For Prayer
Wye Oak Lyrics


All this dirt is my disease
Please, please

Wanted hands but I got knees

You drop by to help me out
Out, out
Baby, what's all this about?

You thought you're better than you were
I wanted beast but I got bird

There's no room and there's not time
So you scratch yours and I'll scratch mine

Sinned to, a way to a body tied
I guess I do believe in God

But I'll forgive and make it right
If it freezes up tonight

So cross your fingers say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

Cross your fingers, say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

A Soul's Condition

All this dirt is my disease
Please, please

Wanted hands but I got knees

You drop by to help me out
Out, out
Baby, what's all this about?

You thought you're better than you were
I wanted beast but I got bird

There's no room and there's not time
So you scratch yours and I'll scratch mine

Sinned to, a way to a body tied
I guess I do believe in God

But I'll forgive and make it right
If it freezes up tonight

So cross your fingers say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

Cross your fingers, say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

It may be too early to say, but 2:37 is quite possibly the greatest moment ever recorded in modern music history.

Watching this right niw on Carson Daily. Incredible live performance. I had to hear it again

I remain unconvinced that there are better moments in music than the pedal steel/noise freakout at 2:37. Gives me chills.
