the hand that you've been dealt

lyrics

I'm picking up the pieces of my life once more
just picking up the pieces of my life
I'm counting up the reasons not to die good lord
just counting up the reasons not to die

and I've been hurting, I've been yearning
but I've been lurking while you've been shirking
I've been seething while you've been sleeping
and I'll come waving the hand that you've been dealt

I'm picking through the carcass of my crimes once more
just picking through the carcass of my crimes
deciding what to keep and what to leave behind
what to keep and what to leave behind

but I've been working, I've been squirreling
I've been gurning while you've been smirking
I've been celibate, you've been buy-a-bit
but I'll come waving the hand that you've been dealt

I can't get no peace, I can't get no surcease
from this fake flying misery beast they call wrath

and I've been hurting, I've been burning
but I've been lurking while you've been shirking
I'm been scheming while you've been sleeping
and I've been dealing while you've been dreaming
and I'll be ready, I'll come heavy
be like lightning, so inviting
and you'll be weeping, heart be eating
when I come waving the hand that you've been dealt
