Attrition
The Jeapordy Maze


Sister Teresa

God and his companion
Asked me if I damned them
Broke a window in my dream, this morning's scene
Took me by suprise
Took me to communion
I figured how to fool them
I broke bread with honey, and lead for money
But sin was in my eye

Teresa said: you look your age
And we all hide our face inside
Teresa said: you look so strange
Teresa sister saying that she tried

Man, I was contented
Ask if I repented
Broke a door into my world, this evening's girl
Took me for a ride
Taken by illusions
So many ways to use them
I gave my head for sugar, and rent to my brother
But time was on my side

Teresa said: you look your age
And we all hide our face inside
Teresa said: you look so strange
Teresa sister saying that she tried

Swallowing my pride
I pulled myself up and out of the familiar
I drifted up and far away
From the roar of the disenchanted
We smiled
While the hole in the sky was unravelling

Teresa said: you look your age
And we all hide our face inside
Teresa said: you look so strange
Teresa sister saying that she tried
Teresa said: you look your age
And we all hide our face inside
Teresa said: you look so strange
Teresa sister saying that she realised
