God rest his head Sunday afternoon
And the wicked in me is surely the wicked in you
We pray to a ghost that we never met
Time turns for a cure, from the scientists for

Madness, madness of the heart 
But you knew it, you knew it from the start 

And Hawking will tell us no tall tales this spring 
My eyes saw the chaos that started everything
 Maybe it's faith, when the sadness takes hold
 Still stars through a window, will they ever know this

Madness, madness of the heart 
But you knew it, you knew it from the start 
There's a madness, a madness of the heart 
But you knew it, you knew it from the start 

 Stare a sleepy smile into a sunbeam 
Is this nothing more than a daydream?
 Color stained glass cathedral
 Confess a past that will let you go

God rest your head Sunday afternoon
And the wicked in me is surely coming through 
And pray to a ghost that I've never met
 Still searching for someway out of this mess

It's the heart 
It's the heart 

And there's madness, a madness in the stars 
But you knew it, we knew it from the start
