lyrics

Begin on a day of mourning
When the shops are all closed
And there’s no one on the street
And the people are all standing in line
For the false miracles
I never thought I’d see you
Standing there
Waiting for the body
And the blood to sublime

There’s Jesus in the corner
Turning blood into wine
But me I’m lucky
If I can turn it into iodine

Everybody out there
Is looking for some way
To live through their mistakes
When every girl wants to be Norma Jean
Without the pills
And every boy wants to be James Dean
With the crash on the highway
Well I guess you went your way
And I’m going mine
But I’m looking for my big mistakes
While there’s still time

There’s Jesus in the corner
Turning blood into wine
But me I’m lucky
If I can turn it into iodine
