It's rare for me to post song lyrics, but...


Duck and Cover · Glen Phillips

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away, he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Mama’s thinking family dinners weren’t too much to ask for

Everybody here’s got a story to tell
Everybody’s been through their own hell
There’s nothing too special ’bout getting hurt
Getting over it, that takes the work

One way or another, we all need each other
Nothing’s gonna turn out the way you thought it would
Friends and lovers don’t you duck and cover
’Cause everything comes out the way it should

Blessed are the humble, blessed are the meek
Blessed are the hungry, blessed are the weak
Blessed are the ones on the other side
Blessed are we for just being alive

One day I stopped wanting anything at all
The heavens opened up like a waterfall
No use in worrying ’bout when it ends
Just for now be thankful for what I get

’Cause one way or another, a man’s gonna suffer
Makes no difference the way you want it
Friends and lovers don’t you duck and cover
’Cause everything comes out the way it should

It seems like life is a palindrome
Cry when you die, cry when you’re born
In between it’s all about the ups and downs
Add ’em all together and they cancel each other out

’Cause one way or another, one way or another
You won’t get what you wanted but you’ll get enough for sure
’Cause one way or another, winter pays for the summer
You won’t get what you wanted, but what you got’ll be good

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away, he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Mama’s thinking happy endings weren’t too much to ask for
