I'm standing inside a silver room
A sound inside my head like a sonic boom
A preacher with a dagger purple and black
Is tearing sacred pictures
On my naked back

Hey preacher, and he smiles in return
I think you wanna see me burn
You're squeezing out my blood
Please tell me why
But he proceeded to break down and cry

chorus

Oh does anyone know the answer
Tell me Lord, does anyone know the answer

I'm floating beyond a cosmic dream
A feeling in my throat makes me wanna scream
A lover who has no love to spare
Is ripping out the roots of my leather hair

Hey lover, and she made a drunken face
Well put yourself in my place
Please tell me why you wanna see me hurt at all
But she proceeded to break down and bawl

chorus

Oh please does someone know the answer
Oh does anybody know the answer

Well I'm old
I'm tired and cold
I'm dripping like a rainy day
I'm searching for a being who's seen what I've seen
And I know I'll find him someday
I know I'll find him someday
I know I'll find him someday
