Against The Nature Lyrics

by Gogol Bordello

Well I confess, I had myself a good laugh
Remembering the times of my provincial living
When I was ready to break horns of all the cows
Just to establish myself as non-conforming

Well, time has passed
And I look back with a different eye
And thought it's time to
Re-enlist with Wonder-Why Guy
I reached-a for a pen to sign a peace treaty
But suddenly got up
And took to running wild

Against the nature
Against the grain
For as long and as far as you can
For only there lays entertainment
For a heart of merry-lasting man

What do you do my friend
When you are done with
Investigating bounds of reality?
Creating hundred of amendments
For each one of commandments
Ready to shoot yourself out of curiosity

But wait!
There is a way
There ain't nothing new to say...

However, against the nature
Against the grain
There as long and as far as you can
For only there lays entertainment
For a heart of merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man

I wake up in a night
Turn on my lamp
Settling in direction of my vector
When I find small parcel from the Lord
Fruit basket sprinkled with nectars
And there is sin in my legacy
All quiet only voices dining fearsome
I shall a piece of garlic down my throat
Come on you down the stairs, come on
Your eternal falls of reason

Against the nature
Against the grain
There as long and as far as you can
For only there lays entertainment
For a heart of merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man
Oh, merry-lasting man

Against the nature
Against the grain
There as long and as far as you can
For only there lays entertainment
For a heart of merry-lasting man
