All of the people All of those ordinary lives Building on the outskirts Of my mind They ride the Iron Pilgrim To holidays for the head If plans were hand grenades We'd all be dead
It's dark It's dark where the roses grow There's something that you should know Before you see the light It's dark It's dark where the roses grow There's places I have to go Before I see the light
Playing all five stages The festival of grief God and problems What can stop them realise The bottles in the drug store Were all just piss and ink The flags you wore Are rags under the sink

The lyrics for "Mary, Did You Know?" were written by Christian singer and comedian Mark Lowry, after his pastor asked him to write a Christmas musical for their church. Southern gospel musician Buddy Greene later added music to his words.
