Barely Listening (Pilate)

I lie awake on this phone call, she's dreaming of better days Flowers lie on the counter, remind her of better days She sends a prayer up to Jesus And she asks him for his strength And the night will go on bleeding Was it faith that paid the rent? *And I know you’re barely listening I know you’re barely listening I know you’re barely listening Now I know you’re…. I know you’re barely listening I know you’re barely listening I know you’re barely listening Now I know you’re…. Standing here in a doorway with a candle and a gun The light tears through open windows For now the day has won [Repeat *] Like a child on her way here You just smile and run the other way And faith won’t find you a reason It just smiles and runs the other way And It just smiles…. It just smiles and runs the other way It just smiles…. It just smiles and then runs the other way (scat singing) It’s not worth waiting [Repeat *] you can't shape love with a hammer, and you can't shape love with a will, what horror lies in knowing there's no faith that chaos can't kill
