What Paints a Better Man?




What paints a better man on the canvas of life?
What time’s a better time when your watch reads now?
What time’s the right time to figure out what the clock says?
What is time?

Who’s claims the boldest heart in the world?
Who say’s their soul can see better off then you or me?
Who called me crazy?
Well they got to be right.
I’d be crazy if I wasn’t crazed

Every town’s got a name for someone like you
They like your opinion but they doubt that it’s true
Every town’s got a name for someone like you

Who gets the better hand when the cards are all dealt?
Who gets the jokers and the deuces wild?
I got a pair of threes and three dumb kings
No more money than a packed house brings

Who’s got the greenest pines in the land?
I found the hardest mountain of might
Don’t want to mess with your calloused hands
Well you drive that van and you play that bass by night

Every town’s got a name for someone like you
They like your invention but they hate what you do
Every town’s got a name for someone like you

What paints a better man on the canvas of life?
What time’s a better time when your watch reads now?
What time’s the right time?
What paints a better man?
What time's a better time?
Who's got the biggest heart
Who gets the better hand?
Who plays a better God?
Who pets a better dog?
What paints a better man?
