lyrics

Your old glow
It still grows all of the time
Great Lakes, with all of your big waves
Don’t let me down
I’ve been waiting on that God machine
To come and knock us loose
Now I need some proof
Of all the pieces we’re made of
There may be no one to save us
There may be no one to claim us
Oh, Great Wave
I’ve been living in the shadow
The shadow of a city
And I think of all its people
With the houses that they keep
Because I can hear their voices howling
While they drink on holidays
Are they as happy they seem?
I’ve never seen them show their teeth
It’s important to be pleased
But to want is to be weak
I’ve been waitin’ on my God machine
To come and knock us loose
Now I need some proof
Of all the pieces we’re made of
There may be no one to save us
There may be no one to claim us
I’ve been waiting on that God machine
To come and knock us loose
Now I need some proof
I’ve been thinkin’ of your old fruit
And how it does decay
I’ve been think of its old flesh
And how it falls away
And how everyone I know
Is gonna find a piece of land
Somewhere to rest their bones
When they’ve finished up their dance
I’ve been thinking of your old fruit
And how it used to taste
I’ve been thinking of this whole mess
And how it seems to fade
And how the only the thing I know
Is there’s a great wave a comin’
It’s gonna make us right
We’ll all get clean tonight
