Blessing
One Ring Zero Lyrics


Christ, by the dumpster

Peeling and a-tossin' your lottery tickets

Oh Nazarene, drinking dust

Oh Christ, rising and a-fallin'

Oh, Jesus Christ, givin' us the finger
In Christ I'll tumble (?)

Bless, please, the people in art galleries

Lonely as a distant train

Bless, now, the cancer of the bone

The last light making beautiful

The poisons in the sky

And the condemned man in his tuxedo dream

His dream of limousines and innocence

Take off your clothes and come to him in dreams

Stand on the fire escape naked and blest.

With jazz like a rivulet of codeine

The laughter spilling from our broken necklaces, oh

Bless, please, the people in art galleries

Lonely as a distant train

Bless, now, the cancer of the bone

The last light making beautiful

The poisons in the sky

Christ, by the dumpster

Peeling and a-tossin' your lottery tickets

Oh Nazarene, drinking dust

Oh Christ, rising and a-fallin'

Oh, Jesus Christ, givin' us the finger

In Christ I'll tumble

I watched this on the recommendation of Mary Roach, who is the only "deity" I choose to worship. (OK, actually it's just envy that she's living out the life I wish I had time to live, but I chose a different path--still think she is worthy to give a YouTube recommendation or any other media review), and so I find myself here and am glad that's the case. I am now a huge fan of One Ring Zero! I hope that my purchase of your music sends you a karmic hello :D

The documentary 'Accordion Rising' featured a live version that was great. Hey, where's the accordion? Great video, though.
