Bow Down Here

lyrics

I want to belong where you belong,
you upright, commendable servants of God
but I have to wait, where fear turns to hate
in a grey, purgatorial, semi-fugue state

Bow down here
Bow down here
In a moment you'll be whole

I don't belong where you belong
you facile, irreverent, bibulous throng
You cast me out, as you cast about
for cheap stimuli and reasonable doubt

Bow down here (Tell me the last of your secrets)
Bow down here (Strip yourself down to your bones)
Bow down here (Tell Him what He already knows)
In a moment you'll be whole

Come one, come all
Come one, come all
Cut through the netting and shake off the frost
Come one, come all
Come one, come all
You who are hungry and you who are lost
