Apes Pigs & Spacemen – Take Our Sorrows Swimming lyrics

Businessmen lose millions, no one asks where did it go.
Soldiers become heroes shooting people they don't know.
Innocence is tossed away without a ray of hope
And corporations poison us, but only criminals smoke dope.

Ahh, don't expect too much from me.
Ahh, the only help I can be is

Take our sorrows swimming
Charity is for the living
When you feel all hope is dimming

We can take our sorrows for a swim
Instead of drowning them.

We're wading in the swampwater of superstitious times.
It seems the darker you portray yourself
The brighter you will shine.
Politicians ask us to give credence to their lies
And churches claim your soul
But only criminals get high.

Pre, chorus, etc.
