lyrics

galachiel stood on the bell tower
lifted his face and closed his eyes
he took his little brass pen from his breast pocked
licked the tip and peered down

he saw a hard grey crust
with a fungus crutch
that oozed blood and pus and smoke
and then another

and he couldn’t see clearly
through the atmosphere
he felt the terror eat his every pore

and he saw many a thing
like a gold ring
like a jealousy fit
from the pit
that was drawn downstairs

downstairs
that was dreamed up by men
with a plan
a big plan
a small big plan without words
and galachiel spoke

father father can you hear me

i don’t know what i’m to do
i can’t tell what i am feeling
i broke my eyes
my eyes are glue

can you kill it with

can you kill it with fire
can you smite it down
i kiss to make it better
a flood to make it drown
and start over

father father please forgive me
i don’t hold my neighbours dear
i’ve been lurking ‘round the corner
waiting for your ship to sail

hey
were you invited to the great unveiling
they said he’ll bring his son
i’ll bring my ticket

and a book with my whole life story
and a sermon to sing
until his doubts are gone

while your guilt eats you from the inside
so you hide
and you disguise
your jealousy as neighbourly love
well, tough
cause i cannot believe it’s all made up by men
fuck that
there’s a plan
he am

well, he will kill you with fire
he will smite you down

he will throw you down
down to the ground
to a prison of your own design
made from all the hears you still decide to break

it’s a long and lonesome fall
god have mercy on you all
may it trickle down forever

cause i won’t be on your side

i can feel it in my bones
and i feel it in my fingers
and i hear the wings descending
and i see it
