Artist/Band: David Byrne
Lyrics for Song: Ready for This World
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - David Byrne



When I hear, laying on the ground

A machine gun is sitting on my couch

I close my eyes

I shut my mouth

Well, I can't even hear a sound

I don't know if I'm ready for this world

I'm not ready for this world



I knew a girl, it did not last for long

She said she changed, she said i, I was not yet grown

Well, I went back

I had to see

But another boy had replaced me

I see I'm not ready for this world

I'm not ready for this world



Watched my grandmom get drunk one night

We watched tv, it was black and white

She said, boy, why don't you trust no one?

Your own behind never let you down



I bought a gun, but it's just for self-defense

Mmm, I seen this world, it don't make any sense

No more heartache, no more pain

Now, no one's hurting me again

I'm just getting ready for this world

I'm getting ready for this world



When I hear, laying on the ground

A machine gun is sitting on my couch

I close my eyes

I shut my mouth

Well,i can't even hear a sound

I don't know, I guess now I'm ready for this world

Yeah, I'm ready for this world

I'm heading up this world!
