about

The desire for faith.

lyrics

I could be mistaken, trying to be human.
I could wear their clothes and speak their language.
But still with all my effort, I just can't escape it.
Whenever I hear my voice I hear an animal.

Face to the sky, I raise my arms up.
Look at my limbs; they’re long and jointed, encrusted in an animal.
But I am not an animal.
Face to the sky, I am divided.
Look at my limbs; they’re long and hairy. They look just like an animal’s.
But I am not an animal.

I will call you father. I will call you sister.
Banging on the wall of a glass cage.
I will quit my day-job and then I’ll build a church
carved into a mountain. Then watch it crumble.
I saw through your stained glass. I saw your silhouette;
A marionette with broken strings.

Face to the sky, I raise my arms up.
Look at my limbs; they’re long and jointed, encrusted in an animal.
But I am not an animal.
Face to the sky, I am divided.
Look at my limbs; they’re long and hairy. They look just like an animal’s.
But I am not an animal.

Say a prayer, the light disease.
It takes a toll with every breeze and hanging from the highest trees,
I look just like an animal, But I am not an animal.
