lyrics

I threw a line in the deep, murky water.
I threw a stone at the hive hung in the tree
But I had one chance to wade out in the water
'Cause I never had known if the water alone
Could cover me

I found a box of birds on the subway
Carried them up to let them fly free
But there were four eyes and three wings on the subway
I think one bird survived; well I guess they both died
Eventually

A soul white as wool takes some time to acquire
'Cause sometimes the body runs out of desire
And sometimes the winter reminds you of fire
But sometimes the body runs out of desire

I sat alone and I talked to Jesus
He didn't have scars on his feet or on his side
And he said, "Hey kid, I didn't ask to be Jesus"
So I looked at his hands and he laughed at my plans
Of deicide

A soul white as wool takes some time to acquire
'Cause sometimes the body runs out of desire
And sometimes the winter reminds you of fire
But sometimes the body runs out of desire

Sometimes the body runs out of desire
Sometimes the body runs out of desire
Sometimes the body runs out of desire
Sometimes the body runs out of desire
