world of shit lyrics – eels

in this world of sh*t
baby you are it
a little light that shines all over,
must take over and see us through the night

daddy was a troubled genius
momma was a real good egg
why don’t we just get together
for whatever and see if it’s all right.

i spent so many days
just starrin’ at the haze
i think that’s a book
that i don’t have to write again
and when i rise i shine,
i’ve got you on my mind
and the question isn’t, “if”
the question is, “marry me?”

baby i confess
i am quite a mess
so let’s get married and make some people
more than equal
in this world of sh*t
i will make a pledge
to get down off the ledge
you and i belong together
and forever
we will have our life.

[don’t be surprised if it’s off, i was typing by ear]
