I went down to the liquor store
And bought some more liquor
I drank myself to sleep in a starry night
Hoping that I would drown
In all the ocean’s sound
I swam into its depths with my eyes closed tight
Hoping I would see the light

Well I built a fire with both my hands
And watched it burn the land
I planted seeds in ashes
Just to see if it would grown again
Took a train to outer space
To see if I could find a place
Where I could watch the sweet sun burn the scars off my face
Hoping I would see the light

Well the rain came down without a sound
And flowers sprouted from the ground
How can I not speak of God when all I see is this mirage
We pick up guns and we kill our own
Oh this road leads so far from home
I pray to the angel of fire
To burn this mess until it dies
At the top of the hill
At the feet of the tree
I found the truth in an apple seed
Who would’ve known
That when it had grown
I could see all the stars and all the cosmos
Some say I’m sick and some call me mad
They say I’ve lost all that I’ve had
True I am mad for the light, for the spark
That resides in the deepest depths of my heart

    General CommentI went to his concert and before this song he just said a couple things that really hit me. I had it recorded so i went back and this is what he said. He is so amazing.

    "There are lots of ways that people try to, I dunno like, escape their minds right. Like get intoxicated and some people ya know use drugs, some people use alcohol. But there is also Spiritual intoxication, like God intoxication. That never goes away, its more rich and more beautiful than any other out of thinking experience and its a different kind of wine. This is a song about trying to get drunk off that wine. "
