A pastor swept away my wrongs
He put my mind at ease
He cannot do that for himself
He cannot change what he's seen
So he and I drove to the creek
And fished out some poor souls
The men who'd seen a bit too much
And couldn't keep their mouth shut
So I guess it's fair enough

I'm the fortune they never told, afraid that I won't come true
I've been copying out the charts I found and stole from you
How can anyone face a consequence they can't understand?

I had a dream that nobody could fall asleep
And it was all my fault, for all my disbelief
Some original sin that I couldn't take back
Said I was sorry, but maybe it was meant to be

And you were there telling me how ashamed you were
And suddenly I felt no more guilt

A chemist pulled me to his side
Said he loathed what he had done
Yeah, he had worked away his days
To give my God a different name
We built an orchard out of words
That had left their meanings
And since I felt their shade I've found
That everything is sickening simple
When you strip it down

I think that everybody goes home alone when the daylight dies

I'm the fortune they never told, afraid that I won't come true
I've been copying out the charts I found and stole from you
Did you know that we don't make sense when you bring us into the light?
How can anyone face a consequence, I just don't know

So I'll hide away my name 'til I finally hear the letter's breaking down
'til the consonants and vowels resemble us
