Lyrics of

God's eye view

Last chance: Could you make it baby if you only had one more one
Fast break: You think the world is waiting while you're gettin'
   your bikini done
Screen pass: Like a blind side tackle boiling up from way behind
Cheap shot: You can feel it coming but you know
   it's gonna blow your mind
So you rock so - and you skank so -
Well if you think so - why not say so

Trash talk: Now you tell your girlies that it's nothin' but a burnout buzz
Chump change: When you pick up the pieces
   you don't even know what it was
Goose chase: A little runaround action
   just to keep the background pure
Jump cut: To the grim conclusion that you never can tell for sure

Well it's the god's eye view
Better take a long hard look
You're gonna have me right now
Like it says in the book
It's the god's eye view
Baby it's the queen and rook
Chasing one lonely pawn
No it wouldn't take long

Safe house: Just a simulation of the mommy-and-daddy groove
Mood swing: When the game gets tired
   and you're ready to bust a move
Bad luck: There are no surprises when the best laid plans go bust
Deal with it: In the glaring absence of anything you could trust
So you rock so - it's a fact so -
Now that you know so - why don't you act so

Breakdown: Of the last resistance and the partisans fold their tent
Mind meld: Like a permanent picture of your pussyprint in cement
Big bang: It's a bible story with a plot twist at the end
History: And whatever happened well it's happening here again

It's the god's eye view
This is where the deal goes down
Girl you better get right
With the facts on the ground
It's the god's eye view
Everything they say is so
No original sins
The house always wins

He says: Me and her went walking by the river on Friday night
He says: And we started talking and she says you know it don't seem right
She says: After all that's happened and I end up with a prick like you
Too bad: Well it's too bad darlin' and there's nothing for a man to do

It's the god's eye view
Baby take a long hard look
I was standing right there
When they wrote in the book
