God Bless This Mess (Sheryl Crow)

Daddy's in the hallway Hanging pictures on the wall Mama's in the kitchen Making casseroles for all My brother came home yesterday From somewhere far away He doesn't look like I remember He just stares off into space He must've seen some ugly things He just can't seem to say God bless this mess God bless this mess Got a job in town Selling insurance on the phone With Robert and Teresa And two con men from back home Everyone I call up doesn't have the time to chat Everybody is so busy doing this and doing that Something has gone missing And it makes me kinda sad, oh God bless this mess God bless this mess God bless this mess Heard about the day that two skyscrapers came down Firemen, policemen And people came from all around The smoke covered the city And the body count arise The president spoke words of comfort With tears in his eyes Then he led us as a nation Into a war all based on lies, oh God bless this mess God bless this mess God bless this mess God bless this mess
