Wake Me When It's Green

Never quite felt right
but then I never quite
felt wrong
that's no way to make friends
having strong opinions
this is how it all starts
with a crack in the heart
this is how it gets filled
with the kindness of pills
when I wake up to the sun
realize my sleep's been done
who would find me with my gun?
there's no need to make a scene
no need to intervene
just wake me when it's green
I'll be open with you
I've got a closed mind
interesting way to live
trying to forget not to forgive
remember what He said,
"Seventy times seven"
(then they pinned Him to a tree -
don't forget to mention that)
when I wake up to the sun
realize my sleep's been done
who would find me with my gun?
there's no need to make a scene
no need to intervene
just wake me when it's green...
