"Two Hands Clappin' "

 


There are times when two hands clappin’
don’t make a sound

Addicted to coffee
or perhaps a cigarette,
Sense of euphoria,
always deep in debt,
Can’t stop doin’ it?
you’re gonna go blind,
love and hate,
the double bind,
love and hate,
the double bind

You try to solve
life’s mysteries,
Are appalled at our human
deficiencies,
Dissect the tangled web
of co-dependencies,
Try to compensate
for your own worst tendencies

that’s when two hands clappin’,
two hands clappin’,
that’s when two hands clappin’,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound

One person’s fortune
is another’s trouble,
Search for scraps
in the buffet table’s rubble
One person’s wealth
is another’s hassle,
One person’s prison
another’s castle

One person’s livelihood’s
another’s hustle,
Designer steroid
is another’s muscle,
Guard falls asleep
woods start to rustle,
Guard falls asleep
woods start to rustle

that’s when two hands clappin’,
two hands clappin’,
that’s when two hands clappin’,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound

One rule never covers
everything,
Someone always looks
at it another way,
Drive up the expressway,
miss a turn,
Don’t worry about it,
it’s one way to learn,
Inconvenience
the long way around,
that’s when you may in fact
be homeward bound

that’s when two hands clappin’,
two hands clappin’,
that’s when two hands clappin’,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound,
don’t make a sound.
