"Christian Science Reading Room" is the third song on Mark Eitzel's 7th album, 2001's The Invisible Man.


I was so high, I stood for an hour outside the Christian Science Reading Room
and suddenly I could not resist and I became a Christian Scientist
and I studied light and I studied sound
and every question that I asked was suddenly profound
The holy martyrs of gravity - the absolute measure of being free

I was so high that I even scared the cat
and using the language of his tail,
he said he had a vision - a thousand white flags flying over my hat
and then he hid under the bed - and his eyes were big as bells
and suddenly he could not resist and he became a Christian Scientist
and together we explored our world
and found it became more beautiful as it unfurled
