Ash

Ash Wednesday
Make a cross for the lost
On your forehead wipe the soot
When penitant followers remember a lynching
of innocence
Yeah, we're fasting now
But only until April
Somewhat akin to Ramadan
Some give up meat
But only until sundown
and when the sun implodes in all the light from the weary sky

It's I and me
and we make designs from stars
In clouds I see
all strange faces in the sky
And we agree
All the heavens truly are
amazing
Your design from I and me
Aye aye aye aye

Ashes, ashes
We all fall down
Dust to dust
The body withers
Human rust
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want my isolation shattered by your trust
And my time is coming
It's my coffin cradle
It's my line within your frame
So take out your film strip
Locate my place and name
Locate my space insane
It's yours, you made it,
I think I love it


It's I and me
and we make designs from stars
In clouds I see
all strange faces in the sky
And we agree
All the heavens truly are
amazing
Your design from I and me


I'm inside your picture
A snapshot delivered
Catch me, catch me
Oh, catch me just once
Only this way
Today

It's I and me
and we make designs from stars
In clouds I see
all strange faces in the sky
And we agree
All the heavens truly are
amazing
Your design from I and me

....I see strange faces in the sky
