We are swimming with the snakes at the bottom of the well
So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell
But we are not snakes and what's more we never will be
And if we stay swimming here forever we will never be free

I heard them ringing the bells in heaven and hell
They got a secret they're getting ready to tell
Falling from the sky, it's calling from the graves
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved

Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby we've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air and we were blessed
It's hard to give it's hard to get

But everybody needs a little forgiveness

We are calling for him tonight on this thin phone line
As usual we're having ourselves one hell of a time
And the planes keep flying right over our heads
No matter how loud we shout, hey, hey, hey
And we keep waving and waving our arms in the air
But we're all tired out

I heard somebody sayin', "Today's the day"
A big old hurricane she's blowing our way
Knocking over the buildings killing all the light
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Oh open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night

Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby we've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air and we were blessed
It's hard to give, it's hard to get, it's hard to get a little bit
But still I think it's the best bet, hey yeah
Hard to give, I'm never gonna forget

Everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
