I could never sing like you did I wouldn’t dare, even if I had the choice It was tarnished, and faded, and muted But it was always the golden voice I sort of thought you were immortal So preternaturally ancient and wise Till the day that you stepped through that portal To some kind of other side And now I hope you run into the Sisters of Mercy again Yes and I hope that they sweeten the dark of your unending night I know you’ll have greeted the darkness just like an old friend Oh but I hope there’s a big enough crack to let in some light You’d been to the past and the future You knew how the cycle repeats And this chaos, deception and murder Well it wasn’t something you needed to see But now I hope you run into the Sisters of Mercy again Yes and I hope that they sweeten the dark of your unending night I know you’ll have greeted the darkness just like an old friend Oh but I hope there’s a big enough crack to let in some light Yes now I hope you run into the Sisters of Mercy again Oh and I hope that they sweeten the dark of your unending night Now I never did catch you to tell you that you were my man But your fingerprints are on every song that I write

Take care of yourself Let’s rewind to the mid twenty-ohs See the kid with the runny nose Yeah, the big funny nose Shuffling around in his thrift store clothes Snuffling and sneezing with yet another cold That’s me, and mostly he’s doing okay Smart boy, he’ll make something of himself someday But if I could write a letter, try to make his life better, Well I know just what I’d say: If you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school Take care of yourself Dear Micah, want to know why your colds last two weeks each? Cause you still come to school when you’re too weak to speak Drag yourself from desk to desk, your respiratory mess infesting the rest Of the class, who would love to be home in bed But their asses are stuck in homeroom instead While you’ve got an excuse cause you look half dead With your leaking nostrils, your swollen head But here you are, never miss a day of school And it’s weird, bizarre, you look like a fool Yeah, a few years later you’ll get a special piece of paper But no one thinks “Perfect Attendance” is cool If you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school Take care of yourself Take a look in the attendance book, you’ve got a spotless record But your history of salubrity, well, that’s a lot more checkered So if you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school If you feel like shit, stay home from school Take care of yourself Take care of yourself

Laudate Dominum Qui solem lunamque creavit. I know the sun will shine till the day I die And a few billion years more And I'll be fine till the day I die With the sunlight keeping me warm And I can measure the days as they pass me by And on days when I can't seem to stop myself whining I look up to the sun and I see it's still shining And if somehow the sun Were to suddenly dim I would survive through faith in the one Who created the sun And I know the moon will turn, turn, turn about the earth For at least a few billion years more I know that it will pull, pull, pull against the ocean And peel it away from the shore And I can mark the months as they pass me by And on nights when it seems that the whole world is burning I look up to the moon and I see it's still turning And if somehow the moon Were to stop in its tracks I would survive through faith in the one Who created the moon
