Jesus Saves
[intro to Jesus saves spoken by the bum
"Hey, man, got a quarter?
You ain't got nothin' that's ok man, that's ok.
God bless you anyway. Here, I hope I didn't scare you or nothing like that. I, I ain't no bum or nothing
like that. Yeah, I I use to live uptown once once before too you know. No, no, I did I did really. Use to
come down here and look at all the characters. Never thought I'd be one of them though. Characters, man a
lot of characters.
He he, you got a minute, you got a minute, let me tell you a story about this friend of mine. D.T. Jesus
use to stand for Down Town Jesus. He use to sell drugs and stuff down there, and they called him - that's
why we use to call him DeTox. He was one character, one character that made it outa here.
Let me tell you about him."]

Jesus was a talker
Just an out-of-place New Yorker
He hung out on the boulevard
He was sellin' nickel candies
He was saving up all his quarters
Bought himself a cheap guitar
Started playin' bars
Kids came in their cars
Hear them shouting at the stage

Jesus saves
Jesus saves
Yes he does
Jesus saves

You know
Jesus he started changin'
Things got really strange
He saw his tee shirts everywhere
He started missing shows
The band came down to blows
But Jesus he just didn't care

Things got out of hand
And so he quit the band
Still the critics they would rave

Jesus saves
Jesus saves
Yes he does
Jesus saves

So the dice were cast
Today become the past
Jesus just disappeared
He was headed for New York
Or so his little label thought
And there he gave away the years

Last seen drinking wine
Beneath a flashing sign
Promising salvation to strays

Jesus saves
Jesus saves
Yes he does
Jesus saves
Hear him cut through the night
On those late night radio waves
Jesus saves
Yes he does
Jesus saves
 
 
Desiree
Desiree
Listen to your heart
Have the dreams all been scattered
Are all the words just parts
'Cause in these ruins alone
I've been watching you
A ghost among these stones
Desiree I've got to tell you

What good's a tear without a face
To soften its downward fall from grace
And across my heart
Desiree I wish you'd see
Scars are the wounds that we all show
Time only heals if you let go
If you're letting go
Desiree I wish you'd think of...

If you only take chances
When every angle's safe
Have partnerless dances
In castles where you wait

But I see far away
A distance in your eyes
As you go on alone
Piling up your alibis

What good's a tear without a face
To soften its downward fall from grace
And across my heart
Desiree I wish you'd see
Scars are the wounds that we must show
Time only heals if you let go
If you're letting go
Desiree I wish you'd think of...

Lost in a movie script
With no words left to say
You leave on that plane alone
And there inside a midnight fog
I turn and walk away

What good's a tear that fall from grace
What good's a life that leaves no trace
When its time is done
Desiree I wish you'd see

Who needs a heart that never bleeds
Never retreats and never needs
If it's all alone
Desiree I wish you'd think of...
...Me
 
 
Stay
Hey child
Out on your own
You never look back
Never called home
You never turned round
Tell me the games that you play
 
Nighttime
Wander the streets
You never give ground
Never retreat
You're always Oz-bound
Have all the dreams been betrayed
 
Stay
Here where dreams tend to stray
Here you're safe when the night fades away
When the night fades away
 
Hey there
Oz-refugee
You took the wrong road
Hatters and tea are all that you found
Out on the great white way
 
Times change
You never did
Life came
You overbid
Join us
Vassals of courvasier
 
Stay
Here where dreams tend to stray
Here you're safe when the night fades away
When the night fades away
