Bible Song

Album: Real Fine Place (2005)
  • No stranger in this town
    Nobody moves without making a sound
    You live and die within the borders and lines
    No one dies without paying their fines

    No lovers in this town
    The moon's full but it sure ain't round
    And just because you lie in his bed
    Don't mean he meant the things he said

    They marry young in these parts
    They work the factories
    So I ran as fast as I could
    Through the tall grass and the midnight woods
    So no one would sing some bible song over me

    My cousin died in his sleep
    Forty pills, two kids to keep
    And how will she explain to those kids
    About the sorry thing daddy did

    They marry young in these parts
    They raise their kids and set them free
    So I ran as fast as I could
    Through the tall grass and the midnight woods
    So no one would sing some bible song over me

    They buried him out in the cold
    He was only twenty-four years old
    How his mother came undone
    When the choir sang hallelujah

    I ran as fast as I could
    Through the tall grass and the midnight woods
    I ran as fast as I could
    Through the tall grass and the midnight woods
    Hallelujah Hallelujah - ahh
    Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
    Hallelujah hallelujah
    Hallelujah

  • Raymond from Sydney , AustraliaHate the bible, blame God? No, hate the people who claim they know the bible but do not.
    A truth half-realised is a damn good lie.
    People die because we prefer masochistic lust and wild swine sexual wildness. Answers? Find me.
