Performed live in 1980 as "Dancing on Your Thumb"

Lyrics

I don't mind walking through the wind and the rain
I don't mind waiting when they cancel the train
But when I don't have love I stand and complain
I hate everything that I see

I don't mind waiting 'til the end of the world
'Cause in the Universal Womb I am curled
But Armageddon when the flag is unfurled
You know the first to fall out will be me

We are all dancing on God's thumb
We are all dancing on God's thumb

I don't mind eating off the side of the plate
I don't mind jumping off the top of the gate
There's a solution if you're willing to wait and
Believe that it's worth waiting for

'Cause if you try to live for nobody else
You find it gets too much to live for yourself
You'll still be empty though you're crawling with wealth
And you're too fat to squeeze through the door

We are all dancing on God's thumb
We are all dancing on God's thumb

We are all dancing on God's thumb

There's no use preaching like you're gonna be saved
You cannot argue with a cross and a grave
It's just a question of the way you behave
If you wanna survive on your feet

We got a bunch of crippled looners in power
Who wanna treat us to a nuclear shower
I'd give my life for just a gun and an hour
You know I'd murder 'em out in the street

We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
We are all dancing on God's thumb (It's a mean disco)
