Books of Moses Lyrics

by Tom Waits

Books of Moses, bringing stone news
Wet in the water, weeping in the sun
Books of Moses, got some splinters didn't you
Books of Moses, brought me right here back to you

Flaming heart, ain't it sweet
Lighting the world at your feet
Books of Moses, myth and truth
Books of Moses, bring me back to you

Hero's welcome, there stands your king
Where the serpent shudders and the angels sing
Books of Moses, happening again
Yes, he knows us, welcome him, your friend

Books of Moses, bringing stone news
Wet as water, blood covering the sun
Books of Moses, bring me back to you
