Jesus wrote a blank check
One I haven't cashed quite yet.
I hope I've got a little more time.
I hope it's not the end of the line.
Yeah Jesus wrote a blank check.
One I haven't cashed yet all right.
But if I had to choose a number
I'd want it to be number one.
I don't want to be number two.
Yeah I don't want to be number four.
But I can hear a knock on the door.
Jesus wrote a blank check, all right.
If Jesus saw me dying,
Would angels come a flying down?
I hope I've got a little more time.
I hope somebody lends me a dime.
Now, Jesus wrote a blank check.
Ah, one I haven't cashed yet.
Still I build my towers high.
I watch them pierce the blue, blue sky.
Still I wallow in the mire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I build my towers high.
I watch them pierce the blue, blue sky.
Still I wallow in the mire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.
Still I burn this earthen fire.

    General CommentYeah, I'm pretty sure it means that despite the fact that Jesus offers him salvation for so precious little, all he concentrates on is earthly things like material possessions, hence
    "Still I build my towers high"
    and
    "Still I burn this earthen fire"


    I'm never 100% sure on Cake lyrics, though. =D
