lyrics

If I put in my time as a servant
I know that there will be
Something lovely and fine at the end of the line
Of this train barreling straight into me

With it's daily grinding oh it's motion
Raging ceaselessly
An impossible speed all we humans must heed
Causeless force reigning in over these earthly boundaries
But rise up and bow down and hold out

I want something prettier with honor It's in you
But I've got something awful in me too
Oh won't you purge it out purge it out

Oh a terrible era upon us
Sprit's famine at the peak
And though I am impure all the teachings endure
Little apertures shining their lights right at me

And I'm trying my best to be patient
And to ease these hurried breaths
Which quaver and shake every prayer awakening
All of the horrors I've endured
Only waiting for an ending to this war
Between mind and body like rival ant colonies
Raging through land and through sky

I want something prettier with honor
I wanna have it I don't have it give me
Something get under my skin and deliver me
Oh purge it out evils out
