lyrics

I could hear just fine last night
And I sat up and it went quiet
My right earʼs gone forever
It was there and now itʼs gone
I used to be in stereo
I used to hear and now I donʼt
Iʼm in mono now forever
It was there and now itʼs gone
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
I saw a car turn down the street
And knock a skater off his feet
Then he paused in front of me before accelerating
I had time to jump aside and four unwilling people died
Though Iʼd been saying awful things about my life
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
Come on now let me in
Maybe no reason
But you canʼt go back
The people made a grave mistake
They watched too much TV
And never exercised their minds
And let their spirits atrophy
Today, you said you dreamed last night
I pulled you through a blue door
Into a beautiful bright light
And then you stood me up tonight
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
God knows why
I could hear just fine last night
And I sat up and it went quiet
Iʼm in mono now forever
It was there and now itʼs gone and God knows why
