How you going to sing a song that run
How you going to sing a song that run
From the mouth of where the singing comes,
from the mouth of where the song is sung.
Do you call a setting sun a sun rising?
Do you call a setting sun a sun rising?
How you going to get the soil in the quarry?
How you going to get the soil in the quary?
When you want to be a harvester of light,
But the soil only turns under the moon's shitty story

There may be churches burning down next year,
If I'm a city then my citizens will pass no bills along,
There may be temples of temptation to take refuge in, my dear,
If I'm a city, then my citizens will cast a vote as to
Where you pray, vs. what you're praying for,
And what you love, vs. what you bow before
And where you go beg and what you're begging for.

    General CommentThese are the CORRECT lyrics.

    How you gonna sing a song that runs?
    How you gonna sing a song that runs?
    From the mouth of where the the singing comes,
    From the mouth of where the song is sung.
    Do you call a setting sun a sun rising?
    Do you call a setting sun a sun rising?
    How you gonna get the soil and the glory,
    How you gonna get the soil and the glory,
    When you wouldn’t give your harvester a light?
    But the soil only turns under the moon. Shitty story.

    There may be churches burning down next year,
    If I'm a city then my citizens will pass no pails along.
    There may be temples of temptation to take refuge in, my dear,
    If I'm a city then my citizens will cast a vote as to:

    Where you pray vs. What you're praying for,
    And what you love vs. What you bow before.
    And where you go beg vs. What you're begging for.

    General CommentI'm sure about all but the last two lines (I don't have the cd cover with me right now)

    Where you pray vs. what you're praying for,
    And how you love vs. what you bargain for (?)
    And where people break and what you're begging for. (?)

    General Commenti think he just says "shitty story" not "shade of a shooting story"

    General Comment"When you wanted me your heart was (?)" should actually be "When you wanna be a harvester of light," I think.
