Salome & Saint Procula

Make a big show of it, we both know what you did
I keep my promises
A silver platter down, forerunner over now,
You made your mama proud

=

Nobody ever comes too close
To knowing all the things that we do
To change things
Dust, if you must
Make it so nobody loves us
As long as you know
Someone won’t turn a cheek
so the rest of you can follow

=

Go ahead, keep sleeping, stay
Your dreaming came too late
This whole thing’s underway
They won’t be reasoned with, I still don’t know what He did
I wash my hands of Him

=

Nobody ever comes too close
To knowing all the things that we do
To change things
Dust, if you must
Make it so nobody loves us
As long as you know
Someone won’t turn a cheek
so the rest of you can follow

=

Someone has to
Someone has to
