Playing To The Firmament Lyrics

There are kids, lots of kids, who put the law inside a circle. As they jump, I
hope that you will, up and down, up and down. When did you came into this role
that you were cast in? When did dress-up turn to fasion? Throw your gown, up
and down. There's always the sky, let it hear what you're saying, for all that
you are saying. And let it take you apart, to the elements of praying. Til we
are only playing to the firmament. Til we are only playing to the firmament.
In the rain, in the rain, people rush around on cold streets. Here's a shell
to hear their heartbeats, very loud, very loud. Where's the pain, it's only
rain, it's only slowing down a workday. Only singing happy birthday to a
crowd, very loud. So turn on the sky, let it hear what you're saying, for all
that you are saying. And let it take you apart, to the elements of praying.
Til we are only playing to the firmament. Til we are only playing to the
firmament. And when did sex get so mean? When did crime get so clean? You
know, I j
ust can't seem to find my soul in this striving. And why not play to a dream?
You know, this world is too green for all this baaaad driving. What's the
rush? Dip your brush into this twilight. There are leaves upon the skylight,
trace your hand, trace your hand. Mr. Red, he shot a head, he shot a head
inside a circle. On a bad day who would you kill? Take a stand, trace your
hand. There's always the sky, let it hear what you're saying, for all that you
are saying. And let it take you apart, to the elements of praying. Til we are
only playing to the firmament. Til we are only playing to the firmament.
