Shibboleth Songtext

Treat me like dirt, I can take the hurt,
As long as you say you love me,
I will try to walk on water for you,
All you need do is tread gently on me.
I'll bear the burden of guilt for the world,
The pain and the blame for all that goes wrong,
No need for trickery to carry the load
Only too willingly I'll take it on.
Couldn't you see I'd have walked through fire
Just to hear you speak my name
With the pride and the joy you used to show?

The words that we said have lost all sense
In the Babel that has engulfed me,
Many are the voices saying different things
I can't hear my own in the din,
Many are the lines to read between
And I seem suddenly to have lost my place,
Even the unity that was your voice
Has shattered into barbs that pain me.

Couldn't you see I'd have walked through fire
Just to hear you speak my name
With the pride and the joy you used to show?

Shibboleth, all meaning gone,
Shibboleth, it's time to move on.

Couldn't you see I'd have walked through fire
Just to hear you speak my name
With the pride and the joy you used to show?

The promises we made in faith have dissolved
In the flood of tears I have wept for you,
The firm ground on which we used to stand
Submerged by your own knowing hand,
Underwater held until it drowned
Only then 'Love' did you baptise it
And seek to return me to your arms,
The fallen with garlands now re-crowned.

Couldn't you see I'd have walked through fire
Just to hear you speak my name
With the pride and the joy you used to show?
