"Sinner" as written by and Neil Mullane Finn Marius De Vries....
See it anyone got my eyes got my face
Sing it everyone got my nose got my blood
Conscience plays upon me now
Safe until my luck runs out
Cukoos call, pendulum swings
I thought you knew everything
Lift my hands make the cross

Sinner I have never learned
Beginner I cannot return
Forever I must walk this earth
Like some forgotten soldier

Those things I should keep to myself
But I feel somehow strangely compelled
Under moonlight I stood wild and naked
Felt no shame just my spirit awakened

Sinner got my eyes got my face
Fireball drop from the sky
All my dreams have come to pass
Where's my faith is it lost
Can't see it 'til you cast it off

Sinner there is no such thing
Beginner I have learned to sing
Forever I must walk this earth
Like some forgotten soldier

Today I am still disconnected
To the face that I saw in the clouds
And the closest I get to contentment
Is when all of the barriers come down

    General CommentI read that (at least in part) it's about Neil as a little kid streaking in his backyard. Though that could have been him playing silly buggers with the journalist.

    General CommentNeil has never been shy to confess his 'status' as a lapsed Catholic. This must be about that. Talking about 'make the cross' and the like. I love the paradox where he speaks of instead of getting contentment from religion, he gets it from the release of inhibition and free-expresison, which is what music so capably achieves.
