The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983. Instrumentally, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as "What Is the Light?

(Jesus Song No. 5) 
Waitin' for my ride
Jesus is floatin' outside
(Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me)
Watchin' the water rise
I'm gettin' lost in the tide
(Cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself,
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep 

Watchin' the planets shine
Reflecting yourself in the sky
(Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me)
Scraping these smiles of mine
Impossible one at a time
(Cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself,
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep 

Jesus is at my side,
Wondering what he will find
(Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me)
Watchin' the water rise
I'm gettin' lost in the tide
(Cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep
