I wish I had more to say; it's such a quiet room
But today I can't give voice to anything but doubt
It starts down deep inside me - in my blood and in each cell
and it makes its way to the blank look in my eyes, the questions on my lips

I wish I had less to say; it's such a crowded room
But the sun came up this morning, and it all began again
The compulsion is inside me - and it beats against my doors
Seeps into my sterile, polished closets, brings the skeletons outside

And there was a time I would have covered my face, would've turned away
Would've broken my bones trying to get out the door
But here it is, come and take a (good) look, get it out of the way
Maybe it's faith when I just don't know for sure

I wish I had a thousand books to fill in what I'm missing
and a thousand days to read them, and a time-back guarantee
Cause it starts down deep inside me - every breath and every fiber
and it makes its way up to my empty stare, and the tears on my face

But I wish I'd never read a word; the answers were too easy
And I'm grown enough to know that there's more mystery than proof
The longing is inside me, and it stirs the dust of faith
Cries out to my about my hollow nature, my desperate human need


And it's a little more earthy than I'd like to believe
Like the holes in God's hands, like the dirt on God's feet
But I'm not alone, and that is comfort more
Than I ever found pretending I know anything for sure
