lyrics

Scrap Pile in The Sky
Eric Powell and Robert Powell

VERSE
Well they shot the peacemaker
Yesterday afternoon
Say there's no time for resolution
They say there is no room
There is no room

But I still have
A skin and a skeleton
But what I dreamed is unraveled and undone
It's all undone

CHORUS
We will heal and we will defile
We are blood and bones and bile
We've got a lot of grace
We've got a lot of guile
We must have come
From the old scrap pile

VERSE
Should I give him four legs
Or should I give him two
Make his skin green or make it blue
A beast in every color
A saint in every shade
A dog is chasin' his tail
And the light is on the fade it's on the fade

CHORUS
We will heal and we will defile
We are blood and bones and bile
We've got a lot of grace
We've got a lot of guile
We must have come
from the old scrap pile

BRIDGE
Scarp pile in the sky
Strewn all around on the land on high
Sewn by the hand of divine discard
Let's play ball in the old scrap yard
