A Ab* Ab* Styrofoam cup of mud in my good hand, A Disembodied voice of God in the trash can E Eyes in the ashes, feeling for the future E Sleeping through the stakeout, researching the rumor. A Ab* Ab* A mile, a motor, a mattress, a memory A First you were embarassed, but how could you not be, E Eb Eb Tangled in teenage, her mom at the movies, E Your voice ran out out of words, C#* F# F# B A B A It was awkward and holy. A Gospel in your belly, the ache a little lower, A Back into the breach, you spoke as it's owner. E A syndicated sermon you sang from the rafters E An Anchor in you pocket, holding down the laughter. A Tearing up your mind, your lust and your ego, A A screenshot reminder to speed your libido, E The parish grows to jelly, blissful and wasted, E C#* F#F# B A B A Your Vishnu eye slips open, them pictures of you naked

A Brother, can you spare your alms or your arrows? A Thunder clap's arising, I think that I should go E Home to the basement back on Jumel Street E 1996 and your waiting there to tell me, A I didn't die, you dreamt it, you dreamt it, A I'm as alive as your best good intentions. E Sorry that I tricked you, you had to focus E C#* F#F# B A B A Put yourself together, clear out the garbage.
