
    And two con men from back home

    Everyone I call up doesn't have the time to chat
    Everybody is so busy doing this and doing that
    Something has gone missing

    And it makes me kinda sad, oh

    [Chorus]

    Heard about the day
    That two skyscrapers came down
    Firemen, policemen
    People came from all around

    The smoke covered the city
    And the body count did rise
    The president spoke words of comfort
    With tears in his eyes

    Then he led us as a nation
    Into a war all based on lies, oh

    [Chorus]

    God bless this mess.Writer/s: SHERYL CROW
