                                             CRACKED OYSTER WORLD

 

V1 I've had some near misses

     Yes some things smelled like success

     But failures overtook me

     And for a while I just regressed

 

V2 But my psyche is resilient

      My mind expands and contracts

      And I soon put aside my doubts

      When I got my confidence back

 

C1 I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl

      I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl,

      In my cracked oyster world

      In my cracked oyster world

 

V3 An hour that goes by is an hour you can't get back

      Like a wad of cash you lost that you laid down at the track

      And I'm not wasting any time

      I'm gonna get what's mine

 

V4 I've suffered tyranny and oppression

      Depression and recession

      And inflation has put so many things out of reach

      But doors will open up when I find the keys

 

C2 I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl

      I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl,

      In my cracked oyster world

      My cracked oyster world

 

V5 I don't need a psychic

    I don't need a crystal ball

    No, I don't need neither

    One day I'll have it all

 

C3 I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl

      I'm sifting thru the shellfish to find a pearl,

      In my cracked oyster world

      My cracked oyster world
