John Butler Trio — Life What It Seems lyrics

Strange as it may be
Sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems
It's like going to war to make peace
Sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems

Like the old man out there he lives on the streets
And now he is asking for a dollar off everybody he meets
Never knew he used to be a milloinare on wall street
Sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems

Just like that plane you're late for leaving without you
And now it changes all you plans and puts you in a bad mood
And that plane ends up crashing but at the time man you would not have a clue
That being late would be so good and life is strange, this true

So sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems
Sometimes good presents come in bad wrapping
Strange as it may be
Sometimes bad presents come in good wrapping

Just like our Prime Minister with his new policy
called the RFA he says he wants to save the old trees
You have a look at what he has come up with his business mates and you will see
That the man could not give a shit and some things ain't what they seem

Just like that environmental aid sponsored by Shell
So we can all endorse the killing and go straight to hell
It's like Bunnings saying they're supporting your community
While they're chopping it right down and somethings ain't what they seem

Oh I won't forget
Everything you know it's happening, happening for a reason
So there ain't no need, no need in worrying...
Just get your job done.

Strange as it may be
Sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems
It's like going to war to make peace
Sometimes life you know it ain't what it seems
