Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Jesus in the Diamond Mine



what was the message
how was it lost
we bought all the weapons
never mind the cost

what was the promise
and how do we know
everybody's nervous
but it's on with the show

diamonds don't make it to heaven
laughter don't make it to hell
we got lost at the border
and fell in the well
in the well of water
we fell...all fall down

pretty sure i'm an outlaw
pretty sure you are one too
we'll ride to our freedom
we'll ride to our doom
boom, boom

you know that you're just fine
you know that you're god
your fear and your sorrow
your trembling rod
go boom-boom

diamonds don't make it to heaven
laughter don't make it to hell
we got lost at the border
and fell in the well
in the well of water
we fell...all fall down

jesus is off on location
starring in a difficult show
lights and camera and warnings
when they yell "cut" you know
you just know

love your enemies
turn that cheek for more
what you do to the least of them
you don't do anymore

diamonds don't make it to heaven
laughter don't make it to hell
we got lost at the border
and fell in the well
in the well of water
we fell...all fall down

falling down
