lyrics

Oversight
by Derek Gavey

In the morning, in the evening and in the afternoon
I'm thinking red thoughts, I'm dreaming green ones I'm making my self blue

We fall in line, in line we fall, every time.

Hey mister dealer, deal me a good hand it's almost closing time.
I played my hands well but in the end it's fate that rolls that die.

In god we trust, we trust in god, too much.

Chorus:
So many nights I've lost my mind, intentions only to unwind, so take my hand and lead me home.

Tuck me in and kiss goodnight, forgive me for me dim(pale)(weak) eye sight, you see I'm blind and need your over sight.

I've teased the devil, I've praised the pastor, I've suffered through my sin
I've lost my conscience, please help me find it, or just pass me some gin

So drink for me, I'll drink till you depart. (escape)
So raise your drink, your drinks are raised in vain.

In the morning, in the evening and in the afternoon
I'm thinking red thoughts, I'm dreaming green ones I'm making my self blue

I've crossed the line, our lines are crossed…
