I pray for peace.
They require me to kick into high gear.
We may as well have our ph.d.'s.
Might we compose
Was never taken into account.

I pray they let out or talk it out.
She would give me a wink across the room.
I would've made a really good lawyer.
I had a really good strategy
For putting things back on the wall of the world.

Thank God it was the goddamned wall.
I would have to hide all my valuables.
Who would calm my mother down?
Who would calm me down once I talked her through it?

My mother and I were the official peacemakers.
It was a full-time job.
I would send my mother directly to bed, yeah
Don't collect 200.
We'd talk about it till 5 a.m.
When I'd come visiting her 5 years later.

We would pray for peace.
It was most comfortable and familiar.
