From the album Why Am I So Romantic?

Lyrics

Bricks laid on bones. Who’s going to sympathize now?
Bricks laid on bones. We are not deceiving them,
Only believing ourselves. It goes:
Put your faith into me,
Put your trust into me.
Put your eyes on my hands and I’ll ask you to leave.
Bricks laid on bones. All our atrocities swim & blend,
In our house built on homes;
Call it philanthropy, invented philosophies serve your end. It goes:
Put your faith into me,
Put your trust into me.
Put your eyes on my hands and I’ll ask you…
Well, no point asking how. No, we wouldn’t believe it.
And no point looking down. No, we still couldn’t see it.
And do you expect the world to die for our sins today?
Bricks laid on bones. We shine with the brightest,
We glitter like diamonds, all clenched in a fist that’s
Cut off at the wrist, & you’re home. It goes:
Put your faith into me,
Put your trust into me,
Put your eyes on my hands & I’ll ask–
