lyrics

GOD'S GREAT PLAN

When you're lying in the sun on a beach in hot Bermuda
Where the waiter brings martinis that you sip with elan
And you meet some woman with a smile like a barracuda
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?

She drags you up to her 90 square apartment
Where she feeds you homemade sushi flown in from Japan
And she whispers 'What's inside your secret compartment'
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?

If I told you my name, don't you know I'd be faking
It's not that I'm crazy, just a little confused.
Look at my hands, they won't sop shaking
Would you say it's just the substances I've used?

When you're sidewalk surfing on the streets of New York City
And some busker plays a tune that make you think of Iran
And you fill with the unfamiliar taste of pity
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?

When you're flying through the air on the way to your assignment
With a contact calling in from the Gulf of Oman
He says the deal is just a question of refinement
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?

When you're vaping by the pool at the post-production party
With a young director working on a moonlight tan,
In an effort to make sexual repartee
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?

If I told you the time, don't you know I'd be lying
Cause I can't even read what's written on my own face
Out in the streets there are millions crying
Would you say it's just the cost of the human race?

When you're lying in the middle of the road in your silk pajamas
With your house behind you burning like a cross of the Klan
In keeping with the best Tibetan lamas
Do you say it's all just part of God's great plan?
