THE GREAT DISTRACTION
(written 2000/recorded 2002/revised 2003/2005)


come on, you look so wicked
you don’t have to be intellectual
sufficient are your curves and smile
sufficient to be effectual

in our generation fun
we enjoy things from the outside
‘cause we don’t have the time to stop
our excesses and gain an insight

and there’s still enough time to brood
after demise about some whopping lies

now distract yourself
live it up and shout
"these are precious days"
never mind the doubts
just avoid and mock
every worrying place

now distract yourself
live it up and shout
"these are precious days"
never mind the doubts
just avoid and mock
every worrying place

i do excuse you for everything
and your egomania
but your cunning and your unscrupulousness
make me feel a bit peculiar

i can see you must be so sensual
and by the way so insensitive
maybe i only saw my eyes in yours
impressions are so fugitive

and there’s still enough time to brood
after demise about some whopping lies

now distract yourself
live it up and shout
"these are precious days"
never mind the doubts
just avoid and mock
every worrying place

now distract yourself
live it up and shout
these are precious days
never mind the doubts
just avoid and mock
every worrying place
