Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids - Passing The Hat

rate me

Look up from the hymnal, look 'round at the faces of families closing their eyes

We're taking Communion and passing the offering hat around at the same time

I reached for the hat and take all the cash

And slide it into my ragged coat sleeve

And leave in its place a note to explain

All of the reasons that Spirit has led me to leave

If there was a worthy cause for to give to

May I be so bold as to say

The givers not knowing where their money's going

That's as sinful as throwing away

Stained glasses shine on my red wine

And the sweat of my brow drips to my shaking knees

A small sacrifice to benefit one man's journey away from America's seas

Sweet sweet sigh of relief

Sweet sweet O Baltic Sea

Sweet sweet sigh of relief

Sweet sweet O Baltic Sea

Sweet sweet sigh of relief

Sweet sweet O Baltic Sea

Nobody here knows my name

Call it right or wrong

I bought my ticket just the same
