Black Happy — Shuckin' The Jive lyrics

I see my brother walking on the edge
He's holding back his fear and so he smiles instead
Of looking for the snap and all the weight is on his back
And when he shifts his head and he plays dead he
Whispers what I want I want
Peace coming down over me
My sisters caught up in the holy lights
But what she chose to do is so far removed from right
That she's always wanting something more
To keep herself from being bored and when she shifts
Her head and she plays dead and she
Whispers what I want I want
Peace coming down over me
I can't tell you how to live you're old enough now to give
We move in circles big and small on every day
My mind is quicker than my eye
When my heads pointed to the sky
I notice everything inside me is at ease
I wish I could help them all when I can't feel so small
But then I realize sometimes I can't help myself
And every night when I pray I don't know what I should say
I can do more than damn myself
My family is calling, coming any day
And I know by the book that the time will lose it's way
Because a world inside is waiting for a place in line to be
Where the truth is clear and it appears and they
Whisper what I want I want
Peace coming down over me
