lyrics

Staring into the void
Through a foggy fisheye lens
Wearing the corner of the room
My knees are at rest in the sockets of my skull
Of my skull

It's pretty far from cozy
But hey, at least it's home
I have to get by cheaply
If I expect to get by full
To get by full

What did it do to your soul?
To wring out my spirit
And stamp out my hope
All in the name of the Lord?

How does it pull
On a warm mother's heart
To harrow her son
Like innards from a gourd
Spilled out on the floor

“It's the way that we rise
As bread in the oven.”
But can’t the dough feel
The fire in love?

"This hurts me more
Than it ever hurt you."
It’s a shame you can’t recall
The tears of your youth

But there’s more to suffering
Than heartache and pain
In our journey to Jesus
This ride’s not in vain

What’s done is done
There isn’t any change to meet
You did what you knew
But you loved me incomplete

Like you I'll try to love my children,
To lead them up that hill
But when I fail as all of us do

I’ll remember to pick up my cross and follow you
I’ll remember to pick up my cross and follow you
