the grass don't cut my feet
so i walk on the concrete & look for broken glass
& the air don't burn my throat
so i fill my lungs with smoke from another cigarette
& if the words won't let you know
i should just bury all my hope & find a home again
god if i had one

well, they claimed to see the lord
but i considered him a lure, & i am so afraid
'cause when i don't hear you speak
i break off in retreat & i forget to pray
once i asked you for the answer
but the answer was you didn't give a damn
god if i gave one

even walking has its season
& my reasons aren't what they used to be
my steps are all off-kilter
& i'm breaking off the filter when i breathe
i knew the words to all your songs
but the truth it sounded wrong in a tired melody
if i could make one
i'd make a new one

so hallelujah
i would not sleep here if i could


from You, the Devil, & Me EP, released September 11, 2010
