Lyrics

I don't believe in people walking on water,
I don't believe in heaven, I don't agree with hell
Why would someone threaten their sons and daughters with damnation and torture
when they mean well?

With dirty hands but our hearts are clean
and all our best laid plans lay scuppered out at sea
You and me, I'm beginning to see

I don't mind people changing water to wine,
I do that all the time, seems fine to me
It seems I do alright when left to my own way
I'm much more likely to give praise
I'm beginning to see

With dirty hands but our hearts are clean
and all our best laid plans scuppered out at sea
You and me, I'm beginning to see
You and me, I'm beginning to see

Since I was born in to a world full of borders
To follow doctrines and orders with no way to breath
I don't know I guess I'm bridled and blinkered
Just not one of the thinkers
I'm beginning to see

With dirty hands but still our hearts are clean
and all our best laid plans scuppered out at sea
You and me, I'm beginning to see
You and me, I'm beginning to see
