Well it's hope, it's hope, that has me staring to the burning sky
I know, I know, there's something hidden, on the other side
I woke, I woke with such a feeling I could never rise
Now I'm gazing skyward till the sun just burned me blind

Burned me blind, burned me blind
Burned me blind, burned me blind

Well, one drank up the holy water hoping for a light
While another slipped a sewing bodkin right inside his eye
And they ran out from the city calling, collecting salts and lye
Crack and crush it, burn it maybe baby, find the God inside

God inside, God inside, yeah
God inside, God inside

We know there's something to which we're blind
'Cause it's hope that pulls us forward till we die

Ollie ollie oxen free, come out from where you hide
Tell me, tell me what you want from me, I promise I'll provide
I'll drink your poison, keep you company, serve you till I die
Come on, crack Pandora's Box for me, blind me with the light

With the light, with the light, come on
With the light, with the light

Learn the language of our Holy Fathers, retrace their sacred rites
Plot and chart the arc of Halley's Comet floating through the night
I drain my blood until my chalky body feels closer to the sky
I dance upon the edge of death just to prove that I'm alive

I'm alive, I'm alive, yeah
I'm alive, I'm alive

We know there's something to which we're blind
'Cause it's hope that pulls us forward till we die
