Lyrics

Cripple man walks, and leper is a beauty
When they say their vows, they do their duty
I don't understand
Horsewhipped, ransacked, false allegations
The prophet man speaks, with wild gesticulations
I don't understand
Is there a secret plan?
The same moon shines down on every man

Somewhere is there someone who knows
Will the rattle of bones be upon me?
Someday at the end of my life
Will a ray of light be shining on me?
I want answers

Penitent sinners on the road to salvation
With a dollar in the coffer and some pious resignation
I don’t understand
Great works of great men to whom we are indebted
Man does the work but God gets the credit
I don’t understand
Am I a foolish man?
A cold moon shines down on every man

Somewhere is there someone who knows
Will the rattle of bones be upon me?
Someday at the end of my life
Will a ray of light be shining on me?
I want answers

Tell me what you know, tell me what you see
Tell me everything
I know deep inside, there's somethin' that you hide
Tell me everything

Life's too short, and it's so odd
That it made me believe in a malevolent God
Who doesn't understand
He's got no great plan
The same moon shines down on every man
