lyrics

we're lost inside your maze
you've fixed us in your gaze
you're going to lead us to the center and devour us
you're going to chew us up
you're going to spit us out
you're going to fill us up with love and hope and faith and doubt

we're going to go crazy

your spirit is a woman made all of light
she's hidden herself in blankets of night
she wanders the world weeping and crying
and looking for the pieces of you trapped inside
the world that you have made with your hands
the world you gave to woman and man
and you're calling to the children of abraham
and every tribe and nation from the back of your van
to drive us crazy

i wish i knew your name
i wish i knew your name
i wish i could see your face

we're trying to express this with our tongues
pretty much failing 'cos they're thick and dumb
but you gave us these sweet opposable thumbs
and arms and legs and a kingdom to come
so lead us on with your drum and fife
march us out into the night
God help us to lose our minds!
once we were blind but now we're just plain crazy!

we want to know your name
we want to know your name
we want to see your face
even if we have to go insane
