Don't Know When but a Day Is Gonna Come

This song is by Bright Eyes and appears on the album Lifted or the Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground (2002).

Is it true what I heard about the Son of God?
Did he come to save, did he come at all?
And if I dried his feet
With my dirty hair
Would he make me clean again?

They say they don't know when but a day is gonna come
When there won't be a moon and there won't be a sun;
It will just go black
It will just go back
To the way it was before.

I knew a lovely girl with such pretty pride,
And every man wanted her and so did I...
And so did I,
But she up and died
In a fit of vanity.

Now men with purple hearts carry silver guns
And they will kill a man for what his father has done,
But what my father did
You know it don't mean shit
I'm not him.

And you think I need some discipline well I've had my share
Now I've been sent to my room, I've been sat in a chair
And I held my tongue
I didn't plug my ears
No I got a good talking to.

Now I don't know why but I still try to smile
When they talk at me like I'm just a child
Well I'm not a child
No I am
Much younger than that.

And now I have read some books and I have grown quite brave
If I could just speak up I think I would say
That There is no truth
There is only you
And what you make the truth.

So I will just sing my songs and I'll pass a hat,
Then I'll leave your town and I'll never look back,
No I don't look back
Because the road is clear
Laid out ahead of me.

I'll get home and meet my friends at our favorite bar
We'll get some lighter heads for our heavy hearts
And we will share a drink
Yeah we'll share our fears
And they will know how I love them
They will know how I love
They will know how I love them
I am nothing without their love

Now I don't know when but a day is gonna come
When there won't be a moon and there won't be a sun
It will all go black
It will all go back
To the way it is supposed to be.

Well, is it true what they say about the Son of God?
Did he die for us, did he die at all?
And if I sold my soul
For a bag of gold to you
Which one of us would be the foolish one?
Which one of us would be the fool?
Which one of us would be the foolish one?
Which one of us would be the fool?

Could you please start explaining?
You know I need some understanding.
I could do with some explaining,
You know I want to understand.
