Raine Maida



I know this girl
As pretty as can be
The sign of an Aquarius
She was born on the 18th
UFOs, snakes and spiders
Give her the creeps
She's got a half life, a half smile
And lives in semi luxury
Questions God, drugs and bullets
And the high school beauty queen
She's courageous but scared to death
That's what courage means

She's looking for some courage
She feels faithless, she feels earthless
She wants to run
She's strugglin' for purpose
I tell her hang in now it's worth it
You've just begun

Her bedroom is her temple
The books and stereo her muse
She feels humbled by this equation
And sets fire to all her shoes
Not because of Henry Miller
She's just not leaving anytime soon
And as the smoke pours out her window
An image forms behind the moon
And it looks like the face of Jesus
But if it's Jesus she needs proof
At the heart of the matter, the matter of fact
The science of matter
She hopes that it's true
