Mission Accomplished
(Because You Gotta Have Faith)

 

APPEARS ON


Will Rogers said he never met a man he didn’t like
Wait, let me back up and make sure I got that right
He might have liked every man he met, that’s true
But he never said he liked every man that he knew

I met a woman with a Midas touch
I never could get her to touch very much
I met a man of opportunity
He never offered any of it up to me
I met a soldier at a recruit booth
Said he’d make a man out of me and stole my youth
Working for a man who could not stop lying
Drove us all off a cliff and called it flying
That ain’t flying

Most men flying seem to understand
That a man hasn't technically flown ‘til he lands
If you’re coming into land and you crash and die
All you really did for sure was get too high
You ever get too high?
No. Neither have I
But I will have to, to prove to you guys
I’m so turned around I could calm up a riot.
Fighting for peace? That’s like screaming for quiet

I don’t know but I’ve been told
Might meet a little fox in an atheist hole
I don’t know but I’ve been told
I don’t know but I’ve been told
I don’t know but I’ve been told
I don’t know for sure, I’ve just been told
