Prayer Wheel

G#m      C#m  
Oh, oh, oh     play four times
G#m                        Gm         F#m            Gm
These are the fasting days     Gonna' break our will 
    G#m                        Gm        F#m           Gm
Let Christ out of the money box, Let our hearts be still 
      G#m                          Gm     F#m         Gm   
We'll crawl on our bellies now and make a wound to heal
G#m                       Gm          F#m     Gm
Dry blood on the potter's soil is our holy meal

     G#m
     Take a page, print your name, tack it to the prayer wheel
     C#m                                           G#m
     Spin it 'til it makes the sound of a thousand voices crying
                                     C#m
     Every name that's on the prayer wheel, Lamentations up to heaven 
     F#Maj
     Make some small enough to wear 
      A
     Around our wrists, reminders there 
            G#m            C#m
     Of the promises we made
         G#m   C#m

G#m                        Gm      F#m          Gm
These are the gathering days    of clouds and pages
          G#m                       Gm    F#m             Gm
There are icons on the subway walls,      prophets and sages
    G#m                     Gm       F#m          Gm
The wheel will stand upon a mound of dust and ashes
    G#m                          Gm      F#m
Our backs are pinned against the wall of thorns and lashes

     G#m
     Take a page, print your name, tack it to the prayer wheel
     C#m                                           G#m
     Spin it 'til it makes the sound of a thousand voices crying
                                     C#m
     Every name that's on the prayer wheel, Lamentations up to heaven 
     F#Maj

    G#m                        Gm       F#m        Gm
Now these are the numbered days,    the final stages
   G#m                                   Gm      F#m       Gm
We live in caves upon the mountain called    The Rock of Ages
               G#m                      Gm       F#m
And there will be no signs like statues with the bleeding hands
       G#m                 Gm      F#m
Just a fire burning in the soul of every man
