Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a funny lightning, threatening with striking
But it moves too quick for a picture
There's a funny lightning 'round the corner
Hiding but I'm too smart just to catch it with gloves and rubber
So I stay put right here, watching the sky for tears
Let the fools and cowboys roar to wrecks
Verse 2
But if I should wake up and find my home's in half
Who is it?
Blame nature
I guess I have to laugh
And if I should wake up and find my bed
Has moved six inches, six closer to the west
Verse 3
But this funny lightning I wanna invite in if I could learn how to teach it
I salt the corners of my room because, because a ghost can never be too careful
Verse 4
And if I should wake up and find my home's in half
Who did it?
Oh nature, I hope you have a laugh
And if I should wake up and find my bed has
Moved twelve inches, twelve closer to my god
Verse 5
Whip crash there's a flash and I'm back to wanting more
The crack is movin' up the wall
Whip crash there's flash and I'm back to wanting more
I can't help thinking this is war
Verse 6
Whip crash there's a flash and I'm back to wanting more
The crack is movin' up the wall
Whip crash there's flash and I'm back to wanting more
I can't help thinking this is war
