Big, Warm, Sweet, Interior Glowing Lyrics

He will always trust his own vision
Could be a dangerous man
He's guided by no one
Attracted to the sound
Of the interior voices
He will not listen hard enough
To any other man

Chorus:
He gets a big warm sweet interior glowing
He gets a grand elitist superior knowing
This convinces us he's infallible - yeah

By sheer force of will
He leaves a deep impression
Self-confidence persuades us that he is a saint
Then we watch him tear apart another city
Turns it to dust and ash
A mighty nation's falling

(Chorus)

He downs another coffee
And the feeling grows
He's building monuments so high
In his expanding mind
He eats a six course dinner
And hears the voice of the spirit
This voice says
Well done my very good and faithful servant

(Chorus)

FatherExplains Lyrics

His bare feet are calloused, he hikes up his pants
His mother says Son you're too young for the ranks
We need food for our family not airplanes and tanks
And that's where the moneys all gone

Eight brothers and sisters, but three of them died
Caught out in the marketplace with nowhere to hide
The boy thinks God may be over on the devil's side
Where the line in the sand has been drawn

Father's screaming now Somebody put out the light
If God wills it now we'll be in heaven tonight
(Oh yeah) The bombs came down like steel rain
(Oh yeah) Hit the ground like steel rain
(Oh yeah) Nothing sounds like steel rain
It's our lot in life, son his father explains

When the total of life has been suffering and hate
Death on the doorsteps and endless debate
Then God only knows how much blood it will take
Before someone makes right all the wrong

So bitter and hardened, too old for his age
The boy screams his madness, succumbs to his rage
Now he's just another death on the bottom of the page
And that's how the story goes on

Father's screaming now Somebody put out the light
If God wills it now we'll be in heaven tonight
(Oh yeah) The bombs came down like steel rain
(Oh yeah) Scarred the ground like steel rain
(Oh yeah) Nothing sounds like steel rain
It's our lot in life, daughter her father explains

Gate Of The World Lyrics

You saw me at the gate of the world
You washed my feet
I knew you at the gate of the world
Gave you something to eat
The gentle waves washed over us
Now here we are
Leaning on our shepherd's staff
And following a star
We would have missed us if we hadn't come this far
I'll love you at the gate of the world
God healed me at the gate of the world
Now I see again
You were lonely at the gate of the world
I am your friend
The pulse of this great dying earth
Is in our ears
And the wrong we've done
The wars we've fought
Bring on the tears
But we'll hold fast the faith and hope
That brought us here
Left us at the gate of the world
The gentle waves washed over us
Now here we are
Leaning on our shepherd's staff
And following a star
We would have missed us if we hadn't come this far
I'll love you at the gate of the world
I dreamt of nations at the gate of the world
Laying down their guns
And peace fell at the gate of the world
On everyone
And high upon a thousand hills
The angels sang
And understanding filled the heart of every man
They knew that they would never pass this way again
We're passing through the gate of the world

Gloryhound Lyrics

Bombs and money, and a death wish
I don't need your inspiration, I love you honey
But you're bound to vanish, in some fiery desperation

Slide down, you're sliding down a flagpole
To the devil in hell, Some kinda' gloryhound
Who loves those demagogue hucksters, and their wishing wells

I'm seein' blood red letters, on black armbands
I won't hide from the mobs derision
Feeding hollow point bullets, to a hungry man
You got him prayin' for the cataclysm, another gloryhound

You smuggle guns and bibles in a satellite dish
Can't stop you at the customs station
Beware the full metal hook inside the miracle fish
A neo-gospel for the hungry nations

Strap down, secure the weekend warrior
To his T.V. seat, some kinda' gloryhound
A flack jacket yuppie in a camouflage jeep
He's a gloryhound, he's a gloryhound

I Will Return Lyrics

And the city stood
In a glowing splendor
'Til her ashes were laid in an urn
Beneath a fast food counter

I will return

The descendants were born
And they danced their dances
Then the sound of their stumbling was great
Tilting the world on it's axis

I will return

And the women gazed in their mirrors
Suitors brought them vials of perfume(Quiet lives of desperation)
Then golden-haired locusts with the faces of angels
Sealed each of them up in a metal cocoon

And the life ran out
Just when it all seemed better
Here is a display in a granite museum
A shame on view forever

I will return, I will return

And the birdcage was eventually opened
A great flock of nuns flew away (Meeting no one's expectations)
And the saints who had slept on a head of a pin
Came down from the sky at the end of all days

And the city stood
In a glowing splendor
'Til her ashes were laid in an urn
Beneath a fast food counter

I will return (I will be coming like a thief in the night)
I will return (I will be coming like a thief in the night)...

Kalhun Lyrics

It's the magic word they claim, came down from ancient Babylon
When the tower of Babel crumbled, and the language was all wrong
The natives were confused and yet, they understood one word
Now it's on display in a mall museum, down in south Pittsburgh

Kalhoun!, everybody cry Kalhoun!

Some preacher says it's the first word, that Adam said to Eve
Religious tracts and bulletins note, Speak it and believe
Some say it's just deception, empty and absurd
While the elect say the last times, were triggered by the word

Kalhoun!, yeah everybody sing Kalhoun!
Don't know exactly what it means
It's just a sacred kinda thing - Kalhoun!

Now when carpenters hit their thumbs
They'll yell out loud the Kalhoun! curse
And the faithful flock to pa, to bow to Lord Kalhoun the first
He says Messiah's in the dessert, but a few of us won't go
We're going down to the Kalhoun church, to pray it isn't so

Kalhoun!, is the thing - now everybody sing Kalhoun!
And even the president says it's a miracle
Kalhoun the nation cries, You're a miracle
On baseball cards, beer, and cars and cereal
Kalhoun is the word, now everybody's heard - Kalhoun!

Some politician has an idea to take a million men
Go downtown Los Angeles and build the tower again
Why nothing can stop us this time, we'll mount the word on high
Spell K-A-L-H-O-U-N across the steel grey sky

Kalhoun!, now everybody sing Kalhoun!
Don't know exactly what it means
It's just a sacred kind of thing - Kalhoun!

Kalhoun! Kalhoun! ...

Note to Anna Lyrics

Ring it under
Deep waters
Clue to the crime
Nobody saved you

I'm lost on
Dark bridges
I missed the signs
I could not reach you
I could not hear you at all

And through the rain
I thought I saw you
But you were gone
What have you done?
I write I love you
Too late to tell you
Too late to hold you

Deep cover
Black forest
Your last confession
I could not save you

Two bloodstains
Dark photo
Sun-washed directions
Nobody saved you
I could not save you
Oh how I loved you

Anna, Anna, Anna, Anna

Prayer Wheel Lyrics

Oh, oh, oh
These are the fasting days
Gonna' break our will
Let Christ out of the money box
Let our hearts be still
We'll crawl on our bellies now
And make a wound to heal
Dry blood on the potter's soil is our holy meal

Chorus:
Take a page, print your name
Tack it to the prayer wheel
Spin it 'til it makes the sound
Of a thousand voices crying
Every name that's on the prayer wheel
Lamentations up to heaven
Make some small enough to wear
Around our wrists, reminders there
Of the promises we made

These are the gathering days
Of clouds and pages
There are icons on the subway walls
Prophets and sages
The wheel will stand upon a mound of dust and ashes
Our backs are pinned against the wall of thorns and lashes

(Chorus)

Now these are the numbered days
The final stages
We live in caves upon the mountain called
The Rock of Ages
And there will be no signs
Like statues with the bleeding hands
Just a fire burning in the soul of every man

(Chorus)

These are the promises we made, etc.

Tracking the Amorous Man Lyrics

There's Eleanor by the pool
Red fingernails tapping a file
She's tracking the amorous man, in style

Half shell on the ears
Etiquette plucks a brow
She's ready with the mercury tear and towel

And the Lord of Hosts is breathing on the window
His foggy tethered ghost
He's tracking the amorous man

Red line on the map
Focus on the mutual prey
Anthony crosses state lines on holiday

Out on the funeral sea
The lovers love and drown
The white whale of the world takes them down

Far above their heads
The tongue of flame is stuttering
And virtue goes to bed
The death of the amorous man

Virgin Falls Lyrics

God and Goddess on a silver screen
Archetype lovers in a perfect dream
We love'em, we leave'em forever clean
Then a dirty little secret spoils everything

Chorus:
Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall

Saint at the alter on a T.V. set
He's walkin' on water and he don't get wet
The idolaters say that he's the holiest yet
He calls his mistress Venus
Says she's teacher's perfect pet, gotta let...

(Chorus)

He was the leader of the people in the land of the free
A myth we kept deep frozen in a tragedy
But now we know he never was much of a deity
And believing in him is harder than it used to be

She tried hard to hold on, be his sweet expectation
Then she became herself, it killed the whole relation

(Chorus)

Father's dark desires and mother's drastic lies
The kids don't really talk to them or look them in the eyes
Behind the graven images in the back of their disguise
They are the fallen architects of a failing enterprise

Chorus:
