Forgive me father for I have sinned I watched the apple over-ripen I thought with time it'd only get sweeter And now it's turned to something rotten. Why - am I Expecting something better - to chance by? With each and every passing day I go a little more gray Now I'm nearly 2 years older Than my brother was when he passed away Why - am I Expecting something better - to chance by? Why - am I Expecting something better - to chance by? Why - would I Expect that I could ever - be satisfied?

We've guests in the side yard Whispering our names As you've made an exit God, what a shame Crossing over old adobe Near the hallway’s end Father I hate to wake you I need a Godsend Out back, near the wood stack She made it clear What I'd known in my heart Over a year Oh, it's unnerving Don't pretend Tell me I'm deserving I need a Godsend Crossing over old adobe Near the hallway’s end Father I hate to wake you I need a Godsend Oh, it's unnerving Don't pretend Tell me I'm deserving Be my Godsend

Giving up or giving in Either way, I'm feeling thin After all, where's the sin? In the end, we're carrion God, I’ve tried And I’ve tried Curse my pride Though it wasn't - ever my goal I wouldn't say I was opposed To dedicating - my better years To impressing a ghost God, I’ve tried And I’ve tried Curse my pride

Why - happiness eludes us Turns - everything around The chase - changes and confuses Even the head - carrying the crown Maybe - hitting the bottle will show How bright the gold glows No - finally I'm over Letting my body - run the show Take care - don't let your heart grow cold Hitting the bottom will show How bright the gold glows

Your back against the wall Are the words comforting? "Dear, I adore you, but I won't sing" You're shining, you shine too bright You're the only light You're shining, you shine too bright The only light I'm drowning - I don't know why It's something overgrown Togetherness feels alone I feel away now, when I'm at home Oh, don't act surprised I only wanted a love Now I - I'm all on my own I'm shining, I shine too bright I'm the only light I'm burning, I burn too bright The only light I'm drowning - and I don't know that I I can fight Don't know that I, wanna fight Oh, I know It's all for show Oh, I know I'm in tow Oh, I swear I know Your back against the wall Are the words comforting? "Dear, I implore you; don't say a thing"

Seems there isn't much that one can gain From staring into the back of a mirror Introspection never was your game And good advice was not what you wanted to hear But ask yourself: Who have I to blame? For putting my life on the shelf? Who have I to blame? Should I be blaming myself? So the wool was pulled over my eyes And I lost my penchant for trusting God I know how bad it hurts, my love What I got up front, you're getting all on the ---back end So ask yourself: Who have I to blame For putting my life on the shelf? Can I give you care If I don't care for myself? When I don't care for myself

I had a dream once of doing something big I wasn't always a man without ambition Oh, I was swallowed whole I was handed a page from someone else's book and then another, before I could even look Oh, It was all filled in When I have a daughter, I should never want That I had taught her how to be alone No, she'll have confidence in being her own.
8.
I can honestly say There didn't pass a day That I did not try Though the mountain, oh I swear Wouldn't have me breathe its air And the best laid plans go awry Could I believe? Should I try? Was relief a lie? Bury it deep. Push it aside No reprieve, just climb As a labyrinth with no walls Every obstacle: vitriol The ascent could be the fall Could I believe? Should I try? Was relief a lie? Bury it deep. Push it aside. No reprieve, just climb Could I believe? Should I try? Was relief a lie? Bury it deep. Push it aside. No reprieve, just climb Every day, every night Never once in sight The summit false at any height Fuck the climb

Bold and brazen lamb Never lacks confidence Do take care Be aware Don't you, don't you stray Far away from the flock Lest you should Be the prey Wait ‘til you get him alone Stay close, my dear Wait ‘til he's all alone And you can smell the fear That's when you'll have him undone And draw him near Far off from everyone Go on Young and careless child Lacking all common sense Do take care Be aware Don't judge all the world By what you know - please go slow Make it known Be your own Wait ‘til you get him alone Stay close, my dear Wait ‘til he's all alone And you can smell the fear That's when you'll have him undone And draw him near Far off from everyone Go on

She’d asked more - than I had cared I'd write her a song But I was a child being told That I had done something wrong And though she cried I never tried My beauty laid on the floor Much more than I could ask for My pillar, my full support Through tragedy and more She has her life I have my fear And so I wrote her a song That she'll never hear She'll be fine
