Bring us all in
All of us in
Bring us all in
All of us in

Stumbling’ drunk through the streets
a generation prophetic in its verse
With minds that are staggeringly free
Drowning in the emptiness of words

Exposing their bodies like pagan temples
For strangers to enter in and worship for the night
Fleeing at the sight of morning’s light

Bring us all in
All of us in
Bring us all in
All of us in

Lying restless in their beds
And burning down the wick of raw desire
Praying prayers that are cold as a tomb
And burning with the pentecostal fire

Binging and purging on joy and sadness
Peering long and hard into the mirror of the past
Believing what has been is what will last

Bring us all in
All of us in
Bring us all in
All of us in

I live in the middle of an ocean
In the middle of an island
And I’ve never seen the ocean
All I’ve ever known is dry land
It’s strange to be so busy when you know that you are dying’

A friend of mine once told me
Love follows devotion
And it’s hit me rather strangely
But I’ve entertained the notion
Maybe I’m empty of love ‘cause I’m hopelessly devoted
To proving the hypothesis there never was an ocean

But the closer that you draw to the salty ocean air
You can hear the words carried on the wind
Like a fragment of melody from a long forgotten hymn

Bring us all in
All of us in
