No One's Laughing

lyrics

"No one laughs at God in a hospital.
No one laughs at God in a war.
No one's laughing at God
when they're starving or freezing or so very poor.
No one laughs at God
when a doctor calls after some routine tests.
No one's laughing at God when it's gotten real late,
and their kids not back from that party yet"

I don't feel like laughing anymore
I don't feel like rapping on these tracks anymore
I burned my notebook and threw the scraps on the floor
Watched the pieces turn to ash, like this all happened before
It's a tragedy, I don't have it anymore.
I don't wanna be Diastro, kicked the habit out the door.
I don't wanna pop pills but the rabbit hole is deep
I don't wanna blackout, just wanna be Devin Keith
But no one's laughing at the things I have to say
I watch them cover up the ears, close their eyes and walk away
Cover their mouths and hold back the nervous laughter
Just pretend it isn't happening, we'll laugh about it after
But there's no happy ever after, that's all folks
We had our chance at the punch line, now it's all jokes
I watch the planet damaged damit so sad but it's true
You don't have to laugh at me, the cosmos just laughed at you

"No one laughs at God in a hospital.
No one laughs at God in a war.
No one's laughing at God
when they're starving or freezing or so very poor.
No one laughs at God when the cops knock on your door,
and say "We've got some bad news sir..."
No one's laughing at God when there's a family fire or flood.
But God can be funny"

Isn't it ironic, man isn't it funny?
We traded, spiritualism for the worship of paper Money
What are you worth? Are you ahead of the curve?
Do you serve a purpose, do you purposefully serve?
I never wanted a car, I was so fucked up I'd swerve
but I need it to work, I'm still not sure what it's for
The payments and insurance stay keeping me poor
When I think I'm in the clear, the Devil's knocking on my door
I can't get ahead, stalemate, failed sinner.
A lukewarm microwaved god tv dinner
I might as well admit that I'll never be a winner
Cuz my soul his lost, tossed the day I was delivered
Deliver me from evil, I wanna repent
But I'm up to my neck in bills from this IRS debt
So unless I hit the lottery I need this next check
I hope my son knows I tried when I die, give my respects

"No one laughs at God in a hospital.
No one laughs at God in a war.
No one's laughing at God
when they're starving or freezing or so very poor"

I've been poor my whole life, this aint a new thing
Boiled water for baths and laughed
"see what the truth brings?"
I researched the holy books, did the sleuth thing
but only Satan responded cuz god isn't into the blue things.
I took that a sign he wasn't real,
tried to blame society for the terrible things I feel
Truth is stranger than a fictional news reel.
The television shows us what to believe, mass appeal.
You need a job to get money so you can buy
Because if you didn't make purchases,
then everyone's jobs would die
So work hard and buy all the things you don't need
Get a platinum pinky ring and buy 10 pounds of weed
Buy a million dollar house, with a garden of fruit trees
So everyone else can suffer the same exact fate as me
As my plane crashes down, I turn to the guy next to me
"We're all going to hell, well at least the nuts were free"

"No one laughs at God
when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake.
No one's laughing at God
when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else,
and they hope that they're mistaken.
No one laughs at God when the cops knock on your door,
and say "We've got some bad news sir..."
No one's laughing at God when there's a family fire or flood.
But God can be funny.
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way.
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini,
or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus.
God can be so hilarious,Ha-Ha."
