My tired feet
My tired, tried feet
My tired feet
Oh my tired feet
My tired feet brought me to that red boat
So still and foreign waters

And although I've never been here
Although I've never been here
I know that here I've swam before
Here I've swam before

And soon I came
Oh so soon I came
Soon I came
Oh so soon I came
Soon I came to the silent place of choir voices

In excelsis Deo

Where Jesus, he keeps the streets out
Jesus he keeps the heat out
Jesus he keeps the noise out
And here oh here I've sung before
Here I've sung before
I know that here I've sung before

Here I've sat, I've run, I've walked, I've cried
I've died
I've slept in till noon and I've laughed and I've sighed
I know that here I've sung before
Oh here I've before
I know that here I've sung before
Here I've sung before

    General Commenti read that the songs for this album were written on a trip to Europe, and i think this is one of the few where that is really obvious. Literally she was walking around and felt this sense of deja vu, went by a cathedral, and realized that she had lived a previous life, or many lives, right there. To me this song is about wearing oneself out in a nihilistic mindset and then coming upon the realization that there is more out there. I don't mean more in the religious sense. I mean, she realizes at a cathedral that she has been reincarnated for heaven's sake; she isn't talking about any specific religion. it's a beautiful song that to me encapsulates that moment when the world makes sense to a person, when their find their purpose, or realize how they are a small part of something bigger.
