lyrics

There’s women in the kitchen, slaving on account of the fall
I watch them washing dishes and taking all my telephone calls
Sir I’m sorry but he’s busy, he’ll call you when he’s ready to talk

The gents are in the parlor, the tramps are up against the wall
They’re harboring the fugitives and soaking them in alcohol
And striking up a match you start to think you didn’t want it at all

But it gives me a reason to be, it gives me a reason to try
It gives me a reason and I don’t really want to know why

Now there’s ice in the desert and there's sand in the polar bear’s way
We used to see rainbows but nowadays it’s nothing but rain
And when I went to see the sun, I was confronted and I hurried away

But it gave me a reason to be, it gave me a reason to try
It gave me a reason and I don’t really want to know why

And I say everything will be okay
But nothing’s going to be
