lyrics

BIG BRIGHT MARBLE

Amen-Ra, Amen-Ra

Who frames your shadows
In beams of gold
Unfolds the roses
Warms you when you’re cold

Who starts the church bells ringin’
As the stained glass glows
The dog’s got the leash in his mouth
You’re taking off some clothes

Who catches your bad dreams
Who makes your nightmares go
Who is the icicle sculptor
On mornings after snow

Behind your closed eyelids
He paints a bright orange dark
We’re made of blood and stardust
Born of a solar spark

Let’s take a minute to marvel
At this big bright marble
That we’re orbiting around
Orbiting around

Amen-Ra, Amen-Ra

He’s shimmying across tree tops
Shimmering down the train tracks
He’s climbing the rooftops
And crowning all the smokestacks

I want to fly like Icarus
But keep a safer distance
To dream big like Copernicus
To think like Aristarchus

They’re bowin’ down in Brighton
Sacrifice in Yucatán
Giza, Pisa, Polynesia
Kyoto Japan

He started up 4.6
billion years before today
And he does it all from
93 million miles away

Let’s take a minute to marvel
At the big bright marble
That we’re orbiting around
Orbiting around
