holy bible time

what is the bible like, now let me think
it's turquoise blue, it's neon pink
it's a golden lion head
with a mane of doves
an ocean of song below
a dome of wisdom above
and there is no evidence
no explanation why
there is no compass
no key
just a bible sun in a bible sky
so stand atop the bible til your tears run dry
it's holy bible time, holy bible, holy bible time, holy

the bones of the bible beneath the sand
of a holy region, a holy land
where a holy species of holy forms parade
from day to night, from night to day
until those sleeping bones blown clear of sand
stand and walk upright with upraised hands
and with arms and legs, with skull and spine
dancing out an alphabet
a mighty creation sign
so stand atop the bible til your tears run dry

cherish the bible, guard it with your life
cleaving one to the other
like a husband and a wife
grind the bible into a polished lens
to scan the heavens from end to end
alone with the bible, as alone as you can be
and when the heart's eye opens, you can begin to read
and if you know the bible then you have seen
there is nothing in it to believe
but if you take the first step and walk inside
you will find
it's a magic wilderness where you can thrive
so stand atop the bible til your tears run dry
it's holy bible time, holy bible, holy bible time, holy

what is the bible, the book, now let me see
it's a perfumed stone, it's a dancing tree
it's a listening wheel, a speaking road
and with joyous footsteps, I am coming home
stand atop the bible til your tears run dry
