Album: Tell the Devil I'm Gettin' There as Fast as I Can

Sometimes I puzzle about the spiritual

And why fear and trembling’s always round

Seems the last time God pitched in down here

Was when pharaoh and his army was drowned


When I seek to unravel the sacred

I get perplexed and over whelmed

I’m not in tune with the ecclesiastical

Can’t get a fix on the ethereal realm



When all is lost and we have no courage

And self reliance ain’t gonna get us through

The old folks say well now all we can do is pray

Ah perhaps that’s the best thing we can do


I am not profound or perceptive

Most times I don’t know what I’m saying

It’s likely God don’t need to hear my prayers

I just need to hear me praying
