"Deja Vu" lyrics - ROGER WATERS

"Deja Vu"

If I had been God
I would have rearranged the veins
In the face to make them more resistant
To alcohol and less prone to aging
If I had been God
I would have sired many sons
And I would not have suffered
The Romans to kill even one of them

[Chorus 1:]
If I had been God with my staff and my rod
If I had been given the nod
I believe I could have done a better job

And if I were a drone
Patrolling foreign skies
With my electronic eyes for guidance
And the element of surprise

[Chorus 2:]
I would be afraid to find someone home
Maybe a woman at a stove
Baking bread, making rice
Or just boiling down some bones
If I were a drone


The temple's in ruins
The bankers get fat
The buffalo's gone
And the mountain top's flat
The trout in the streams are all hermaphrodites
You lean to the left but you vote to the right
And it feels like deja vu
The sun goes down and I'm still missing you
Counting the cost of love that got lost
And under my Gulf Stream, in circular pools
There's ninety-nine cents
Worth of drunkards and fools
