It’s Gonna Get Better

David Gans

The man who stole the future
Has an oil drum for a heart
And a strange preoccupation
With other people’s private parts
They want us to do what they say
But I’d rather live my own damn way
We’ll take our cultures back someday, but

It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
But I know it’s gonna get better

Yes I know it’s gonna get better
‘Cause it almost always does
Can’t say much about the who and how
But I believe it just because
Day by day our bonds unweave
Mammon gloats as nature grieves
O save us from these pious thieves, and…

It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
But I know it’s gonna get better
I love the world we live in
‘Cause I live in it with you

I don’t know why they’re so proud
To be defined by what they buy
These righteous despoilers, these blood-for-oilers
Taking orders from on high
Now I can’t say whose word I’d take
About this God whose laws I break
I’ll swan-dive into that fiery lake, but…

It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
But I know it’s gonna get better

Endarkened forces are bearing down
On us unconforming souls
Waving flags and bashing fags
And burning truth like coal
Now I don’t know but I’ve been told
The naming rights have all been sold
Hell is hot and Heaven’s cold, and…

It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
It’s gonna get worse before it gets better
But I know it’s gonna get better
I love the world we live in
‘Cause I live in it with you
