Mewithoutyou - Four Word Letter (Pt. Two) lyrics

rate me

I wrote a four word letter,<br />

With post-script in crooked lines, <br />

"Tho I'd lived I'd never been alive." <br />

You know who I am - you held my hem<br />

As I traveled blind<br />

Listening to a whispering in my ear, <br />

Soft but getting stronger,<br />

Telling me the only purpose of my being here<br />

Is to stay a bit longer.<br />

<br />

Stealing a bicycle chain, <br />

As the handlebars crashed to the ground,<br />

The back wheel detached from the frame,<br />

It kept rolling, yeah, but aimlessly drifting around.<br />

<br />

Oh, doubters, let's go down, <br />

Lets go down - won't you come on down?<br />

Oh doubters, lets go down-<br />

Down, to the river to pray?<br />

<br />

"But I'm so small I can barely be seen - how can this great love be inside of me?"<br />

Look at your eyes - they're small in size, but they see enormous things.<br />

<br />

Wearing black canvas slippers<br />

In our frog-on-a-lily-pad pose<br />

We sewed buttons and zippers<br />

To chinese pink silk<br />

And olive night clothes<br />

If you can someday stop by<br />

Somehow we'll show you the pictures and fix you some tea<br />

(see, my dad's getting a bit older now and just unimaginably lonely).<br />

<br />

Oh, pretenders, let's go down<br />

Lets go down- won't you come on down? <br />

Oh, pretenders<br />

Lets go down-<br />

Down to the river and pray?<br />

<br />

"Oh but I'm so afraid, and I'm set in my ways" <br />

But he'll make the rabbits and rocks sing his praise.<br />

"But I'm to tired, I won't last long." <br />

No, he'll use the weak to overcome the strong!<br />

<br />

Oh, Amanda, let's go down<br />

Lets go down- won't you come on down?<br />

Mama, Nana, lets go down, down in the dirt by the river to pray?<br />

<br />

You struke the match - why not be utterly changed by fire?<br />

To sacrifice the shadow and the mist<br />

Of a brief life you never much liked - So if you'd care to come along we're gonna curb all our never-ending, <br />

Clever complaining (as who's ever heard of a singer criticized by his song?)<br />

We hunger, but though all that we eat brings us little relief we don't know quite what else to do, <br />

We have all our beliefs but we don't want our beliefs,<br />

God of peace, we want you.
