Regina Spektor's "Laughing With"

I just wanted to share with you Regina Spektor's new song "Laughing With" from her new album "Far". The whole album is excellent. I like that she refuses to normalize her style and makes a mark anyway.
No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one's laughing at God When they're starving or freezing or so very poor No one laughs at God When the doctor calls after some routine tests No one's laughing at God When it's gotten real late And their kid's not back from the party yet No one laughs at God When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake No one's laughing at God When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else And they hope that they're mistaken No one laughs at God When the cops knock on their door And they say we got some bad news, sir No one's laughing at God When there's a famine or fire or flood *Chorus* But God can be funny At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or Or when the crazies say He hates us And they get so red in the head you think they're ‘bout to choke God can be funny, When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus God can be so hilarious Ha ha Ha ha No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one's laughing at God When they've lost all they've got And they don't know what for No one laughs at God on the day they realize That the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes But God can be funny At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or Or when the crazies say He hates us And they get so red in the head you think they're ‘bout to choke God can be funny, When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus God can be so hilarious No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one laughing at God in hospital No one's laughing at God in a war No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor No one's laughing at God No one's laughing at God No one's laughing at God We're all laughing with God
