06. Chance For The Chancers

A Picture Of The Eighth Wonder
by Poor Old Lu



 

Everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
And before the night is thru
This is all going to make sense to you

But you won't hear these words
No you don't have the time
That would be a crime

Right now, right away
Before it gets too cold
And I know how it kills
And I know how it makes you ill

But you won't hear these words
No you don't have the time
That would be a crime

Everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
And before the night is thru
This is all going to make sense



Behind the Song:
'Certainly one of the most haunting, melodic songs that we ever wrote. I was personally completely taken by it the very first time that I heard the music, and I couldn't wait to write lyrics. The title comes from the song 'Honeydrip' off of Ian McCulloch's solo album 'Mysterio'. Like much of our '8th Wonder' album, this song was written entirely in the studio during our 2-week tracking session. A few songs over the years were lyrically driven by my family relationships, and this is one of those. Although it speaks directly to my relationship with my brother, it can also deal on more general terms, that is, those who will not listen to the truth of Jesus Christ and turn a deaf ear instead. The second verse speaks to the brevity of life, the time that we have to share the Gospel, and how difficult it can be to hear. In the final verse, however, the tables turn and the Lord is now comforting me (us) that He takes over when we share our faith with others... and makes the words powerful.' - Poor Old Lu
