lyrics

The beds are stripped and cold
The kitchen table bare and old
And thinning linens roll between
The crashing waves of the machine

The sun scratches at the clouds
The light barely bleeding out
Dull bells sound a call to pray
But she will keep away

The sacramental charms she wore
Abandoned on the bathroom floor
The decades of shadowplay
So easily they fall away

She says,
“Let everyone else be fed
On yesterday’s daily bread
I’ll feast on what I see
The fruit of the mystery”

I’ve lived too long for hunger
Now I will starve no longer
This harvest I will plunder
Take my fill of life and never want for wonder

We pay the price to live a life
I wither where I used to thrive
But time is marching on my door
So I won’t listen any more

Enough of that neurotic rage
That stumbles drunken from the page
Delivered in sombre tones
By men that love has never known

I’ve lived too long for hunger
Now I will starve no longer
This harvest I will plunder
Take my fill of life and never want for wonder

The beads on my rosary
Worn down with piety
The truth that they kept from me
The fruit of the mystery
