Saint Judas 03:48
I want to see your eyes in the morning light because it's easy to hide in the darkness of night Your words are spinning like a record the needle is skipping I've heard this song forever Speaking in tongues I'm painting your condition shallow portraits with a menial vision I'm telling the truth I swear that I'm fine cross my heart and hope to die it's a stab in the back from the sharpest of knives break my bones and snap my spine There's no bridge between us left to burn losing trust you haven't earned aimless deeds, you're a walking enigma with a shameful life, riddled with stigma My feet are sinking into the ground what was lost can now be found shine your light burn away the clouds what was lost can now be found
Laid To Rest 03:27
I felt the wind you blew in on it chilled my bones I heard the sound you've been making it shook my soul I've been looking through my telescope to figure out who you are all it took was different point of view to see the worst in you I don't want to see what could have been mine what will I find in the wasted time You're the empty vase that I threw against the wall shards of glass, I watched them fall and I cut my hand while I was cleaning up the mess one thousand days laid to rest You can dance with whoever you'd like but I won't sell myself so easily there's a songbird up in the trees I love the way she sings to me
Coming full circle, this is where we belong running the same paths that we did when we were young but I melted the bronze and smashed the stone where you fell in love, where you built your home These are golden leaves stained with mediocrity until a chilling wind blew and set them free whistling through the trees go ahead and sing me to sleep and I'lll pray for the day when we have god at our feet Your eyes shine with mercy you sing like a dove reciting words you learned from above but you don't know nothing, no, nothing at all about the whispering wind, or the trees in the fall I could just sit here for hours and speak of all the times I felt too weak to swallow the truth, to live honestly what does that mean for me
Rain 04:22
The hum of the machines in the hospital mixed with silent screams was that with you or was that me Can I pray your pain away can I cling to you rosary for who's sins do you try us oh why does it rain on the righteous On the eve of your fall I had breakfast with your sister she's a sweet old woman but she likes her coffee bitter Can I pray your pain away
