Ween – If You Could Save Yourself, You’d Save Us All – Lyrics and Video

It has been a while since I posted some music here, though I listen to it constantly as I work and write.

One song I have been listening to by Ween I thought I would post here, because it is just so filled with powerful emotions, and has many parts to it I think we can all relate to from one point of our life to another.

I was not able to find the official video to this song if there is one, but this fan made video with the works of a very good sand artist is very interesting and is worth watching in its own right.

Ween – If You Could Save Yourself, You’d Save Us All – Lyrics

On a free ride home from the embassy
I saw the governor, and his lover holding hands
When I got to my place, I emptied my suitcase
And opened the windows wide

If you could save yourself, you’d save us all
Is that what you called me for, is that why you’re knocking on my door?
The time I’ve spent, working myself to death
Thought that’s what you wanted
I thought you needed my help
To make it good again, to make us strong
To make you happy, to push you along
And gain some respect, to be thrown a crumb
I was on my knees, when you knocked me down

The wheels fell off, the bottom dropped out
The checks all bounced, I came in your mouth
Your mother came calling but there was no one around
The trash caught fire when the leaves turned brown
The vultures were circling when the circus left town
I left you a note but I wrote it in disappearing ink

If you could save yourself, you’d save us all
Is that what you called me for, is that why you’re knocking on my door?
The time I’ve spent, working myself to death
Thought that’s what you wanted
I thought you needed my help
To make it good again, to make us strong
To make you happy, to push you along
And gain some respect, to be thrown a crumb
I was on my knees, when you knocked me down

Crank it up and enjoy.
