I'm standing inside a silver room A sound inside my head like a sonic boom A preacher with a dagger purple and black Is tearing sacred pictures On my naked back Hey preacher, and he smiles in return I think you wanna see me burn You're squeezing out my blood Please tell me why But he proceeded to break down and cry chorus: Oh does anyone know the answer Tell me Lord, does anyone know the answer I'm floating beyond a cosmic dream A feeling in my throat makes me wanna scream A lover who has no love to spare Is ripping out the roots of my leather hair Hey lover, and she made a drunken face Well put yourself in my place Please tell me why you wanna see me hurt at all But she proceeded to break down and bawl chorus: Oh please does someone know the answer Oh does anybody know the answer out of chorus to solo:

Well I'm old I'm tired and cold I'm dripping like a rainy day I'm searching for a being who's seen what I've seen And I know I'll find him someday I know I'll find him someday I know I'll find him someday lead change up:
