Stationery, the things we carried A little gospel of some visionary Between the pages, into the folds We wrote it all down in red and in gold Those were the days, I know I found the petals inside of the letter How these small things they make me feel better I held up your cursive to see if it’s still there I held up pages like some kind of seer All is there, in letters Why do you love me? I know I don’t make it so easy The garden was better without me Why do you love me? When I make it so very easy To burn down this house that we’re building Just open the letters you sent me Why do you love at all? Wrote about death, about the weather We made it all up to make us feel better Hold your tongue, our hands together You waited for hours and then it was over All gets said then buried Why do you love me? I know I don’t make it so easy The garden was better without me Why do you love me? When I make it so very easy To burn down this house that we’re building Just open the letters you sent me Why do you love at all? The story’s beginning is the same as the ending Tried to sort it without any meaning But your face in that light (that light was fading) I’d like to stay here the landscape keeps changing Now once again with some feeling Why do you love me? I know I don’t make it so easy The garden was better without me Why do you love me? When I make it so very easy To burn down this house that we’re building Just open the letters you sent me Why do you love at all?

I would like to end all this darkness All the time my mind, it is filled with it But I am a child of light and not death I am a Son of God Hear this! Hear this! All the voices that you hear here Liars, liars, liars everywhere, everywhere But I speak the Words of Truth, they are like fire Write them on your hands, they are the right words The right words I want you to know that I am Christian Always will be, always have been Tongues of fire are seen above my head Choirs upon choirs They hear this Hear this! Who really believes you can have it both ways Better to say what we mean Better mean what we say

There are mansions somewhere Pretty houses Women wearing blouses Women in gold Gardens within gardens Falling mountains Darjeelingesque I imagine Darjeeling, I am sure But I am this way, I am this way I’ll wear the collar while I feed you cake I am this way, I am this way I’ll wear the cassock and I'll take the name The Palisades on a Sunday On the Lord’s Day It’s “Braid of Voices” I play and play There's nowhere to go Hidden mansions somewhere Hidden houses I’ve read about all the promises But what do I know? I am this way, I am this way I’ll wear the collar while I feed you cake I am this way, I am this way I’ll wear the cassock and I'll take the name

Smile for the camera, smile if you can Give us a smile then again and again In Middle East there is blood on the sand The evening news showed the Arab’s dead hands All God’s children go to Heaven Come see the crowds, a parade in the street Hear all the sounds, all the sights, the living There was a man that they hung from a tree They watched in the dark as he swung in the breeze Swing low, sweet chariot Sing something lovely, sing something we’ve heard Tell us how we shall inherit the Earth Fire came from heaven, devoured them all Stretched out before us, a great lake of fire Swing low, sweet chariot Smile for the camera, smile if you can

Is this the end, is this oblivion? When in our hands, chrysanthemums for it's a sign of what's to come The Great Divide, The Great Undone Here I am standing at this door with the weight of the world all gone to war I carry it around if you can tell it is an art and I do it well Don’t you turn around to see this It breaks the heart in pieces No more moving speeches We have to set this before our eyes carve it into our hearts with knives "A third of all those, those with him fell" I wrote it down, underlined it well No, we have to set this before our eyes carve it into our hearts with knives ”if they hated me, they will hate you” Say it with me, with words like Camus Don’t you turn around to see this It breaks the heart in pieces Don’t you turn around to see this No more moving speeches
