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?
