lyrics

Looking like a song in a dress, halo coming down from a street light
Begging for the city's caress, meet me at a quarter to midnight
We're gonna throw away the goods and the evils and let the apathetic awake
In the shadows of the neon cathedrals, Im gonna let you tie me up on a stake

Come on make me feel it, you got my whole heart burning in effigy
Come on give me one good look, let me cry my eyes in
Come on make me feel it, and may the flames pass over the best of me
Come on let the ash pile up and tomorrow begin

Listen to the clock tick, feeling like a heretic, living all my life in a straight line
I hear the picture in the polished glass talkin to me, now I turn the other cheek for the last time
and maybe one day they're gonna share my name with the members of the congregation
'Cause when the wind picks up we're gonna go for a ride, scattered to the edge of creation

May the ropes we burn here never be replaced
May we cast ourselves into the flow of grace

Come on make me feel it

Come on make me feel it, you got my whole heart burning in effigy
Come on give me one good look, let me cry my eyes in
Come on make me feel it, and may the flames pass over the best of me
Come on let the ash pile up and tomorrow begin

Come on make me feel it
Come on make me feel it
