lyrics

black clouds swim into the domed city
they won't disappear but i guess they seem pretty
in the darkness, shots are ringing out,
i peek out from blinds and see hands go up, bodies fall down

these are the times we try to see jesus in a slice of toast
angels in curtain folds at a funeral
and i cannot think of a time when i've stopped waiting for a sign
that i am okay, you are okay, everything will be fine

seeking solace in a soulless place
i can only hide for so long before coming face to face
with the tragic circumstance of a system built on blood
even though my hands are red, i'll never let them cut off my tongue

these are the times we try to see jesus in a slice of toast
angels in curtain folds at a funeral
and i cannot think of a time when i've stopped waiting for a sign
that i am okay, you are okay, everything will be fine
