lyrics

a listing in the local classifieds
told me where the miracles reside
with the miracle merchant
in the arctic circle
for who i am searching
traveling by sea turtle

a temple in the mist fades into view
my giant friend slides back into the blue
and through the doorway i go
into a sea of pilgrims
praying to their idols
to cure their endless symptoms

my number's up but i can hardly speak
sir what can you prescribe for this disease
i've come from Ontario
to your holy island
to taste the miracle snow
sold by your blessed hand
