I put my faith in a bottle of booze
That sent me softly into the night
I've put my faith in football teams
That filled my guts with fire

But still find myself pickin' blind
When the time comes up to choose
So I'm takin' a stab with this old shaky hand
I'm puttin' my faith in you

Now I've wandered until my feet
Just seemed to be on remote control
And stuck between the stations with the static consolations
Superstition just threw my call

And I looked into that black old night
As if it's duty was to point
Some other way than straight to hell
My soul not to anoint

So punch me fair square in the face and
Drag my bones outside
Well I'm a livin' breathin' example of
A C.L.U.-less guy
So come on baby switch that light

Well all my heroes are drunk or dead
Or sharing a ride with the life
Reformed junkies and reborn flunkies, yeah
You wouldn't trust with your wife

So tell me what chance now did I have
To have a goddamn clue
But dust on off that kitchen table baby
I'm puttin' my faith in you

I've put my faith in so few things
It's funny how I got through
But don't you let my words fall to the ground
I'm puttin' my faith in you

I'm sick of sittin' fences
And punchin' defenceless
I need to make some sense of this mess
And the closest I got to revelations this year
Was when I peeled of your summer dress

So lets cut to the chase
It's a secular taste
That's gonna get us through
So don't let my words go on and fall to the ground
I'm puttin' my faith in you
Don't let my words go on and fall to the ground
I'm puttin' my faith in you
