I heard there's a rhythm to all living things
A time signature swinging us through our days
I'm a 13/8 scheme, I'm unique but often off beat

But down round the belt
So solid, so sure
Thumping their bibles in a perfect 4/4
Sometimes I wish my convictions were stronger in stance
Than a tempo too awkward to dance
You said hey, hey, hey
I've never been in time with the traffic or the tide
But I'm due
But I'm due

Well I'm in the back with the cynical smile
The sounds of the psalms ricocheting off the walls
I said, "How was your talk?"
She said, "It helps me comforted, connected and loved"

So I packed up my ugliness and I sank
The beast sank
We sank out the door
Down into the snowy night
And I made an angel for her

Now I know of a teacup swirling through space
But I know a monster at the bottom of a lake
I know a ghost who still balks at the thought of a treaty
In the bout of doubt versus faith

Said hey, hey, hey
Well I've never been right a whole day in my life
But I'm due

And slaying the clouds
Their carcass in flight
Are heavenly spears of sunlight

Just down the river is the one that I love
But freedom is options, and I got none
'Cause I met a girl who was soft and was white
I said, "Are you an angel?" and she stretched out a smile
I smelled her real strong and was numb for a night and was gone
Her toes curled a grip over the carved stone ledge
She said, "Stop me if you love me" and her knees start to bend
I gave a good reach, all I got was a thread
Now she's gone
'Cause snow angels melt in the morning
I said hey, hey, hey
Well I've never loved like they sing of in song
But I'm due
But I'm due
