Track Name: Save Yourself
Do you expect Jesus, sweet Jesus
To come down from heaven, news at 11
Are you waiting for Jesus, to make it all right for you
Are you asking Jesus, sweet Jesus
To cure your cancer
Give you the answer
Make you a better dancer, what is the chance here
That your faith will pull you through

You gotta gotta save yourself
You gotta gotta save yourself

And what about the state, ruled by the great
Did you elect your slate, who filled up their plates
As they swilled down pork barrels
Was there no Christmas carol sung for you
And the money men, do you depend
On them to lift your end
Give you employment, bounty and enjoyment
When the baby needs new shoes
In the lonely night, do you lie awake
Praying some one will come along
And give you the big break

You gotta gotta save yourself
You gotta gotta save yourself

While its up to you, you cant do it all alone
You got reach out your hands, pick up the phone
Get your brother and your sister, squares and hipsters
To help carry the load
Don’t give up in distress, at the size of the mess
Just ask that lady down the road, everybody at the show
All the high and those laid low
People you don’t yet know
No more lonely nights, once everyone’s awake
Making a better way
For all our sakes

You gotta gotta save yourself
You gotta gotta save yourself
You gotta gotta save yoursel
