I carry on my head a bucket of old regrets
a burden so hard not even prayer
can save me

Perspectives of what was
linger longer than what is
how I wish yesterday smiled a little longer

Swing me away from time’s distractions
even I ache to dwell in explosions of righteousness
wicked as I am

Bathe me in your steamy love
until my heart is wrinkled
and become my religion
