Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

I just want to be inside of you


you brought color to the factory
you brought noise to the afterlife
you brought hands made in mystery
we all bought into the sacrifice

we brought moses to the promised land
we brought jesus to the new world
we brought mohammed to the playground
man, we almost forgot to bring the girls

light a sparkler, light a candle, light some incense
paint your body and dance by the river tonight
paint your body and i will paint my body too
i just want to be inside of you

you gave your ear to the running water
you gave your eyes to the shining sea
you gave your lips to the ambassador
you gave your hips to my country tis of thee

you stopped to listen to the crazy girl
she was hoping to make a score
all you did was let the light in
people yelled at you just like in a war

light a sparkler, light a candle, light some incense
paint your body and dance by the river tonight
paint your body and i will paint my body too
i just want to be inside of you

we're all walking away from the plugs
we're all laughing without batteries
we're just this close to shutting it down
i wish that you could run on flattery

you brought color to the factory
you brought noise to the afterlife
you brought hands made in mystery
we all bought into the sacrifice

we brought moses to the promised land
we brought jesus to the new world
we brought mohammed to the company
man, we almost forgot to bring the girls

light a sparkler, light a candle, light some incense
paint your body and dance by the river tonight
paint your body and i will paint my body too
i just want to be inside of you
