APOCALYPTICAL TATTOOING BY PAUL CLAVÉ

from Suzanne by Leonard Cohen

Jesus was a sailor

When He walked upon the water

And He spent a long time watching

From His lonely wooden tower

And when He knew for certain

Only drowning men could see Him

He said,”All men will be sailors then

Until the sea shall free them”

But He, Himself was broken

Long before the sky would open

Forsaken, almost human

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
