You Are Wise

I said you were the devil
and it made you cry;
you said it wasn’t nice
cuz hell is made of ice
I’m not nice

Then I called you Buddha,
and you squirmed and hit me in the eye;
I meant that you were wise,
I said it to be nice
You are wise

Things that fester in the dark
under rotting tree bark
You put your hands into that place
You’re giving hell a kind of grace

Mountaintops and fights with cops
You are green and bleeding on the street
They kicked you with their feet,
You’re spitting out your teeth
You are green

Let me see all that you see,
oh please, I’m on my knees
Let me see

Like a toddler, like a cat
You do not fear snakes or rats
When you’re lying in the mud
You don’t mind the sight of blood
My love

You are wise
