Radical Face – Baptism lyrics
Back when I used to wander, I was always out looking for signs
But they were never there, so I'd pull 'em from the air
We all believed in something, but like you I can't say why
It's just a whisper in our ear, or a bottle for our fears

Hold me to the light, let me shine
Come hold me against the floor and say it's alright
Come hold me 'neath the water's skin until I'm new again

And I said what I was thinking, now you can't see what's good 'til it's gone
Then there's something to be said for a place to lay your head
I told me I was simple, and you injured me with that piece of my mind
And I listened to the creek and it did much more for me

I'll hold you to the light, let you shine
I'll hold you against the floor and say it's alright
'Cause down beneath the water's skin where we will swim
There's diamonds on the surface then
And, they'll come clean us, we'll both live again

These days I barely wander, and I don't need no more of them signs
I'll just breathe in all that air and be happy that it's there
