A man darkened our doorway He said he's here to share the good news He had a smile straight from the movies But when I looked down at his shoes There were holes and they showed his toes The right was left. The black was brown And later on in the garage I couldn't find my chainsaw In the distance I heard trees just falling down I was underneath the city I was riding around on trains Fell asleep before Nassau Ave. And I ended up in Maine There were big tall trees and rocky coastline And the waves came in so wild But for all the natural beauty there were still so many kids that were asking me for something that could help them to get high We're all good. We're all bad We're euphoric and we're sad We roll the rock away and check the tomb We're awake and we're aware that we're confused and cold and scared And the cross reminds us that He died for me and you Woke up in the ocean with the Honolulu Blues Joan Didion and Graham Greene Said roughly the same thing You bring your Jesus to the jungle Try to teach people to sing All the hymns that you love because you learned them as a kid and they make perfect sense to you There's a point in time when thousands die And you've got to maybe think that maybe Jesus isn't getting through We're freezing in the forest There's no wood to heat the house We took axes ti the furniture We pulled the floorboards out There's animals scratching at the door And they know we're gonna die There were big tall trees and rocky coastline And the waves came in so wild We're all wild. We're all free We're all back from Tennessee With the souvenirs to prove that we were there We're flying round in planes We're riding around in trains Searching out those panoramic views Woke up in the ocean with the Honolulu Blues We're all good. We're all bad We're euphoric and we're sad We roll the rock away and check the tomb We're awake and we're alarmed at the scars scratched in your arm The cross reminds us that He died for me and you Woke up in Oahu with the Honolulu Blues.
