Paroles

I lay awake thinkin’ about what it would be
I’ve got an idea, so what would I need?
My hands that I worked with or is it my mind?
The former I think if the weather is kind

I need me a maker, I’m starting to date
I need me a maker, but not on this wage
It’s not worth the money and sure not the time
I’ll find me another when the weather is kind

As soon as it’s started, it’s over I go
As soon as it’s started, I already know
This isn’t for you and it’s not for the fee
It’s nothing I like so it’s nothing I’ll be

See my friend, he’s there, he’s bright as blood
And I say to you, if he works in the mud
Would you give him a minute, would you still shake his hand?
If the answer is no, then you’re less of a man

As soon as it’s started, it’s over I go
As soon as it’s started, I already know
This isn’t for you and it’s not for the fee
It’s nothing I like so it’s nothing I’ll be

This is my journey and I’m getting close
I don’t think I’ll make it first and foremost
Find me a reason and I’ll find history
It’s nothing I like so it’s nothing I’ll be

As soon as it’s started, it’s over I go
As soon as it’s started, I already know
This isn’t for you and it’s not for the fee
It’s nothing I like so it’s nothing I’ll be
Nothing I’ll be, nothing I’ll be…
