Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...

I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...

Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
