Story - When Two And Two Are Five lyrics

["Tell her what she's won, Jay"]

When two and two are five
You're gonna go to work like any other day
Things might be much different
God might be a vengeful one
Your desk might catch on fire
The church will hold a picnic
And Jesus and Elvis will get in free

When two and two are five
They'll change the world, make the faithful pay
The trees of the field and maybe the lilies --
They will comfort you
But in the twinkling of an eye
There will be nothing
Two shakes of somebody's tail -- no still small voice

Meanwhile I'm gonna sleep all day,
get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be
I'm gonna sleep all day, get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be

And in the darkest corners between conscience and faith
(Lord, get my room ready, nothing is adding up)
We'll meet the terrible angel
Straddling our pitiful fathers

Meanwhile I'm gonna sleep all day,
get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be
I'm gonna sleep all day, get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be
(All day, each night)
(All day, each night)

Meanwhile I'm gonna sleep all day,
get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be
I'm gonna sleep all day, get half drunk each night
Be the nothing that is, I'll be the nothing that will be
(All day, each night)
(All day, each night)

All day
