lyrics

A Prayer from Our Leaders

Some days the ocean rises
seeps in through beneath the door
a steady, building undercurrent
leaving watermarks on my office walls
soaks the Rolodex

Years upon years of personal toil, professional triumphs
Wife says I'm married to the job
While they are born anywhere, anyhow
keep dying anywhere, from anything

II: And the great world spins :II
as I feel my bones shrink

Still I know truth
I know these are amoral times
I see they've lost their way
I'll lift them to our God on High

I know truth
I know these are amoral times
I see they've lost their way
but I'll lift them to our God on High

I know truth
