I could get a splinter from a manger And I could get a splinter from a cross I could win the clothes of a criminal And I could give my gold to a child And I could read the prophecies By the starlight, by that star's light And I could see a sign above A hanging, homeless heretic I could smell the blood of the mother And I could smell a sponge soaked with gall I could hear a cry for a father And I could hear the babe crying in free air And I could feel my heart Open wider, beating faster And I could feel such hope This may become a miracle I could feed a fish to a dead man And I could feed my cattle in his bed I could feel fragile bones under swaddling clothes And I could feel a hole in his side And I could track their footsteps Into Egypt And I could see him rising On a cloud into Heaven Where's my metaphor? Where's the metaphor? Where'd it go?

Who could have known Tonight would be the night Some nights there are wolves Some nights there are strays Tonight a fleet of angels Who could have known Tonight would be the night Some nights there are wolves Some nights there are strays Tonight I see Messiah Who could have known Tonight would be the night No one but our Lord No one but our God No one besides I Am Who could have known Tonight would be the night No one but our Lord No one but our God No one besides this child
