lyrics

Who will make the body clean?
Can you bleach out your darkest stain?
Can you bleach out your darkest stain?

Who will set the body free?
Can you shake off such heavy chains?
Can you shake off such heavy chains?
But you can't shake that feeling of shame

Work your signs and wonders
And miracles to see
For all your sons and daughters
And all who would believe
And turn the wine to water
And pour another drink
For all your sons and daughters
And who would receive

Who will make the cripple leap?
Can you reshape a broken piece of clay?
Can you reshape a broken piece of clay?

Who will take the widow's grief?
Can you make a profit from her pain?
Can you make a profit from her pain?
Might as well not lose if there's nothing to be gained

Work your signs and wonders
and miracles to see
For all your sons and daughters
And all who would believe
And turn the wine to water
And pour another drink
For all your sons and daughters
And who would receive
And pour it out for me

Hyssop's on his lips
Blood is on your hands
Dry and broken ribs
In the list of his demands
The wreckage of a ship
On the unforgiving land
Like everything you did
Is sinking in the sand
We were just some kids
But you spoke just like a man
With secrets in his kiss
And murder in his plans
Is it still a sin
If it's his command?
And maybe he'll forgive
Or at least understand
Vinegar and spit
Doesn't wash your hands
