I like when all the lights turn green on 2'nd Avenue,
So I can get downtown in one shot.
I park across the street and try to find a seat,
I do it 'cause that's how I look for God.

Let it be known, let it be know
That I've been always blessed,
I have been blessed by song,
By song I have been blessed.

I wish that could spend all the money in the world
To change every broken string,
Although, in their wake, I see they had to break,
Somewhere in the scheme of things.

Do I put on my disguise? Do I laugh, or do I cry?
Do I try to run and hide and to leave it all behind
For the horrors of the world, for the silence of the soul,
For the unforgiving chance,
For the things that make no sense?

And I will always pray for those with talent for the truth,
For those who are judged and sacrificed,
For they are only saved when they are in their grave,
From which they always rise.
