I would take "no" for an answer
just to know i heard you speak
and i'm wonderin' why i've never
seen the signs they claim they see
are the special revelations
meant for everybody but me?
maybe i don't truly know you
or maybe i just simply believe
'cause i can sniff, i can see
i can count up pretty high
but these faculties aren't getting me
any closer to the sky
but my heart of faith keeps poundin'
so i know i'm doin' fine
but sometimes finding you
is just like trying to smell the color nine
Now i've never "felt the presence"
but i know you're always near
and i've never "heard the calling"
but somehow you've lead me right here
so i'm not looking for burning bushes
or some divine graffiti to appear
i'm just beggin' you for some wisdom
and believing you're puttin' some here
Smell the color nine? but nine's not a color
and even if it were you can't smell a color
that's my point exactly...
