lyrics

If I might quibble
This invisible hand is vestigal
Though capable of gestures imperial
Dear me, Adam
What of the vile maxim?

Some whispers from a prayer cell seep underneath the headlines

So what’s a little distant infidel blood spilled?

Is that a camp? No!
It’s a city on a hill
Bracing for the disaster of uncertainty

He was just slumming
Jesus plus nothing
