or why i don't like card games

i was getting sick on some red wine hyperventilating my life
was i emotionally disturbed? someone asked me, i don't know why
paid a visit to brooke who called up to the devas over the bay
vida blue watch over us all, vida blue please bless this day
over all of us the dealer deals and the jack of assholes is our card

thought i'd walk around this mountain, walked too far that night
then i thought i'd climb it, but it didn't feel right
i went back to the city, exhausted by my day
slept in the bushes by midnight, my dreams blank and gray
over all of us the dealer deals and the jack of assholes is our card

so i went to capt crunch's party, rich people up in the hills
tired sounding rock and roll band, revolution and hot tub spills
somewhere someone was hacking unix, somewhere someone had a plot
me i was nowhere noone, my only clue this song i've got
over all of us the dealer deals and the jack of assholes is his card

my ghosts would not stay buried, my songs remained unsung
i felt like a snake had burrowed deep inside my lung
and everyday, the traffic like thunder, every night the stars like plague
every word a betrayal, every breath a drag
over all of us the dealer deals and the jack of assholes is his card

barbara, i know i was insane, i could never explain it to you
thanks for the bus fare home, thanks for reading it through
one day i found myself on the bottom with nothing more to give
one day i stood up from despair and decided i would live
over all of us the dealer deals and the jack of assholes is his card
