Patron Saint of Desperate Causes

Purchase on  The Queen of the Western Hemisphere - Big Medicine Head  and all online music stores

There is a river running
right outside my bedroom window
I hear the water ripple
louder when the southern wind blows
there is a river running
right outside my bedroom window
I heard a voice
I saw a sign
I saw the light

I saw The Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a fire burning bright

I saw a slogan carved
into a wall inside a subway
I saw a soldier kicking peasants
in a another country
I saw a corporation
And I saw a tribe in their way
I heard a voice
I saw a sign
I saw the light

I saw the Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a fire burning bright

there is a guiding hand
that leads us through our desperation
there is a jungle full of thieves
who think that they’re a nation
there is a guiding hand
that leads us through our desperation
there is a light
there is a voice
there is a sign

There is a Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
The Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a fire burning bright

I saw an Arab
dancing wild in his minaret
I saw a desert scarred
with tire tracks and cigarettes
I saw an Arab
reach for heaven from his minaret
he tried to touch the face of god

There is a Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
The Patron Saint of Desperate Causes
there is a fire burning bright
