Forgiveness Lyrics

We are swimming with the snakes at the bottom of the well
So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell
But we are not snakes and what's more, we never will be
And if we stay swimming here forever we will never be free

I heard them ringing the bells in heaven and hell
They got a secret they're getting ready to tell
It's falling from the skies, it's calling from the graves
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved

Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby, we've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air, and we were blessed
It's hard to give, it's hard to get
But everybody needs a little forgiveness

We are calling for help tonight on this thin phone line
As usual we're having ourselves one hell of a time
And the planes keep flying right over our heads no matter how lond we shout
"Hey, hey, hey!"
And we keep waving and waving our arms in the air but we're all tired out

I heard somebody say today's the day
Big old hurricane, she's blowing our way
Knocking over the buildings, killing all the lights
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night

Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby, we've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air, and we were blessed
It's hard to givem it's hard to get
It's hard to live, baby, but still I think it's the best bet
Hard to give, I'm never gonna forget
But everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
