Kind or Rational

lyrics

turn off the radiator that is clanking all night long
pick up your pins and needles 'cause this is a glory song
turn off the sin and rancor that is burning in your heart
because it tears, you know it tears, it tears his ears apart

turn off the pins and needles that are prickling through the ground
turn off your endless keening and emit a glory sound
all bloody sick and lonely I have let myself get weak
I need to change, I need to change, I need to change my sheets

oh God, I wasn't kind or rational
oh God, I couldn't make it good
oh God, I wasn't kind or rational
couldn't love you the way I said I would

what if my neighbor teaches me I don't need light or sound
and soon with gentle mentoring my senses all shut down
what if my neighbor strings me up and no one comes to help
I have to love, I have to love my neighbor as myself

so God, I wasn't kind or rational
oh God, I couldn't make it good
oh God, I wasn't kind or rational
couldn't love you the way I said I would

soon with gentle mentoring my senses will shut down
I'll stay real quiet and patient when you put me in the ground

I'm going down

and when I look up at you you are curiously unlined
I have to love my neighbor but my neighbor changed my mind

I have to change
you have to change my mind
