The Beloved – If Pennies Came From Heaven Could Kark Marx Have Been Mistaken?

the best things in life are bought
until yesterday i’d thought
stack furniture against the door
oh my darlings jean and rita

i’ve seen these men and all the women
waves part, on they go
but if all these pennies
somehow i doubt that he would make housecalls
through restaurants in evening clothes
through restaurants in evening clothes
but i’m tired of these contradictions
would this mean that all’s forgiven?
well, he could keep the rest
walking fast, thinking slow
if they came from heaven
but if engels came, saved us all
if they came from heaven
landmine the kitchen floor

days don’t pass so calmly
could karl marx have been mistaken?
what this country’s made of me
opening windows, pulling strings
i said he could keep the, keep the rest
in love with everyday living
council roads to revolution
i doubt he would make housecalls
life couldn’t be much sweeter
but all these pennies
swinging all around you see

strange when you’re led by the nose
the smell of napalm in the morning
invaded by salvation’s army
if this is all god’s given
