lyrics

She was on the porch
Yellin’ through the door
Said “You’re just a boy
Outnumbered in a war!”
She stared at the sun
Let it kiss her eyes
Said “There’s something more
Buried in the light”

She said “You’re running from police
In the safety of your living room
Look at your shaking knees!
What terrors have you witnessed?
You’ve unshakable belief
In bulldogs without teeth
So come down to the river and get in!”

Dreamt I was in a marathon
Drawing near the finish line
Afraid my fickle heart would boast
I slowed my winner’s pace a while

She saw me through ancient eyes
Saw in me a den of lies
Said “Is God’s heart to muzzle kings?
Boy, get up and take your things!”

She said “You’re running from police
In the safety of your living room
Look at your shaking knees!
What terrors have you witnessed?
You’ve unshakable belief
In bulldogs without teeth
So come down to the river and get in!”

Strike no holy bell
It fills up my ears with a sound so shrill

For all is full of love
Even on the edge when you cannot jump

I will jump

Again

(Yes, again)
