[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mahogany_rush/the_answer_tab_ver_2.html ]
I'm standing inside a silver room
A sound inside my head like a sonic boom
A preacher with a dagger purple and black
Is tearing sacred pictures
On my naked back

Hey preacher, and he smiles in return
I think you wanna see me burn
You're squeezing out my blood
Please tell me why
But he proceeded to break down and cry


chorus:

Oh does anyone know the answer
Tell me Lord, does anyone know the answer


I'm floating beyond a cosmic dream
A feeling in my throat makes me wanna scream
A lover who has no love to spare
Is ripping out the roots of my leather hair

Hey lover, and she made a drunken face
Well put yourself in my place
Please tell me why you wanna see me hurt at all
But she proceeded to break down and bawl


chorus:

Oh please does someone know the answer
Oh does anybody know the answer

Well I'm old
I'm tired and cold
I'm dripping like a rainy day
I'm searching for a being who's seen what I've seen
And I know I'll find him someday
I know I'll find him someday
I know I'll find him someday
