Misery of Sainthood

lyrics

saint jude, what should we do. you're withered and wrought. from the things we do to you. do you answer our prayers. or do they fall on deaf ears. because you've been dead for years. how put upon. this youngest child. and only son. who sat down to calm himself. so he closed his eyes. to block the light. that floods his mind. and without a fight. he carved. so they gathered around. this broken man. and called his name. but all he said was. prepare yourself. for the great maneuver and sway. prepare every last one. for the great maneuver and sway. so let's burn that effigy. because soon you'll be twenty-three. and i couldn't stand to see you die. oh, don't ask me why. but those words never came out right. though i could always write them down just fine. and you spoke to me without relief. you said if these ghosts hang around. for much longer, you'd be forced to complete. those awful deeds. now the sounds spins around. up in to the rafters. and comes crashing down. at our feet
