Versuri Eagles - Frail Grasp on the Big Picture



Well, ain't it a shame 
That our short little memories 
Never seem to learn 
Lessons of history 
 
We keep makin' the same mistakes 
Over and over and over and over again 
And then we wonder why 
We're in the shape we're in 
 
Good old boys down at the bar 
Peanuts and politics 
They think they know it all 
They don't know much of nothing 
 
Even if one of them was to read the newspaper 
Cover to cover 
That ain't what's going on 
Journalism's dead and gone 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
Light fading and the fog is getting thicker 
It's a frail grasp on the big picture 
Dark ages 
 
You?re my love drunk friend 
All that red wine and candlelight 
And soulful conversations 
That go on until the dawn 
 
How many times can you tell your story? 
How many hangovers can you endure 
Just to get some snuggling done? 
 
You're living in a hollow dream 
You don't have the slightest notion 
What long term love is all about 
 
All your romantic liaisons 
Don't deal with eternal questions like 
Who left the cap off the freaking toothpaste? 
Whose turn to take the garbage out? 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
You keep on rubbin' that, you're gonna get a blister 
It's a frail grasp on the big picture 
I've seen it all before 
 
And we pray to our Lord 
Who we know is American 
He reigns from on high 
He speaks to us through middlemen 
 
And He shepherds His flock 
We sing out and we praise His name 
He supports us in war 
He presides over football games 
 
And the right will prevail 
All our troubles shall be resolved 
We have faith in the Lord 
Unless there's money or sex involved 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
Nobody's calling them for roughing up the pitcher 
It's a frail grasp on the big picture 
Heaven help us 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
All waiting for that miracle elixir 
It?s a frail grasp on the big picture 
I don't wonder anymore 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
Somebody says, "You brought her here so go ahead and kiss her? 
It?s a frail grasp on the big picture 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
Light fading and the fog is getting thicker 
It's a frail grasp on the big picture 
 
Frail grasp on the big picture 
Frail grasp on the big picture
