Mountain Goats – White Cedar lyrics

Like a star come down to walk the earth in radiant array
I saw the light of my spirit descend the other day
I was standing by the bus stop on Northeast 33rd
When I got the word

I will be made a new creature
One bright day
I don't have to be afraid
Speed that day on it's way
You can't tell me what my spirit tells me isn't true
Can you?

Woke up on lockdown one more time
My visions won't ever learn
But I see the light that much clearer every time I return
Forge my armor in the old fire
My spirit sings lound and clear
Even in here

I'll be reborn someday, someday
If I wait long enough
I don't have to be afraid
I don't wanna be afraid
You can't tell me what my spirit tells me isn't true
Can you?
