Special thanks to Tim Arnett for letting me play this for him by the apartment complex dumpsters and hearing potential.

lyrics

We were not born in sin, we were born homesick
With a gun in one hand, and a noose around our necks
Choking on our own discontent (well, what did you expect?)

How can I find anything here,
As good as where my soul knows we will go?
What good is the “kingdom coming”
When we’re waiting blind and broken down below?
Oh, Holy Ghost--

Holy Ghost, I’m full of holes,
Let me be found.
Take this waste, make this wasteland
A holy ghost town.

We were not born in sin, we were born gut-shot
Bleeding out through that hole, where a maker would go
We’re in pain, and we know it.

How can I find anything here
As good as where my soul knows we will go?
What good is the kingdom, if it’s coming
When we’re waiting blind and broken down below?
Oh, Holy Ghost--
