lyrics

Wishing Well

You can pray if you want to, but the wishing well is dry.
They’ll never hear your cries, as hard as you may try.

You can beg like a pauper, it’ll fall on stony ground.
You can howl like a hound, but your voice won’t make a sound.

You can plead for forgiveness, but they’ll never hear your pleas.
You can get down on your knees. You can say your Hail Marys.

You could wail like a banshee. Stick some paper in the wall.
You can build your temples tall. Further down for you to fall.

Save your breath and stand in line with all the rest.

Because you don’t get a pass, you have to get up off your arse.
So don’t call your maker's name just to hide your living shame.
You’re a bad man and we know that just the same.


You can sing Hallelujah, go to church from time to time.
You can take a little wine. You could never touch the swine.

You can bow to a statue. You can shave off all your hair.
Buy some special clothes to wear. You could never touch down there.

You can preach if you have to. You can tell them what to eat.
Tell them not to eat the meat, of certain things with certain feet.

You can lie if you want to. You can burn those bridges down.
Watch them smoking on the ground, but the flames won’t make a sound.

Save your time and grab a ticket, wait in line.

Because you don’t get a pass, you have to get up off your arse.
So don’t call your maker's name just to hide your living shame.
You’re a bad man and we know that just the same.
