Lyrics

Never Trust This Weary World

It all adds up to nothing
It all rolls into one
You can’t take one from nothing
Tell me can you son
Can’t get blood from a diamond
Can’t get tears from a pearl
Never trust nothing
In this weary world

I once knew a preacher
A complicated man
His one and only message
Was do the best you can
I thought he walked on water
I thought he rolled the stone
Until the day he told me
My soul was not my own

It all adds up to nothing
It all rolls into one
You can’t take one from nothing
Tell me can you son
Can’t get blood from a diamond
Can’t get tears from a pearl
Never trust nothing
In this weary world

I once knew a blind man
His eyes were made of wood
He could see all kinds of things
That I never could
Colors of the rainbow
To him were ever hid
But the colors of my feelings
To him were vivid

It all adds up to nothing
It all rolls into one
You can’t take one from nothing
Tell me can you son
Can’t get blood from a diamond
Can’t get tears from a pearl
Never trust nothing
In this weary world

The moral of my story
The moral of my tale
Nothing is for certain
And everything’s for sale
No matter what they’ve shown you
No matter what you’ve heard
Never trust nothing
In this weary world
