Only in the evening does he make his presence known
A holy rollin' ocean at his feet
Doctor doctor help this man
He's sick on cigarettes again
And stuck on pulling secrets from the deep

Holy ghost nobody knows why he can't rest his weary soul
"Come and play this part we've built for you."
Don't you dare apologize
Open up those crimson eyes
Keep swimming in that phosphorescent blue.

You are not you badge and gun
Or everything to everyone

Only in the evening do I make my presence known
I got a holy rollin' ocean at my feet
Doctor I don't wanna fight
I'm out on new frontiers tonight
Best you keep your distance when I dream

Holy ghost I think you know
Why I don't rest my weary bones
I finally found me something I believe
I'll never once apologize
I'll open up my eager eyes
Keep on swimming in that phosphorescent sea
