i know a man who takes what he can get
living by the things he believes in
raising a family & swimming through sand
i shudder to think

i am young, but once i was younger
when we swam in lakes to spite the summer heat
& i saw something, i swear i saw jesus
i swear i saw something that i could take

& we saw the faces of the people we loved
burst into flames for the light display
in colors so brilliant, in flashes so bright
i couldn't look away

& i felt the heat in the palm of my hand
sweating, impatient, embrace the land
you were as i, cold & alone
you're breaking to pieces on the telephone

& i heard the spirit in the calm of my head
the peace of my heart & the peace of the land
& you've come to take me & break what i am
you make me a new man, a new man

oh my god, a new man
oh my god
