jesus wrote a blank check lyrics – cake

jesus wrote a blank check,
one i haven’t cashed quite yet.
i hope i’ve got a little more time.
i hope it’s not the end of the line.
yeah, jesus wrote a blank check.
one i haven’t cashed yet, all right.

but if i had to choose a number,
i’d want it to be number one.
i don’t want to be number two.
yeah, i don’t want to be number four.
but i can hear a knock on the door.
jesus wrote a blank check, all right.

if jesus saw me dying,
would angels come a flying down?
i hope i’ve got a little more time.
i hope somebody lends me a dime.
now, jesus wrote a blank check.
ah, one i haven’t cashed yet.

still i build my towers high.
i watch them pierce the blue, blue sky.
still i wallow in the mire.
still i burn this earthen fire.

still i build my towers high.
i watch them pierce the blue, blue sky.
still i wallow in the mire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.

still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
still i burn this earthen fire.
