The grass looked greener on the other side 
So I tried to, snatch myself from your hand 
Caught a boat to anywhere but Nineveh 
And, well you know, I got spit back on dry land. 

Give me purity and give me continence 
But oh no, not yet. 
Like a coin hiding in the corner 
Trying not to be swept 
And I was trying not to be swept. 

Kicking against these goads 
Sure did cut up my feet 
And didn't your hands get bloody 
As you washed them clean (you washed them!), 

Here I am again, back where I began 
Try as I may I can't get away from you 
And all of these roads lead me to roam, 
Bring me back home. 
Here I am again, back where I began. 

So you have yourself your ninety nine (ninety nine), 
Isn't that enough for you? 
Still you followed me to the shadowed valley 
Carried me on your shoulders too. 

I've done the work of Sisyphus 
Thinking that I could get over this hill 
But the one thing I can't get over now...(is the) 
Is the force of your will. 

[Chorus: x2]
