Everybody don’t make me laugh
‘Cause it’s not so insane
In the morning it comes to pass
And there’s no one to blame

I’ll tell you my weakness

And if you knew the things I’ve seen
Then you’d have to believe
In the spirits above the sand
And the man in the tree

I’ll tell you my weakness

And if you like it there
I’ll be most everywhere
Tell me to stay
Need me to stay
