lyrics

Hold on.
Your Holy One can have what he needs,
I only want to cling on.
Keep still! You see what I see?
The gnawing and gnashing, the dark panoply-
They shriek their seduction; their pleasure streaked sheets surround us.
We sing our elegy,
Crying out in two-part harmony,
We plead.

Watch out! We’ll wriggle and bleed.
So keep stout and grab what you need.
Fill up your cheeks and fill up your pockets if you please.

Light up the altar and sing what you sing-
We beckon down rain, pray his name through our teeth.
We screamed when we saw it, we cried out in revelry,

And Here comes the wave! How it tears through the house!
Here comes the wave! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re saved!
Here comes the wave- how it blows through the horrible panoply.
How they moan, how they writhe when they all hit the sea.

So grab on my hand and run with me-
The terrible crashing, the cacophony-
I thought it would save us, you said you would save us please!

Pounding and pounding they pillage and purge,
With wave after wave till there’s one final surge.
I’ll take to the belfry you spire the minarets

And Here comes the wave! How it tears through the house!
Here comes the wave! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re saved!
Here comes the wave- how it blows through the horrible panoply.
How they moan, how they writhe when they all hit the sea.
