Jesus told me to leave gravity behind
and He said to burn the stars out of my eyes
He said dissolve into asphalt and white lines
and give them nothing they can turn into a lie
Jesus said there was no home I was welcome in to;
just sad lonely places where I'll pay and pay
Jesus gave me this motel television
to burn all my hopes and dreams clean away

And He said, "drive a thousand miles
drive another thousand miles
'cause you - you have no other home"

Jesus gave me a spoonful of sugar
yeah, and a million saints who pray and pray
for a silence that rings like a hammer
all for the likes of you and me to go away

And He said, "drive a thousand miles
drive another thousand miles
'cause you - you have no other home.
You - you have no other home."

Now Jesus told me to leave gravity behind
and He said to burn the stars out of my eyes
and He said give 'em nothing they can turn into a lie
and give 'em nothing they can turn into a lie
give 'em nothing
