Save me 
The heavens have opened 
The storm is over 
So let's start the parade

Raindrops 
Will turn to laughter 
Forever after 
In your technicolor heartbeat 
And they say 
That it helps you forget everything

Sweet charity 

You drink your poison from a cup of gold 
Your gift keeps on giving and giving 

Perfect photographs 
Of Everest days 
And postcard nights 
Tearing through the paper walls of time 

With sunset eyes 
Telethons, Grand Canyon hearts 
You numb your mind 
With gloves of white and turpentine 
Even the bombs and scarecrows will sing! 

Sweet charity 

Save me 
The heavens have opened 
And I'm alone 
Sweet charity 

Save me 
The heavens have opened 
I'm coming home 
Sweet charity 

Save me 
The asylums have opened 
I'm coming home 
Sweet charity 
I'm home free.
