Have a friend, calls me up
Says hello, then hangs up
He must have read my mind
These are the days of a different paradigm
Maybe once, even twice
He said, “God does not play with dice”
Yet if he’s everywhere
He’s in casinos with aces to spare

Oh, love is God’s mistake
Oh, love is God’s mistake

Ours is not to reason why
As we fall from way up high
Into the water
Like a lamb to the slaughter
Even now, God’s mistake
Sets us up for one more heartbreak
God you look mighty fine
Dressed as the devil in cosmic pantomime

Oh, love is God’s mistake
Oh, love is God’s mistake
Never was so much at stake
Oh, love is God’s mistake

“Don’t Drink The Water” by Tears For Fears.

Listen to this Song!

Words and music by Roland Orzabal and Alan Griffiths. © 1995 EMI Virgin Music Ltd. (PRS)/Chrysalis Songs (BMI).

This is a religion
No, this is a drag
That man over there is smoking sweet cigarettes
Hey look at that fag!

I had a dream
I saw you swim
Sink to your grave
Down to Davy Jone’s locker
Under the waves
Don’t say, “Thank God for simple truths”

Take me to your leader
Take me for a ride
The shutters were never open
The days I used to hide
All of the things
I never knew
I should have said
When you looked life Frida Kahlo
Curled up in bed
Don’t say, “Thank God for simple truths”
Don’t drink the water, baby
Don’t drink the water, baby

So much emotion, these eyes a strange kind of blue
Deep as the ocean, they name a sea after you
Don’t say, “Thank God for simple truths”

Don’t drink the water, baby
Don’t drink the water, baby
Don’t drink the water, baby
Don’t drink the water, baby

“Mr. Pessimist” by Tears For Fears.

Listen to this Song!

Words and music by Roland Orzabal and Alan Griffiths. © 1993 EMI Virgin Music Ltd. (PRS)/Chrysalis Songs (BMI).

Time will swallow
Your precious Time
Like magic create the future

What makes a man so fickle?
Who put the daggers in those eyes?
Was it to learn
Through dark days of struggle?

Was it to burn
To burst all our bubbles?
Thunder and rain
Well the cynical flame will it heat, stick, and blister?
Thunder and rain

Evangelistic brother
Should be banging a tambourine
Go wash your hands and fingers
Till your mind is clean

Was it your fate
To sleep like a normal?
Time and decay
No man is immortal
Thunder and rain
Boredom and pain lit the cynical flame
Will it head, stick, and blister?
Thunder and rain
Still try to resist the pessimist
The pessimist no no

And these things I find
In the back of my mind
Where time lasts forever
I get all mixed up
Think I’m all mankind

Listen Mr. Pessimister
With your Catholic taste
Oh listen Mr. Pessimister Pessimister
We do not relate
Listen Mr. Pessimister Pessimister Pessimister
Mr. Pessimister
