She caught the melting sky
It burned but still the winter passes by and by
To the other side

A slow parade of wind
That blows through trees
That wilted with the seasonґs children

Are we saved by the words of bastard saints?
Do we live in fear or faith?
Tell me now whoґs behind the rain

A maze of tangled grace
The symptoms of ґfor realґ
Are crumbling from embrace
But still we chase...

The shadows of belief
And new religion clouds our visions of the roots
Of our souls

Are we ashamed of our own fate?
Or play the fool for our own sake?
Tell me whoґs behind the rain

What do we need? Where do we go?
When we get where we donґt know
Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow?
When faith's our shelter from the cold

(Solo)

Oh, ooh whoa...

What do we need? Where do we go?
When we get where we donґt know
Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow?
When faith's our shelter from the cold

Quicksand Jesus Iґm so far away
Without you
Quicksand Jesus Iґm so far away
Without you, oh ooh whoa oh...
Quicksand Jesus Iґm so far away
Quicksand Jesus Iґm so far away

Quicksand Jesus I need you
Quicksand Jesus I believe you
Quicksand Jesus Iґm so far away... Take me away

    It means that he doesn't know who to believe in anymore because no matter how much you pray when it hits the fan, it is ultimately up to you to save your own ass. Praying to "Bastard Saints" ain't working and Jesus ain't around to "miracle" his way out of a jam.

    It means that we are all caught in quicksand without Jesus. We cry out to Jesus"Quicksand!!" Help us out of it. We ARE so far away without him.
