Big Head Todd & The Monsters – Hymn lyrics

The city is spread
Reach to the heavens
This cloud cover breathing soft and rain
Yes I'm good looking
Yes I have money
Don't it count for nothing over there.
The snow falls dirty
We watch our blue T. V.
Educated in monotony
The rains won't let me see
The acid falling from the sky
The bloody tears in your eyes.

This is my hymn
It's the only one I know
This is my hymn
I lift it up to you.

My heart can't quite reach to the heavens
Lyin' face down in unbelief
Love or money can't fill it up
This empty space that keeps running deep
Is it true you love me
You're the only one I need
One sweet flower of ease in the bitterest Hell
Is your voice to me
Whisper your love gentle
Could you really love me
Never disappointed, disenchanted
In me you believe
I will lie down waitin',
I will cry waitin',
I will work waitin',
Waitin' for your love.

This is my hymn
It's the only one I know
This is my hymn
I'm screamin' out to you.
