Eels – Good Night On Earth Lyrics

Once upon a time, mom and dad felt fine
Thought it was fine for a birth
Ever since then the trouble never ends
But it’s a good night on earth

Get nothing going is a sweet lament
Doing what you gotta do is all you got
Gather up the things and run to the void
Remember what you been taught
Soak it all in like tonic and gin
Everything for what it’s worth
Is relative, but look my friend
It’s a good night on earth

Once upon a time I was feeling fine
And you know that time is now
Nothing gonna wreck it, you know I can’t deflect it
I always do so now
Everyone’s a critic, I can’t stand heels
So says Colin Firth
Rain on my parade, then the clouds fade
It’s a good night on earth
