Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

sunglasses in heaven

where did the thing come from
where did it begin
what is it made of
what do i win

they came to be, then came to me
they sang about jesus
how he will set me free
but what was jesus made of
where did his story begin
why did we need saving
who invented sin

god is awful silent
but she sings in the wind
he is a mystery
took the earth for a spin
gave us the seasons
gave us the night
we invented sunglasses
after god invented light
after god invented light
he ran naked in the dark night
she ran naked in the dark night
that's right
that's right

you want a body for labor
you want a soul for heaven
you want a god to save your ass
when you run out of sevens
well, listen up, jimmy
and listen good
it ain't quite what it seems
the waters start in snow and ice
and run to New Orleans
the water runs to New Orleans


god is awful silent
but she sings in the wind
he is a mystery
took the earth for a spin
gave us the seasons
gave us the night
we invented sunglasses
after god invented light
after god invented light
he ran naked in the dark night
she ran naked in the dark night
that's right
that's right


where did the thing come from
where did it begin
what is it made of
what do i win

One of your best ever. The band needs some new tunes to go with this stuff. . .
