Father John Misty

"Time Makes Fools of Us All"

[Verse 1]
Our naked bodies go on trial
Just for laughing at the joke
Just for saying of the bargain
What any salesgirl already knows
Most of us old men die in the firing line
Just waiting for our number to be called

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Verse 2]
The Memphis king regales his stepsons
When he's loaded as a gun
Says, "A real man is like a country
You need a map to find your one"
Now why do you suppose you must approach the throne
With its back up against the wall?

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, Lord, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Bridge]
My drink is watered down
My champion's on his knees
He lost a rematch, he lost a comeback
He lost for charity
But that's the job
It's what gets the asses in the hall
Watching time just make fools of us all

[Harmonica Solo]

[Verse 3]
The groom is a liar
And the bride is a shill
The priest says, "If these two don't make it
Who among us ever will?"
Don't ask the love you dare for a prediction
Wherein the lovers of tomorrow are involved

[Refrain]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, Lord, I guess time just makes fools of us all

[Outro]
I guess time just makes fools of us all
Oh, I guess time just makes fools of us all
