THE LAUGHING BONE‎ > ‎WORD‎ > ‎SONG‎ > ‎

Jesus Is Coming

Adam's got a hole in his side
Eve's gnawing on a bone
Had two sons
Now there's only one
I guess that's just how it goes

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

Cain set sail across Galilee
Jonah watching out for a whale
Saw an albatross
Before it all was lost
And the dead man told his tale

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

Solomon cut the baby in half
Gideon tied the knot
Got one side crying
The other one dying
Can't remember what they forgot

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

Old man digging a hole in the ground
Carpenter building a cross
One of them knows
That the other one chose
To tell everyone to get lost

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

There's a broken branch by a broken man
A rope hanging off of his neck
Trinity coins shine
In the sands of time
He knew that ship was going to wreck

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

Seven skulls smiling in a coral cave
John's got a book full of dreams
But he broke its spine
Trying to find the line
Where he rows the boat dowm the stream

Jesus is coming
Coming to get his bones

Mares eat goats and slit their throats
And the roses are all turn blue
Little lambs run
Under the dying sun
Before they get eaten too
