Jesus Wrote a Blank Check

This song is by Cake and appears on the album Motorcade of Generosity (1994).

Jesus wrote a blank check
One I haven't cashed quite yet
I hope I got a little more time
I hope it's not the end of the line
Yeah, Jesus wrote a blank check
Ah, one I haven't cashed yet, all right

Well, if I had to choose a number
I'd want it to be number one
I don't want to be number two
Yeah, I don't want to be number four
Yeah, but I can hear a knock on the door
Jesus wrote a blank check, all right

If Jesus saw me dying
Would angels come a-flying down?
I hope I got a little more time
I hope somebody lends me a dime
Now, Jesus wrote a blank check
Ah, one I haven't cashed yet, uh-huh

Still I build my towers high
I watch them pierce the blue, blue sky
Still I wallow in the mire
Still I burn this earthen fire

Still I build my towers high
I watch them pierce the blue, blue sky
Still I wallow in the mire
Still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire

Ah, still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire
Still I burn this earthen fire
