Caroline

Caroline
Middle finger queen of the never mind
It’s been a little while since the second time
I knew that you’d never come home

Caroline
You were just a child
In the fireline
You were just a child
When your mama died
And daddy couldn’t make it alone

And I wonder out loud
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Caroline

Now then you’re in the magazines
Tabloid rags and the trash machines
Spitting out the image of the memory
Of a girl with the pigtails flying

I had a dream that you were calling home
Standing in the rain on the pay phone
All that you were getting was a dial tone
No one on the end of the line

And I wonder out loud
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Caroline

Ohhh, ohhh

They say your heart is where your treasure is
But maybe there’s another way to measure this
Cause it feels like what you find pleasure in
Are the things that are bringing you down

And every now and then I wonder if you’ll ever make it home again
Back to the childhood innocence of the girl on the old playground

And I wonder out loud
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Where your heart is now
Caroline

Back to the Beginning Again

[To be featured on the Switchfoot documentary/film, Fading West]

(Lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change)

I can feel it building up inside
Images that play inside my mind
Dreams that I’ve been dreaming all my life
Colors that live outside the lines

Dreams are all that I have beneath this skin
The chord is cut, the fear, and doubts begin
My hope is anchored on the other side
With colors that live outside the lines

And the ocean roars
And wheels and spins (?)
And the ????
Bring it back
Bring it back to the beginning again

Back to the beginning again
Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again (?)
Back to the beginning again
Back to the beginning again
I want to feel the wind at my back again (?)

Cold ??? of LA harbor stacks (?)
And the ????? across my back
???? time unwinds
But I’m stuck in traffic on the dotted yellow lines

And it always sounds like poison on my ears
Background noises make your voice hard to hear
??? teeth and straighten up my spine
I sign my name on dotted yellow lines

Open my heart
My heart is yours
??? broken ???
But you’re what I’m running towards

Bring it back
Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again (?)
Back to the beginning again
Back to the beginning again
I want to feel the wind moving over my life again (?)

And the ocean roars
And wheels and spins (?)
You’re what I’m running towards (?)
Bring it back! Bring it back to the beginning again
Back to to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again (?)
Back to the beginning again
Back to the beginning again
I want to feel the wind, ????,
I want to feel the wind on my back again (?)

Like A Bird

When I wake there’s a longing
There’s a longing inside
To leave all these belongings
And cast encumbrance aside

Oh my soul are you hungry
Are you willing to fight
Find your place of belonging
Setting fire to the sky

Oh my soul can you feel it
Reckon dead bones to life
Oh my soul can you hear
Beckon Lazarus rise

Come alive, come alive
Like the bird in the sky
Come alive, come alive
Like the bird

Left the fire of the morning
Saw the snow coming down
Watched the waltz of the winter
Grace the skies above town

Every snowflake a dancer
In the song without sound
Every snowflake surrenders
Watch them melt on the ground

Come alive, come alive
Like a bird in the sky
Come alive, come alive
Like a bird

Joy is Your Birthmark

You’re the music in these streams
You’re the movement in these springs
You’re the muse that haunts these dreams
You sing like a school yard

You’re the meadow in my room
You’re the flower yet to bloom
In your eyes I see things new
They’re shining like lost stars

Sweetheart, sweetheart
I pray you never forget who you are
Joy is your birthmark
Yeah, joy is your birthmark

May your eyes always burn bright
And your footsteps grazed with light
When the shadows fall tonight
Pray you still hear the songbirds

May your laughter keep you warm
And your smile hold its form
You’re a flower in these storms
May the rains make you stronger

Sweetheart, sweetheart
I pray you never forget who you are
Joy is your birthmark
Yeah, joy is your birthmark

Cause I see your smiling face
Even in these dying days
I believe in grace redeeming the lost cause
Cause I’ve seen it in your eyes
We are miracles come to life
These are signs in my mind that point to a good God

Sweetheart, sweetheart
You’re stronger than you think you are
Yeah, you’re stronger than you think you are
Joy is your birthmark
Yeah joy is your birthmark

First Light

When your heart is feeling low
And the weight is on your shoulders
and the tears begin to flow
From your eyes

Just remember what you know
Just remember what I told you
The seed you plant in love will grow
Give it time

And you know it
But your heart has doubts
You believe it
But you want it now

The day is dawning
The day is dawning
here comes the morning
First light, first light, first light

when the sun’s behind the gray
And the moon is only waning
And the stars have gone away
Don’t you cry

The world is full of highs and lows
When the nights are hot or colder
breath comes in and out on loan
and we’re alive

And I love you
And I always will
When the lights go down
I will love you still

The day is dawning
The day is dawning
here comes the morning
First light, first light, first light

Rise and shine
Rise and shine
Rise and shine
Rise and shine

Take your heart and set it free
Take the weight off these shoulders
Most of life ain’t what you see
With your eyes

The sunlight finds you when it’s time
The moon will fade over the waters
the fears you had will leave your mind
At first light

Everything Will Change In Time

Say hello to the ones and the zeros on the internet
Walk around, take a good stare down tomorrow
Here we are wide eyed in the shadow of the infinite
The infinite

Well you’ve got your reasons and I’ve got mine
But I’m not believing the hype this time

- Chorus -

We stop and go for the same old things
Living for the old deadlines
Tomorrow knows what tomorrow will bring
Everything will change in time
Everything is changing

Say hello, we’re the kids on the corner of the ????
But I’m looking for a place that money can’t buy me
Selling out that flash and pass for the permanent (?)
For the permanent (?)

Hey what about mixing ???
Settle for one thing and everythings through

- Chorus -

We stop and go for the same old things
Living for the old deadlines
Tomorrow knows what tomorrow will bring
Everything will change in time
Everything is changing
Here we are wide eyed in the shadow of the infinite, the infinite

Before Our Time

January, February, March
The days are marching forward
April, May, June and July
They lie like a hummingbird

August, September, October
The year is almost over
November, December arrive
Now the year is gone

Time is illusion
Time is a curse
Time is all these things and worse
But our time is now
Our time is now
Let us sing before our time runs out

Time is illusion
Time is a curse
Time is all these things and worse
But our time is now
Our time is now
I’m gonna sing before my time runs out

Ghost Machine

All hail the siren of our time
I’m possessed when she passes by
She drains the best years of my life
She makes promises
She could never keep

Ain’t it a ghost machine
Making a ghost out of me
After of all her lies I’m surprised that I still believe
She haunts me with her laughter in my dreams
My ghost machine

Father forgive me because I know
Exactly how I’ve spread my soul
My idolatry is in the pocket of my coat
I make promises
I could never keep

Ain’t it a ghost machine
Sucking the life out of me
I’m still haunted by the faces on the screen
I swear she’s gonna make a dead man out of me

Do you know yourself?
I heard a voice call out
We define ourselves
By the things we can’t live without
I deny that I could quit at any time

But my ghost is a drug
My ghost is a drug
She’s in my blood
And I can’t give her up

The clock the altar of our time
Fought the temple of our mind
I’ve been sprinkling blood of most my life
On the altar of my ghost machines

Ain’t she my enemy
My ancient remedy
After all her lies
I’m surprised that I still believe
She haunts me with her laughter in my dreams
I swear she’s gonna make a dead man out of me
My ghost machine

Untitled [Collide?]

My mind is racing forward
But my thoughts are racing back
Back to when I met you
The world was white and black

Our love was an explosion
I saw colors in the sky
I still can see those sparks
When we collide
When we collide

World is full of fools gold
Sparks that catch the eye
Yours are the only pair of lips
That I want pressed up next to mine
There’s lots of pretty faces
But I’ve got one on my mind
I’m waiting for the day when we collide

When we collide
When we collide
When we collide

We’ve got our disagreements
Our separate points of view
The line that runs between us
Could be the thread that pulls us through

I know we’ll find an answer
All differences aside
I’m waiting for the day when we collide

When we collide
When we collide
When we collide

Against the Voices

Start the day against the voices
The ones that tell me that I’m wrong
I hear them now screaming their delusions
I close my eyes and they’re gone

If they ain’t singing, if they’re just talking
Let them keep talking to themselves

Cause everybody knows
That the hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself in a world
That wants to turn you into someone else

Start the day against the voices
The ones that tell me I don’t belong
I hear them now screaming their confusion
I close my eyes and they’re gone

If they ain’t singing, if they ain’t singing
Let them keep talking to themselves

Cause everybody knows
That the hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself in a world
That wants to turn you into someone else

Lalalalaa lalalalalalalaa
Lalalalaa

I close my eyes and they’re gone, gone, gone, gone

If they ain’t singing, if they ain’t singing
Let them keep talking to themselves

Cause everybody knows
That the hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself in a world
Is a fight to be yourself

Cause everybody knows
They ain’t singing, they’re just talking
Let them keep talking to themselves

Cause everybody knows
That the hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself in a world
That wants to turn you into someone else

Yeah-eh-eh-e-e-e-e-e-e-eah
Yeah-eh-eh-eah

All of God’s Children

(These lyrics are subject to change)

When the things that you can’t hold on to
Are the ones that you wish you could keep
Are you really ready to pay for love
If it costs you everything?

All of God’s children
All of God’s children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

I believe in a world that’s beyond me
I believe in a world I ain’t seen
Past the glass, and shotgun shacks
Violent faceless racist facts
I believe in a world that’s made clean

All of God’s children
All of God’s children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

Underneath these scars
Underneath these wars
Underneath the bullet holes
We still don’t know who we are
Just shining underneath
Shining underneath

Oh, I’ve been waiting for love to give birth
New life to show pain it’s worth
I’ve been waiting for peace on earth
Like a newborn child
Oh, like a newborn child
Shining underneath

Is there a well that won’t run empty?
Is there a friend that can’t be bought?
You’ll find them when you’re thirsty
Learn the lesson that can’t be taught

All of God’s children
All of God’s children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

Come Home

(These lyrics may not be completely accurate and are subject to change)

A spark in your eyes starts to let go
Turning to smoke
Everyone knows it
Something inside starts to let go
Turns into smoke
But nobody shows it

The hope that we had
The dream that we were
Both seem so far away
You were made for than just pain

I’m looking for reasons to try
A reason to live or to die
Won’t you come home?
Back to where you started

If this is the meaning of life
Every breath that you take is a fight
Won’t you come home?
Back to where your heart is
Won’t you come home?

What once was a girl is now just a ghost
Is now just a ghost
And everyone knows it

Seen it before
And we watched her explode
Yeah a high and a low
But nobody shows it

Nothing hurts worse
Than a hope that’s deferred
Don’t let it slip away
See you shining under the shame

Looking for reasons to try
A reason to live or to die
Won’t you come home?
Back to where your heart is

If this is the meaning of life
Every breath that you take is a fight
Won’t you come home?
Back to where your heart is
Back to where your heart is
Slipping away
Slipping away

Yeeaaah
Ohhhhhh

Looking for reasons to try
Looking for reasons to try
A reason to live or to die
Won’t you come home?
Back to where your heart is

If this is the meaning of life
Every breath that we take is a fight
Won’t you come home?
Back to where your heart is

Won’t you come home?
Won’t you come home?

Daylight to Break

(No, I will. I’m just going to sing this track first)

I’ve seen the darkest things
Crawling inside of me
I’ve seen the monsters come alive
I’ve seen the enemy
The nightmare that follows me
Searching the darkness for a light

- Chorus -

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
Waiting for daylight to break
I’ve been alone, in the dark I’ve been dreaming
And waking up without you, I’ve been waking up without you
For too long

Back in the tragedy
I’ve made a mess of me
My bitter means, my bitter ends
I see the irony
It gets the best of me
Dying to be made new again

- Chorus -

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
Waiting for daylight to break
I’ve been alone, in the dark I’ve been dreaming
The day, when dreamers are awake
The sun hits my eyes and everything is right
I’ve been waking up without you,
I’ve been waking up without you,
I’ve been warring alarms
Till you are in my arms
I’ve been waking up without you,
I’ve been waking up without you
For too long

Dark Horses (Original Version)

(These lyrics may not be completely accurate and are subject to change)

Yeah!
I’ve made my mistakes
I’ve seen my heart cave in
I’ve got my scars
And I’ve been to hell and back again

Going for the blue skies
We will survive the rain
Going for the sunrise
We will survive the pain
We will survive
We will rise above it all
We will survive
We’re the dark horses
And the world is ours
Yeah the world is ours

I’ve had my doubts
I’ve always been a long shot
But look at us now
There’s no turning back from here

Going for the blue skies
We will survive the rain
Going for the sunrise
We will survive the pain
We will survive
We will rise above it all
We will survive
We’re the dark horses
And the world is ours
Yeah the world is ours

Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala

We will survive

Going for the blue skies
We’ll survive the rain

We will survive
We will rise above it all
We will survive
We’re the dark horses
We will survive

Dreamer

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change. The title may not be the correct title. This song is by Jon Foreman and Molly Jenson)

Last night I had a dream
That we fell in love under moonlight
You and I will always touch
But the morning came too soon
I woke up without you

- Chorus –

And if you want me
Why do you look the other way?
If you need me
Why do you say the things you say?
If you love me
Why do we play the games we play?
Am I in love with the dreamer?
Or am I just in love with the dream?

When I dream, girl
You’re the dream that might come true
When you dream, girl
Do you even know it’s you?
Dreams are lies in skin
But dreams can’t tuck me in

Oh
I believe it
Hey
Are you leaving so soon?
Hey
When you leave me,
You leave me with a hope
That my dream with you might come true
True, true, true

- Chorus –

So if you love me
Why do you look the other way?
If you need me
Why do you say the things you say?
If you love me
Why would we play the games we play?
Am I in love with a dreamer?
Or am I just in love,
Am I in love with the dreamer?
Or am I just in love,
Am I in love with the dreamer?
I’m not sure I’m still in love with the dream.

Do You Only Love the Ones Who Look Like You?

(By Jon Foreman and Molly Jenson)

Where’s your heart?
Where’s this love you talk about?
Did someone hold a gun
To your head?
Who’s that girl you laugh about?
Did a feeling do you wrong?
You’ve been gone to long

Did love her?
Did you leave her cold?
Did you see her through?
Or do you only love the ones who look like you?

Where are you now?
Are you afraid of being found?
See I’m alone when you come around
Silly girl
What can you see from way up there?
Is that the world in devil’s clothes?
Looking down your nose

Are you lonely?
Are my scars too deep?
Or do you have them too?
Or do you only love the ones who look like you?

Listen, love
To a melody for you
Would it change your point of view?
Or do you only love the ones who sing your tune?
Or do you only love the ones who look like you?

Always [Alternate Bridge]

This is the start
This is your heart
This is the day you were born
This is the sun
These are your lungs
This is the day you were born

And I am always yours
These are the scars
Deep in your heart
This is the place you were born
This is the hole
Where most of your soul
Comes ripping out
From the places you’ve been torn

And it is always yours
But I am always yours

You will always have a spark of me
The part that shines in your eyes
You are always my poetry
You are always mine

And I am always yours

Clarity

(This song was written by Shawn McDonald, Chris Stevens and Jon Foreman)

Well I’m just a simple man with a simple plan
Trying to find my way home
And this dusted way with nothing left to say
I stagger and I roam

And I’m tired and I’m worn
And my clothes are kind of torn
From this long hard road
My arms and legs are weak
I continue to seek
And leave behind this load

- Chorus –

I need clarity and truth to be
And peace to make me whole
I want freedom to be come and hate to be done
And love to guide my soul
I want love, yeah, I want love

Standing on a battle line
I fight for my mind Aching to be free
In this war that I face as I long to embrace
And be with my king

There’s a fire in my soul, desire to be whole
Is deep within in my bones
Now I long to be near as I cast away fear
Running for Your throne

The Drums of War

The drums of war are marching in
The drums of war are marching in
The drums of war, the blood of man
We praise God with the gun in our hand

Oh church, what have we done?
We hold our faith from the back of a gun
We loose our souls even if we’ve won
I say, “Lord, please save me from your followers”

I know, I know
There’s a thunderstorm coming
I know, I know
There’s a thunderstorm coming

We’re all sons of Uncle Abraham
Muslim, Christian and Jew
Yeah, we’re all sons of Uncle Abraham
Until the shot breaks loose

Yeah, they tell me vengeance belongs to the Lord
When heaven comes and the right is restored
When we’ll possess what only grace can afford
Till then we’ll take it with our own drawn swords

“Lord please, save me from your followers”
I know, I know, there’s a thunderstorm coming
“Lord please, save us from ourselves”
I know, I know, there’s a thunderstorm coming

Left and right, black, brown and white
Why does it seem to always end in a fight?
Every pride’s got God on their side
It was pride before the fall going on last night

Oh tell me church how could this be?
A God of light to justify dark deeds
A God of poor to justify my greed
There ain’t no end to justify these means

I say, “Lord please, save me from your followers”
I know, there’s a thunderstorm coming

“Lord please, save us from ourselves”
I know, there’s a thunderstorm coming

Yeah

Evergreen

Me and the trees, losing our leaves
Falling like blood on the ground
I want to be evergreen

Everything dies, I know last night
Part of me wasn’t around
I want to be evergreen
Yeah, evergreen…

Waiting, and listening
Hoping and missing all of our time left alone
I’m the one cutting the rope
Frostbite in winter,
Cuts like a splinter
You come and follow me down
I’m the one cutting the rope
Yeah…

- Chorus –

Holiday end, I’m here once again,
And I’m left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground,
In hopes that I’m found by you this time around

The sun will rise soon and tackle the moon
Chasing it still in the sky
All that I’ve got is tonight
Excuses and reasons, and now ’tis the season
For all that I never got right
All that I’ve got is tonight

The night is a crow, saying come hold me
All that I know is I’ve been so lonely for thee

All that I knew, and all that I know, found itself under your rain
I want to be evergreen
I want to be evergreen!

- Chorus –

Holiday end, I’m here once again,
And I’m left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground,
In hopes that I’m found by you this time around
I want to be evergreen, I want to live all year round (4x)

Fake Your Own Death

(These lyrics may not be completely accurate and are subject to change)

You were talking late last night
What would you live like if you had died
And been reborn with a second chance to live
Would you loose your fear of being dead
And be afraid of something else instead?
Maybe you’d be more concerned with living the life you lead

- Chorus -

You can fake your own death
And live the life you’ve always been afraid of living
Fake your own death
And come alive
Fake your own death
And live the life you’ve always been afraid of living
Fake your own death
And instead of dying start to live your life

I don’t need no fancy flowers
I don’t need a big production
When I die
Paddle my ashes out to sea
I don’t want to lose you honey
But every story has an ending
When I die
I know that your love’s gonna follow me

- Chorus -

You can fake your own death
And live the life you’ve always been afraid of living
Fake your own death
And come alive
Fake your own death
And live the life you’ve always been afraid of living
Fake your own death
And instead of dying start to live your life
Yeah

Goodnight Punk

Everything I ever need to know
I learned at the punk rock show
The punks should know
How to throw an elbow or a fist
A spitting world of hit and miss
A violent place of that and this

But hold on, hold on
We’ll never be quite punk enough
Hold on, hold on
I’ll never be quite punk enough for you

Every since I first learned how to spit
I wished I were a punk rock kid
A punk rock kid
I never really knew quite what to do
I’ll never be as punk as you
As punk as you, as punk as you, and your tattoo

But hold on, hold on
Punk is more than leather jackets
Hold on, hold on
Punk is dead but pop was never cool

What are we gonna do?

Heading Home [Original demo version of This Is Home]

(The lyrics to the original demo version of song “This is Home”)

All my life
I knew something was wrong
Love was a mystery
That I felt all along

There’s a longing inside me for a dream
There’s a longing built deep inside of me

- Chorus -

I’m heading home
To a place I’ve never been on my own
But I’ll know it when I get back home
To a place I’ve always belonged
I’m heading home

I’m heading home

All my life
I knew something was wrong
Love was a mystery
That I felt all along

There’s a longing inside of me to believe

I Wish I Could Change

Autumn leaves are trading colors
The hills are starting to glow
The summer grass is brown and yellow and gold
Cinnamon gold

And I wish I could change
I wish I could change
I wish I could change my mind, oh
But I still feel the shame
I still feel the pain
I’m praying to leave, leave the past behind

The schoolyard crows with laughter
And kids with innocent eyes
Bows and arrows (?), cops and robbers and gangs
Time to change sides

And I wish I could change
I wish I could change
I wish I could change my mind, oh
But I still feel the shame
I still feel the shame
I’m praying to leave, leave the past behind

Oh
You’ve been holding on to the bitter burning
Oh
Forgive yourself and let the seasons turn

And I wish I could change
I wish I could change
I wish I could change my mind, oh
But I still feel the same
I still feel the shame
I’m praying to leave, leave the past behind

Lifetime

(This song was co-written by Jon and Kris Allen of American Idol fame)

I wake up, put my poker face on
It’s roughly the same hand
I was dealt yesterday
I stand up and stare out at the skyline
It’s roughly the same town
That I saw yesterday

Living doesn’t come first try
It takes a lifetime getting it right
It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
To find my place in the worlds symphony
To become the man today
The man I thought I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime

I wake up and bandage these scars
The scars of my heart
That prove that I’m still alive
That I’m still alive
Living doesn’t come first try
It takes a lifetime getting it right

Living doesn’t come first try
It takes a lifetime getting it right
It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
To find my place in the worlds symphony
To become the man today
The man I thought I could be
The man I thought I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime

Light and Heavy

I’m on a roll
I’m feeling Icarus
I might have flown too high

I’m not alone
I’m feeling Icarus
I might have flown too high

- Chorus –

Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for
Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for

Pick up the phone
Please tell me anything
Did you fly too high?

My baby’s grown
Please tell me anything
You might have flown too high

- Chorus –

Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for
Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for

Ahhhhhh, ahhhhhh, ahhhhhh

On my pilgrimage
I’m traveling light with a heavy heart
On my pilgrimage
I’m traveling light and heavy,
Light and heavy, light and heavy

This is my torch to carry
More than just a corpse to bury down
Our souls are lit up under the most extraordinarily light and heavy

- Chorus –

Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for
Adrianna, I hope you find what you were looking for,
Looking for

Light and heavy

Math Poem/Song

(We do not know the title to this poem/song)

It used to be Eden,
It used to be green,
It used be meaning
It used to be dream

We’re ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
What once was a spark
Has turned to rust

What once was a fire
Has fallen to ash
What used to be honor
Has sunk into cash

- Chorus -

Throwing the baby out with the bath
It used to be love, but now it’s math
We’ve lost our way, we can’t find the path
It used to be love, but now it’s math

We’ve got trust
But who can trust us?
We’ve got lawyers
But where’s the justice?

Thousands of Towers of Babel
Above us
Thousands of strangers
With no one to love us

The enemy isn’t without my friend
The enemy of the soul is within
Within our wars, within our fears
Within our clocks, within the years

Restless [Poem]

The voice of the sea on a moonless night
Calling, falling, slipping tides

The voice of leaky, dripping pipes
Endless, aching drops of light

Running, pushing falling down
Always longing, always now

Silent underneath these streets
Even blood finds ways to bleed

Even rivers ways to run
Even rain to reach the sun

Even here within these means
Within this skin, within these dreams

Longing for the other shore
The world we’ve never been before

Restless for the infinite
With tears of saints and hypocrites

For death and life, for night and day
With blood of black and white and grey

One by one by one by one
Our rivers surge and fight and run

Until the sea of glass we meet
At last completed and complete

Where tide and tear and pain subside
And joy and laughter drink them dry

Mercy’s War

(These lyrics may not be completely accurate and are subject to change)

I was looking for excuses
And you offered me my soul
In the name of all my weakness
In the name of rock ‘n roll

By His sickness I am healed
Cause they broke you I am whole
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

I went looking for the fig leaves
And you asked me what they’re for
I was building up a wall
And you offered me a door

I was hoping for silver spoons
But you handed me a sword
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

Maker is unmade
Love succumbs to hate
Life Himself is slain
Is death the only way?
Is death the only way?

I went looking for religion
Absolutely not a friend
I went looking for ways out
And you showed me the way in

I went looking for a ghost
And instead I found a man
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

Felt like I was at the end
Felt like giving up on life
I talked about your mother
And denied you once or twice

Yeah I plucked out your beard
Put a sword into your side
Oh the wonderful of Jesus

Life and love are torn
By the blades of earthly swords
We cut the final cord
This is mercy’s war
It’s mercy’s war

I was just chasing after safety
When my world went up in flames
I saw my defenses
Washed my ashes down the drain

I thought mercy was a stranger
But you called me out by name
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

Your wounds are gaping open
Couldn’t recognize you at first
And all I had to offer you
Was an insult or a curse

Blood dripped down like poison
On the nauseated earth
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

This is mercy’s war
This is mercy’s war
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus

My Coffin

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change)

Dear blue sky
Are you afraid to die
Do you fear you’ll never see the morning?

And the twilight comes
And you lose your sun
Does it come to you without a warning?

When the ???????
How will I know
When the carbon bonds that hold me
Start to let go

Is there someone buried
Beneath this skin?
And is he free when I am lost
In my coffin

Dear moonlight
When you shine at night
Do you fear you’ll use up your resources?

With the sun as king
Do you feel for it’s string
When the higher powers run their courses

When the rain falls down
What brings it back?
Opens the resurrected cloud
From white to black
It’s a second birth
Under this skin
My coffin
My coffin

Yeah

Resurrection comes
But death comes first
All of our entitlements and rights
Will drive the hearse
I’m bleeding death
Death is unmade
The minute I lose myself I’m saved
From my coffin

Mighty Rebel

(By Karl Denson and Jon Foreman)

The mighty rebel comes (teach ya love) (?)
Not thinking about his own survival
The might rebel comes, (teach ya love) (?)
And he don’t fear a rival (?)
A deaf mind and a gentle heart
Living in a world falling apart

The mighty rebel, the mighty, mighty rebel comes

You know you got to rise up, rise up
The war has begun
To fight like he’s the only solution (?)
And love is a gun

The mighty rebel, the mighty, mighty rebel comes

The mighty rebel comes (ready to live)
In the face of the impossible
The mighty rebel comes (willing to die)
To obey the unenforceable law
Haters (?) can’t keep the rebel down
The other cheek is the rebel’s crown

The mighty rebel, the mighty, mighty rebel comes

You know you got to rise up, rise up
The war has begun
To fight like he’s the only solution (?)
And love is a gun

Miss My Kisses

(By Sara Watkins and Jon Foreman)

It isn’t me it’s my attention that you’re missing
It ain’t my voice, but all the sweet things that I said
I’m not your only honey bee, who are you kidding?
So sing your sad song to the rest, let them believe they get your best

It’s time that we both stop faking
No offense, none taken
Honey you weren’t looking for a misses
Mister you won’t miss me, you just miss my kisses

Don’t say my number and you won’t ever find me calling
I was happy before we met, even better after you left
You can keep your seasons and I will keep my sunshine
Keep your money and your time, and I’ll hold on to mine

It’s time that we both stop faking
No offense, none taken
Honey you weren’t looking for a misses
Mister you won’t miss me, you just miss my kisses

You won’t miss me, you just miss my kisses

Please don’t make a scene
And don’t pretend to cry
Just smile and goodnight
And kiss me goodbye one last time

It’s time that we both stop faking
No offense, none taken
Honey you weren’t looking for a misses
Mister you won’t miss me, you just miss my kisses

Monday Comes Around

Friday, Monday comes around

She’s a girl with the weight of the world on her big brown eyes
She’s a girl who’s been talking to herself to apologize
She’ll never do it again she promised
But then she hasn’t been all that honest
Can she trust herself to be herself?
Or is she talking to herself again?

- Chorus –

Hey Friday what you gonna do now
When Monday comes around
Hey Friday what gonna do now
When Monday comes around
Come around
When Monday comes around

Monday comes, when or where do you run to find a second start?
Where do you go when you’re broken, alone, and Friday falls apart?
Yeah, yeah
All these questions are leaving her shaking
Can you be two girls in one?
Can your heart bend this much without breaking,
And you know that you know, and you can never have it both ways

Don’t take it easy
Don’t take it easy
Your saying is “Everybody’s giving and taking, giving and taking,
Everything’s taken away”

Friday, Monday comes around (repeat x7)
On Friday, Monday will always come around
It always comes around

Never Alone

(From the For the Sender project)

We watched the western sky
Falling like a landslide
We saw the half-light disappear
I know how it hurts inside
To watch the dead leaves dry
On your own year after year

But I would never leave you
I would never leave you
Even in your pain
You are never alone
You are never alone

We walk the streets tonight
Lost in the tears we cried
For these dead and dying years
I can feel you heart beat running
I know we’re not home yet honey
But let your hope out with your fears

Because I would never leave you
I would never leave you
Even in your pain
You are never alone

Can you hear my heart beat
Can you hear my heart beat
Can you hear my heart beat
Can you hear my heart beat
Keep it running
Can you hear my heart beat keep running
Can you hear my heart beat keep running
Can you hear my heart beat

I would never leave you
I would never leave you
Even in your pain
You are never alone
I would never leave you
I would never leave you
Even in your pain
You are never alone
You are never alone
You are never alone

Old Borego

(Yeah!
Whatever
One, two, three
It’s almost Christmas/New Year)

I’ve seen snow on Christmas Eve,
Gracing frosted evergreens
After most the trees go brown
I’m still standing

I’ve been miles away from home
Trapped in Charles Dickens’ poems
I’ve been freezing in this town,
But I’m still standing
(One, two, three)

- Chorus –

It’s almost New Year,
In San Diego
Another Christmas,
In Old Borego
Face-down in a little white shack in the back room
This town is a 35 Ford in a bad mood, in a bad mood

I hear you when I’m asleep,
Missy you’re the love I keep
But I still got no cash to send,
In my pocket

It’s been months since we first kissed,
But your face is what I miss,
And I keep your picture bent in my pocket

Out of Control [Hawaii Five-O soundtrack 2011]

You were a sure thing
You were my diamond ring
I was your surgery
Your emergency
I was your outlaw
I was your fatal flaw
You were my iodine
I was your valentine

I’m not sure why you’re here tonight,
Feels like you’re looking for a fight
Today a lifetime has passed before my eyes

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
What came of you and me
And the distance in between
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control.

Well we can overthrow the world that we all knew
Wasn’t I the rock upon which you were building something new
I felt like royalty
Do you question loyalty
Till I deny that I had ever known your authority

How could a kiss become a fight?
How could the darkness kill the light?
How could everything I trusted in be crucified

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
What came of you and me
And the distance in between
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control

And I still don’t understand
Any part of your dying plan
You were so hell-bent
To get to hell and back again

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
Caught in the in between
Stuck in the darkest dream
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control

Out of control
Out of control

Push (The Human Race)

To be honest
I’ve never been honest
And even now
The truth comes out in stutters and fits
Every word that’s born is self-conscious
The critic weighs
Not truth or fact or fiction but wit

And I know
I’m not that funny
So stop laughing,
Laughing

Is our human race the collection of
Our collective longings to be loved
Acted out in fear and pain and push and shove?
Push and shove?

So our worth gets wrapped up in opinion
That fickle friend
Whose loyalty is subject to change
Is acceptance the target destination?
A broken heart
Will follow me as sure as the grave

‘Cause I know
I’m not that funny
So stop laughing
Laughing

Is our human race the collection of
Our collective longings to be loved
Acted out in fear and pain and push and shove?
Push and shove?

And I began to grin
When my final song was sung
Cause the human race is a race that
Can’t
Be
Won

Rebuild

Watching the world with my highway eyes
Watching the world from the windows that I’ve known
These mobile homes

Loneliness was a friend of mine
But with you that’s through and I feel home
Away from home
Away from home
Away from home

- Chorus –

Oh we’re the regeneration
Oh with time to kill
Oh we’re the regeneration
Oh rebuild, rebuild

You lit a fire in the pouring rain
But there’s so many noisy voices
Oh! I get so cold.

The city lights and the midnight train
I hate to say it but I get caught letting go
Of the things I know

Do not conform to this
Do not conform

Every life comes with a broken heart
Dying here to be made whole
We are the lost souls with a second start
Following the builder home
There’s a temple I’ve found in the strangest part
Where the stones are built of souls
Where the builder himself has promised, “love,
I’m never going to let you go. Go!”

Rebuild

Revenge [Switchfoot Version]

(There are the lyrics to the Switchfoot version of “Revenge”, a B-Side of the Oh! Gravity. album)

I’m the failure,
I’m everyone’s fool
And I’m losing my cool
At the ends

I’m the loser
My numbers come up
I’ve been hung up with thoughts of revenge
Revenge, revenge

Ohhhhh ohhhh
Ohhhhh ohhhh

I watched you from my terminal view
As you struggled to rise to your end
I laughed hard at the insults we threw
As the weight of the world found revenge
Revenge, revenge

Ohhhhh ohhhh
Have hatred and gravity won?
Ohhhhh ohhhh

The world hung upside down
I drew first blood, I drew first blood
With my hate for a crown
I drew first blood, I drew first blood
Revenge

I watched heaven dying today
And I’m going to die here tonight
I’m a villain I deserve to be dead
I’ve been hung up for wrecking my life
Revenge, revenge
Ohhhhh ohhhh

So I stopped for a moment to look at the sun
Dying a day
That’s when the irony hit me
That this was revenge
Love had descended and stolen our pain away

We consumed heaven’s son
I drew first blood, I drew first blood
But my hate was undone, I was drew first blood
I drew first blood, revenge

Here’s a story
How a thief had been robbed
How a murder had stolen my rage

Think of me, Lord
I’m a few breaths away
As my lungs finally rip from the cage
Revenge

Running from Me

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change)

I’m stuck with these sins
I’m hoping maybe time can resolve them
I’m a lying, cheating, thieving, coward
Just trying to follow Christ
I’m hoping He can fix this old dog with new tricks
His death is my only device
Yeah death is my only device

- Chorus –

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed to break free
Well all that’s true
Thought I was running from you
Turns out I was running from me

There’s a girl who lives down my street
She says the flowers take care of the bees
She tells me ‘I’m poor and my daddy’s at war,
Oh who’s gonna take care of me?’

Now if history is violence and sex,
I’d rather not pay my respects
If I’ve caused offense,
If I’m too direct
I’m just trying to talk some sense
I’m politically incorrect
I said

La, la, la, la, la, la
Running away from me
La, la, la, la, la, la
Running away from me

I’ve been giving this a lot of thought
Who am I and who on earth is God?
The answer ain’t kind
Or easy to find
But by God, it’s the only answer I’ve got
Yeah God is the only chance I’ve got

La, la, la, la, la, la
Running away from me
La, la, la, la, la, la
Running away from me

Shake It Out

(By Karl Denson and Jon Foreman)

Sitting on the back porch, sipping lemonade
I got some satisfaction, I really got it made
The radio is humming, all of my favorite tunes
You know I’m feeling fine, a little red, red wine
So I just stop to croon
It’s alright

It’s alright if you wanna
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright if you’re gonna
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright if you need to
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright, you can be you
Yeah, yeah
You gotta shake it out
You know you gotta shake it out

Ohhh, ohhh
Me and my own lady
Went out the other night
We met some friends for dinner
Then danced away the night
Went on for a nightcap
And what comes naturally
And when the moment came and she called my name
I let her know it was me

It’s alright if you wanna
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright if you’re gonna
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright if you need to
Yeah, yeah
It’s alright, you can be you
Yeah, yeah
You gotta shake it out
You know you gotta shake it out

It’s alright,
Let me shake that thing
It’s alright,
Let me shake that thing

Go on and shake it real hard and don’t worry you’re not going to break it
Go on and shake it real hard and don’t worry you’re not going to break it

Sooner or Later [Electra Version]

Come back and haunt me
Follow me home
Give me a motive
Swallow me whole

They say I’ve lost it
What could I know
When I’m but a mockery
I’m so alone

Sooner or later you’ll find out
There’s a hole in the wall

Today is ours
Condemned to be free
Free to keep breathing
Free to believe
I look to find You
Down on my knees
Oh God, I believe!
Please help me believe

-Chorus-

Sooner or later you’ll find out
There’s a hole in the wall
Sooner or later you’ll find out
That you’ll dream to be that small

I’m a believer, help me believe
I gave it all away and I lost who I am
I threw it all away
With everything to gain
And I’m taking the leap
With dreams of shrinking
Yeah, dreams of shrinking

Come back and haunt me
Follow me home
Give me a motive
Swallow me whole

Come back
Sooner or later
Oh
Find out, found out
Following me home tonight
Tonight

I want to feel life bleeding
I want to feel life choice
And when I see the sky in front of me,
I want to hear a still small voice
Following me home
I’m found out, found out

She Says (The Black Eyed Blues)

(These lyrics may not be completely accurate and are subject to change)

Looking for reasons
To believe instead of doubt
A way in instead of out
There’s got to be a reason

Looking for answers
For the hatred and pain
When they both start to feel the same
There’s got to be a reason

Only one breath at a time, she says
All my tears are falling on the floor, she says
I’ve never felt it rain like this before, she says
I’ll sing these black eyed blues into the storm instead
I’ll be waiting for the new eyes to arrive
One breath at a time

Kings and queens and little dreams
Are stuck inside these nightmares sometimes, sometimes
And the fairy tales we play
Seem so far away from where she was tonight
Sometimes

I hear her talking to herself in bed
All my tears are falling on the floor, she says
I’ve never felt it rain like this before, she says
I’ll sing these black eyed blues into the storm instead
I’ll be waiting for the new eyes to arrive
One breath at a time

Oh, one breath at a time
Oh, one breath at a time
Oh, one breath at a time

Oh, and I’m holding on to you
And I won’t let go
The world is torn in two
But I won’t let go
You’re the only thing that’s true
In this whole world of black eyed blues
And disillusioned points of view
When the pain feels like a knife, she says
I’m not giving up tonight, she says

Oh, she says
Oh, she says
I’ll be waiting for the new eyes to arrive, she says
She says
Oh, she says
Oh, she says
Oh, she says
I’ll be waiting for the new eyes to arrive

Spirit

Spirit, fall fresh on me
Spirit, fall fresh on me
Hear my cry
Fill my life
I won’t need anything
But You

- Chorus –

I’ve found all that I want
All that I long for in You
I’ve found all that I want
All that I long for in You
And wasted time, is when I’m far from Your truth
I’ve found all that I want
All that I long for in You

Spirit, come be my joy
Spirit, come be my joy
Be my song
Fill my lungs
I won’t need anything
But You

Yes, You’re all that I want
All that I long for is You

The Blues [Alternative Version]

(This version features a different verse near the end of the song)

Is this the New Year or just another night?
Is this the new fear or just another fright?
Is this the new tear or just another desperation?

Is this the finger or just another fist?
Is this the kingdom or just a hit and miss?
I miss direction, most in all this desperation

Is this what they call freedom?
Is this what you call pain?
Is this what they call discontented fame?

- Chorus –

It’ll be a day like this one
When the world caves in

I’m singing this one like a broken piece of glass
For broken hearts and broken noses in the back
Is this the New Year or just another desperation?

You push until you’re shoving
You bend until you break
Do you stand on the broken fields where your fathers lay?
It will be a day like this one, when the world caves in

There’s nothing here worth saving
There’s no one here at all
Is there any net left that could break this fall?
It’ll be a day like this one
When the sky falls down
And the hungry and poor and deserted are found

Are you discontented? Have you been pushing hard?
Have you been throwing down this broken house of cards?
It’ll be a day like this one when the world caves in

You wake alone now
And wish you were asleep
You taste the darkness
But you wish it were a dream
Is this the New Year or is it just another desperation?

Does justice never find you?
Do the wicked never lose?
Is there any honest song to sing besides these blues?

And nothing is okay
Till the world caves in
Until the world caves in…

The Story of a Man Named Pride

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change)

I’ve got a long dark story
The story of a man named Pride
The story of a man named Pride
And how the gun was how he lived and died

Well Pride was a little boy back in ’76
His legs got strong and his arms got long
And he moved to the city from the sticks

He started to grow a head taller
Than any of the other boys
He learned how to twirl the guns and the girls
And he treated ‘em both like toys

Well someday Pride grew up too easy
And the money rolled in too quick
Well he messed around with the girls ’round town
But none of them could make him stick
Till the day that he met his lady
When she walked right in the door
With a cherry tongue and with legs like rum
She had never been in town before

Her name was anything but love
One look was enough
And Pride went off and fell in love
That night

Oh I said I got a long dark story
The story of a man named Pride
The story of a man named Pride
Oh the gun was how he lived and died

So Pride and his cherry tongued lady
Had been together for a couple of years
And love was wine and death in bind
With liquor mixed up with seers

One night Pride and the lady were out drinking
When she walks right in the door
With another man, strong, tall and tan
He’d never been in that town before

Her name was anything but love
Pride had seen enough
He got up to go and pick his final fight
He said “Hello my name is Pride,
And that there, that’s my wife
And this here, this here’s the night
That your gonna die”

Well the strong tall man spoke slowly
He said “I’ve killed too many men before
To care about killing one more tonight”
And two shots broke the silence
One landed in the strangers side
The other one of the two
Whose aim was equally true
Well a bullet found a man named pride

His name was anything but love
But a bullet was enough
Well the gun was how he lived and died
Cause you see everybody dies
Some folks long before their time
Some folks get shot down in their prime

And it was on that fatal night
That the two men shot and died
And one of them was a man
A man named Pride

Oh, I got a long dark story
The story of a man named Pride
The story of a man named Pride
Oh the gun was how he lived and died

This is Home [Soundtrack Version]

I’ve got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can’t go back
Back to how it was

I believe now
I’ve come too far
No, I can’t go back
Back to how it was

Created for a place I’ve never known

- Chorus –

This is home
Now I’m finally where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I’ve been searching for a place of my own
Now I’ve found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I’ve seen the enemy
And I won’t go back
Back to how it was

And I got my heart set on what happens next
I got my eyes wide
It’s not over yet
We are miracles
And we’re not alone

And now, after all my searching
After all my questions
I’m going to call it home
I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see the sunset
I’m going to call it home
Oh

Now I know
This is home

I’ve come too far
And I won’t go back
Yeah, this is home

This is Home (Every Breath is Magic) [Movie Credits Version]

I’ve got my memories, always inside of me
But I can’t go back, back to how it was
I believe you now, I’ve come too far
And I can’t go back, back to how it was

Oh, oh, oh…
Oh, oh, oh…
Oh, oh, oh…

I’m moving forward

- Chorus –

So everyday starts with a magic spark
I’ve got my hopes high with second start
We are miracles, every breath is magic
So you give yourself away, with your miracle heart
Yeah, just to be alive is a magic art
We are miracles, every breath is magic

Belief over misery, I’ve seen the enemy,
And I won’t go back, back to how it was
And I got my heart set on what happens next
I’ve got my eyes wide, it’s not over yet
We are miracles, and we’re not alone

- Chorus –

That’s when everyday starts with a magic spark
I’ve got my hopes high with second start
We are miracles, every breath is magic

That’s when you give yourself away, with your miracle heart
Yeah, just to be alive is a magic art
We are miracles, every breath is magic

Throwing Chairs

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change)

Seatbelts, no smoking, sedated, but I wanna be
Throwing chairs not sleeping on the plane
The dirt, and the energy, the real world, where I wanna be
Throwing chairs, not sleeping on the plane

I wanna wake up low in the world below
I wanna wake up low

The failure, and the hunger,
Ignored so far below us here
Middle class still sleeping on the plane

- Chorus –

I wanna wake up low, In the world below
I wanna love life low, where we need it most
I wanna wake up low, wake up low
I wanna wake up low, In the world below
I wanna love life low, where we need it most
I wanna wake up low, I wanna wake up low

Unbroken

(From the For the Sender CD project)

Out on the margins of town
I been stuck hanging round
These amateur clowns
Wondering where were you
The only song we knew
Was our amateur blues

If you believed why’d you leave me
If you believed why’d you leave me
Even after sticks and stones were spoken
I’m alive
I’m alive
And I’m unbroken
I’m unbroken

I been abused and misled
I been stuck in my head
Unsung and unsaid
Been on needles and thread
I been left for dead
But I’m living instead

If you believed why’d you leave me
If you believed why’d you leave me
Even after sticks and stones were spoken
I’m alive
I’m alive
And I’m unbroken
I’m unbroken

Give me a song to sing
Something to balance out
The fits and starts
That life can bring
I’m waiting
Give me a song to sing
A decent melody
Because I’m alone and I’m nineteen
And I feel like the world
Is trying to swallow me whole
Like it’s trying to swallow me whole

If you believed why’d you leave me
If you believed why’d you leave me
Even after our sticks and stones were spoken
I’m alive
I’m alive
And I’m unbroken
Yeah I’m unbroken
I’m unbroken
I’m alive
And I’m unbroken

The Waco Song

(Performed and recorded live at the Baylor University Island Party In Waco – Spring Tour 2007)

Jon: Since this is an island party, we figured we’d be the whitest reggae band ever. Hey Waco! Okay! We’ve got even like a call and response things. It’s like… imagine I’m Sting… and you’re not Sting…

Tim: Waco! Waco!

Jon: Yeah, it’s like ‘Waco!’

Both: ‘Waco! Waco! Waco!’

Jon: Whatcha gonna do with them bears? Whatcha gonna do with them bears?

Tim & Crowd: ‘Waco! Waco! Waco!’

Jon: Okay now we’re gonna sing a verse. Drew you take the first one. Yeah Drew! Andrew Shirley ladies and gentlemen!

Drew: Check, check, one, two, one, two, I like reggae! Sometimes I listen to Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Jon: Nice. This is Tim Foreman, he plays the bass and he’s not Sting either.

Tim: When I got to the beach, I bring a surfboard. I’m not much of a sailor.

Jon: Ladies and gentlemen, Tim Foreman playing the bass! This is Jerome Fontamillas. He plays everything else!

Jerome: We came long way from San Deigo and put our instruments in a trailer!

Jon: Hey Chad… are you going to sing a verse? C’mon! Chad’s got to sing a verse!

Tim & Crowd: ‘Waco! Waco!’

Jon: When I got to the mailbox, I get so sick of all the junk mail and the mailers. But that has nothing to do with what we’re doing here, we’re playing rock and roll at Baylor.

We Want the Same Things (Please Don’t Make Me Beg)

(Written by Jon Foreman and Amy Grant, this song is slated to appear on Amy Grant’s upcoming album)

I can hear it like a whisper, I can feel it on the street
Please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg
And I see it on the face of every stranger that I meets
Please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg

Hey

When I handed you my heart I thought, put that need to bed
Darlin please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg
For your time and your attention and the thoughts inside your head
Oh please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg

The meeting of our minds, the touching of our skin
We both have different ways, to let each other in

- Chorus –

We want the same things, to be loved
We need the same things, to have enough
We want the same things, someone to trust
We need the same things, please don’t make me beg

There’s a man down on the corner, guitar case at his feet
Oh please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg
And he’s singing out with gladness, and he’s doing it for for free
Oh please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg

Such a simple choice, to share the things we have
He’s got an angel voice, it’s money that he lacks

Said the son to the father, must I drink from this cup
Please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg
And let my death be the redemption, for every single one
Oh please don’t make me beg, please don’t make me beg

That man changed everything when he was lifted up
Can’t you hear him say just don’t run from love

Don’t make me beg

Wide as a Grave

(These lyrics are not completely accurate and are subject to change. Lyric credit: Switchfeed)

Your giving is never satisfied,
You open your mouth as wide as a grave,
Yeah, you open your mouth as wide as a grave.

Loving you is a losing fight,
I wanna know where you were last night.

There’s been a terror in the middle east,
All in the name of keeping the peace,
Soft foundations were being laid,
You were offended but you still got paid.
You open your mouth as wide as a grave,
Yeah, you open your mouth as wide as a grave.
Alright.

(Instrumental break)

You open your mouth as wide as a grave.
Loving you is a losing fight,
I wanna know where you were last night.

Hello honey, it’s a brave new world,
You start a move with your flag unfurled,
Chap stick, spandex, leather and lace,
You’re understanding grace as saving the face.
You open your mouth as wide as a grave.
