Not A Bottle
It's a Friday night, but something's not right
You cheat their money but you won't take mine
The eyes in my head see through your trickery
I'm not one of your eggs; you can't pickle me!
You sell containers of despair You can't fit a proper drink in there
I can't believe my eyes, I cant believe the price
I look to the sky and i scream … put it in a Jar, not a bottle

I was sitting in my room on a Saturday evening
Bumming around, thinking of leaving
But it seems I have one small problem
I don't know where my keys are and i don't know where i dropped them Oh no! It's such a predicament
I don't know what to do, all my ideas are spent
So i call out to my Mum and say 'Listen up Norah!'
'I'm going out, so please leave the door…'Ajar, not a bottle

I was sitting on my own at home When i invited you over
My intention was musical fusion But we came to some confusion
I wanted to create some harmony
But you came over with some butter and raspberry
I was waiting with my amp and guitar
Then you show up smiling, holding a jam… Jar, not a guitar

Sunday morning has come around
Some go to church to keep their feet on the ground
I've never followed, but some say I shoulda
Some say believe in Brahma, some say believe in Buddha
But the wisest man spoke, and it wasn't from a steeple
He said 'I don't believe in God, I believe in people'
So I turned to the preacher and held my jar to my heart
I said there's one thing I believe in…

and that's drinking from a Jar, not a bottle
