lyrics

I don't want another flood
But I don't blame you for the first
To drown the noise of Abel's blood
And quench at last a holy thirst

But when you turn the other cheek
A lesser god would call it weak
You dig your nails in barren land
And make me out of dust again

Can a dead man live?
Gather flesh around these bones of his?
Can a dead man rise?
Carry fire inside his sunken eyes?

I don't want another flood
No rivers of divine regret
But could I have a little mud?
A little spit to get it wet?

Draw my picture in the dirt
Let me point to where it hurts
Take me in your weathered hands
And make me out of dust again
