lyrics

LAZARUS

Well, the cave was dark
and smelled of must.
The only sight in the latern light
was motes of dust.
Then a deep deep sigh
on a slab of cold stone...
old friend with leaded lids
and lying prone.

I said, “Lazarus,
time to clear your head.
You been staying still
like you’re already dead.
Just rise to your feet -
let me show you the way.
The one trick to the game I play:
you gotta live it like you got one more day.”

So we exit through the gift shop,
head back to the hotel.
On the front steps stand record reps
begging for a slice of the soul we sell.
Well, in this and most realities
where cool cats cut grooves like these,
you gotta put up if you want to get down.
Looks like the word’s getting out we ain’t fooling around.

I said, “Lazarus,
time to clear your head.
You been laying low
as though you’re already dead.
Just rise to your feet -
let me show you the way.
The one trick to the game I play:
you gotta live it like you got one more...
one more...
one more day."

Lazarus,
time to clear your head.
You been laying low
as though you’re already dead.
Rise to your feet -
let me show you the way.
The one trick to the game I play:
you gotta live it like you got one more...
one more...
one more day.
