How many time do i have to lie
Before you believe me?
And how many time do you have to beat me
Before i learn how to play?
And where are the authorities
When you need somebody blown away
And how many arrows do i have to suffer
Before i'm a martyr?
Is it true that you have to do good
Before people will
Pay for a look at your bones?
You've got to be kidding me
Does this mean that i'll never be a saint?

With my pockets full of platitudes
And my dusty crown of thorns
Yeah it's used but barely worn
And i have crawled broke and desperate
Through the dumpsters of the lord

And once i was an ugly sea
I wrestled in my sleep
And hurled foul threats and curses
At the sky
I pounded on the stubborn shore
Cause it can never be a symphony
If nobody cries

And how many bodies and how many boxes
Before it's all over?
And how many time do i have to cry
Before they wash me away?
Head i do: it's a comedy
Tails i don't: and i see another day

With my pockets full of platitudes
And my dusty crown of thorns
Yeah it's used but barely worn
And i have crawled broke and desperate
Through the dumpsters of the lord

Once i was a rusted ship
Forsaken on the rocks
A tangle of green ligament and bone
I wrangled with the sullen sea
For it can never be a tragedy
If nobody dies
