Forgive me this sin, I'm falling over
And flashing tin grins and rolling in clover
So ready to get out and eager to please
Well it's late in the day in the middle of a life, but it's early in the century

I never got it
I never got it before, hey, hello
Oh, how do you get on so much undone?
It's like it was before

We both got a lot to be thankful for
And we both got a lot to be thankful for

Forgive me my tongue, it doesn't know what it's doing
It used to get washed out, now it's undisciplined and crude
I'm losing my language and calling a truce
And the shape of the thoughts in my head
Aren't right for the words I've got to use

I got it never
Never got 'em before, hey, hello
Oh, how do you get on so much undone?
And still you shine like the sun

We both got a lot to be thankful for
And we both got a lot to be thankful for

White dwarf, red giant
It's empty in space and where there's matter there's violence

I never got it
I never got it before, hey, hello
Oh, how do you get on so much undone?
And still you shine like the sun

We've got a lot to be thankful for
And we both got a lot to be thankful for
We both got a lot to be thankful for
We both got a lot to be thankful for

We both got a lot to be thankful for
