The song is listed inside the musical reference book 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die.

Lyrics

I’m seemin’ to be a little alive
I’m happy again, caught, caught in time
Expose the daughter of yourself well
Me, I think that you’re in her heart

You’re the match of jerico
That will burn this whole madhouse down
And I’ll throw open the wall- not safe
More like a love that’s a bot-tle of exquisite stuff, yes

You, yourself, and your father
Don’t know, so part in your own ways
You’ve really both bone setters
Thank you for mending me babies

You’re the match of jerico
That will burn this whole madhouse down
And I’ll throw open like a walnut safe
You will seem more like being that same bottle of exquisite stuff
Yes, you are that match of jerico
That will burn this whole madhouse down
And I’ll throw open like the wall- not safe

You, yourself, and your father don’t know
So part in your own ways
You’re really both bone setters
Thank you for mending me babies
