Mystery Iets - “Someone Purer” from the album Radlands

lyrics

I was gripped with a bit of fear
worried the one thing that I loved
back when I was just a kid
might now never be enough
that the body I was in
might belong to someone else

Someone kinder, Someone surer, Someone innocent, young and beautiful
someone purer, that's the one I know

I was scratching at my skin hopin changes would begin
but what laid beneath was blood
well of course what the hell was I thinking of
won't you take me down to the creek wash away our sins of sleep

I feel so tired as though I might
not wake at all on the other side.... that's no way to go.
That’s no way to go.
That’s no way to go.

CHORUS:
Oh my dear one
bathe me in your glow

cut out my lonely heart
and bury it in the snow

nothing really means nothing
is the saddest thing I know

so deliver me from sin
and give me rock and roll
Give me rock and roll

ADDITIONAL LYRICS:
And in the morning there'll be hope
and in the morning there'll be light
and if I sleep and dream up a system
a solution
to fend off perils of the night
come on in, I'll be born again
born again as someone else
Someone kinder
Someone surer
Someone beautiful
someone purer

and when I am you'll know
and when I am you'll know
when I am you’ll know
when I am you’ll know

Oh mighty one
the devil knows my name
will salvation come
and wash away my pain?
for I was once a kid
with a pure and innocent soul
so deliver me from sin
and give me rock and roll

Give me rock and roll
Give me rock and roll
a pure and innocent soul
and a pure and innocent soul

Give me rock and roll
Give me rock and roll
and a pure and innocent soul
and a pure and innocent soul

Soul
Pure and innocent soul
Pure and innocent soul
