lyrics

once i had religion, but then somewhere i lost it. now i’m just a handsome devil of a jewish born-again agnostic. but sometimes you have to let things slip away. god murdered all the unicorns when the rain filled up the world, but they survive airbrushed on shirts and tattooed on the ankles of girls. and the girls they go to parties, they drink diet coke and rum. and they hold each other’s hair back and they cry when they’re all done. and they turn to each other and say sometimes you have to let things slip away. everything you have right now you will lose someday. anyone can be a musician or go into municipal politics. but it takes a dame named diane or jane to be a famous primatologist. the primatologist says the chimpanzee is as smart as you and me, and the chimp doesn’t cry when a character dies in a book or on tv. because all the chimpanzees know that sometimes you have to let things slip away. everything you have right now you will lose someday. loss is the boss, and you get laid off every day. sometimes you have to let things slip away. and the whiskey rabbi says ‘hey college boy, you should put a bridge in this song’. i said ‘geoff, songwriting’s what you know best, but i think that that would make it too long’. sometimes you have to let things slip away. everything you have right now you will lose someday. today’s hit song is tomorrow’s tired cliche, but sometimes you have to let things slip away.
