Lady of the ark I think I found a part
I think I found a piece of what you used to be
Dozing in the back of a funeral car
And tangled in the blankets of your memories

Oh why, why did I waste you
If I'd have felt that love come the fall
I couldn't save you
Plunging to the earth the sweetest cannonball

Oh why, why did I know you
How did I know you would go in the end
The light of the sky you told me
"Baby I'll be gone but when I'm back again we'll try"

Try
Try
Try

Lady of the ark I think you were the start
I think you were the key with which his heart was closed
Not his only secret, not his only weakness
I found him at the party feeling through her clothes
And he cried, cried, "I'm wasted"
And he could look you straight in the mouth
But all that time he'd take it
Even though he didn't watch the words come out

Oh why, why did you leave me
Why did you think it would rip me apart
When we were always bleeding
In with (?) spirit when the soul departs the mind

Mind
Mind
Mind

And I can see your face now
Tripping sick with your ear to the wall
You can find the way down my lady
My lady
Till you fall

So fall
Fall

Well strange part of the woman
She can't see it coming
Bats her eyes at everybody one by one
And though she's moving faster still he's blowing past her
Naked with his eye toward the morning sun

But you're wild
Wild I've seen it
And he left you sick when you loved him the most
So now you're done, defeated
Torn between the devil and the holy ghost

Swing low, low sweet heathen
Swing for the wretch and the rock and roll kid
Roam this earth repeat it
All this sin until this wicked world makes sense

In time
Time
Time
Time
