lyrics

She doesn’t want you to call
She doesn’t need you to stay
You’re not her angel of redemption
No matter what you have to stay

and you’ve known / and you’ve known it all along
she’s the only one who can sing this song
and they’ve got pills / and they’ve got shocks / and they’ve got power / and they’ve got locks
and they’ve got fear / and they’ve got drugs / and they’ve got doctors / and they’ve got love
but they’ve got nothing / nothing at all

and you want her to run / but she can barely walk
and you want her to find the way / but the path is long
and you want her to open up / but she can barely talk
and you want her to stay stay stay / but she’s already gone

and you’ve known / and you’ve known it all along
she’s the only one who can sing this song
and they’ve got pills/and they’ve got shocks/and they’ve got power/and they’ve got locks
and they’ve got fear/and they’ve got drugs/and they’ve got doctors/and they’ve got love
but they’ve got nothing / nothing at all

we say this prayer of resurrection
but there’s no one to take requests
we all fall short of their perfection
and has this temple been condemned?

we say this prayer of resurrection

where there is hatred / give us love
where there's despair / give us hope
where there is weakness / give us might
and from the valley / bring us heights
where there is doubt / give us faith
where there is hardship / give us grace
where there is sadness / give us joy
where there is loss / let us console
where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life

where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life
where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life
