Artist/Band: Indigo Girls
Lyrics for Song: Galileo [Live/Curfews]
Lyrics for Album: 1200 Curfews [1995]



Galileo's head was on the block

The crime was looking up for truth

And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode

I try to trace them to my youth



And then you had to bring up reincarnation

Over a couple of beers the other night

And now I'm serving time for mistakes

Made by another in another lifetime



How long till my soul gets it right

Can any human being ever reach that kind of light

I call on the resting soul of Galileo

King of night vision, king of insight



And then I think about my fear of motion

Which I never could explain

Some other fool across the ocean years ago

Must have crashed his little airplane



How long till my soul gets it right

Can any human being ever reach that kind of light

I call on the resting soul of Galileo

King of night vision, king of insight



I'm not making a joke, you know me

I take everything so seriously

If we wait for the time till all souls get it right

Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation

In my lifetime I'm still not right



I offer thanks to those before me

That's all I've got to say

'cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime

Now I have to pay

But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration

To let the next life off the hook

But she'll say look what I had to overcome from my last life

I think I'll write a book



How long till my soul gets it right

Can any human being ever reach the highest light

Except for Galileo God rest his soul

(except for the resting soul of Galileo)

King of night vision, king of insight



How long

(till my soul gets it right)

[til we reach the highest light]

How long

(till my soul gets it right)

[til we reach the highest light]

How long
