lyrics

Charlie I’ve been sleeping by the river
I’m sure you know the place
It’s lovely under the stars, man
If you want to stay up that late

Charlie man I got to tell you
That I just don’t know what it is
Why being holy feels so wicked
When you don’t know what holy is

I mean I’ve been reading all of these hymnals
Since Basil taught me how to read
They call him fool but man I’ll tell you
They don’t know a goddamn thing

But yeah I sing like I’m supposed to
They put the tenors in the back
And I’m getting good at the piano
It was Paul who taught me that

I think it all started with that lady
Bathing naked in the dark
And when everyone had passed out
Out into the pitch I’d walk

And every night for months I loved her
Until her flesh became my own
Against her body in the water
Her dripping hips so white and cold

And Charlie, man I’ve always liked you
That’s why I’ll tell you this and more
Of Babel’s bitches and the man who
Went and crucified our Lord

Did you hear they flipped poor Peter Over?
Until the blood ran out his ears?
How could you die for your father?
If dying only leads to tears?

If you’d like to come down to the river
You can meet my girl tonight
She’s sweet to any swimmer
Or any boy who’s seen the light
