relapsed catholic lights another candle
to a so-so saint, his date is on the mantle
it's a feast day
feast day

German pipes play ancient holy tunes
while I dream green and golden in the pews
of stained glass demons writhing at my feet
and marble Christs which drown beneath the sea
of time that spins like sand between your toes
where no one mourns the sun when it explodes

but awake, ye drunkards, and weep
for the Lord has witnessed your sleep

German pipes play ancient holy tunes
while I dream green and golden in the pews
of curses carved in branches of the trees
and trash that swims in rain along the street
of endless escalators towards the clouds
where virgin girls scream holy fire out loud

but awake, ye drunkards, and weep
for the Lord has witnessed your sleep
