He made an enemy then he made an enemy of all of you
It's him, not you
You never heard it from me
But there's a breech in the hull
Where the truth and the water's too deep to prove
He made an enemy then
He made an enemy of all of you
It's him, not you
It's a little red sea
Let the miracle worker go free
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And a man falls in the sea

He was a man of many nations
Had a hundred souls and a hundred to go
He was a man of many nations
Two hearts, two hands, it's a slippery slope
He had a fear of being naked
But you're any other man in another man's clothes
He was a man of many nations
With revelations, oh revelations
He wrote a book about the Bible
He wrote a book about men in the sky
He wrote a book about the smell of the winter
And then two A little less simple to decipher
Saying "I am the water at the foot of the palms,
Or I am sand and wind, and a shitty mirage,
But either way, I'm a man of many nations!"

Was it the mending of the gown, or the running it around?

She had a name, she had a spirit
She had a line in the play if you waited to hear it
But a master of disguises
Her demise was her design, they said
"Was it the mending of the gown or the running it around?"
She said: "My name and my spirit are both corrupted
If you hold me close you gotta hold me up!
It was the tender meaning of this slender gown
That brought me bending to the ground
Now you'll wear any old thing, oh you'll wear any old thing"
So she wrapped herself in swaddling
That the fever deviated to a broken wing
"It"s an act, I think she's just pretending"
Burn the virgin flags and I will shake
As the heat waves in the sand
This one's for Maggie
This one's for Sam
Or any other random spirit lover
Busted
I have lusted after you
The way bloodsuckers do

Was it the mending of the gown,
Or the running it around?

It was the tender mending of this slender gown
That brought me bending to the ground
But this ship was built to go down
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
