Track Name: Nervously Counting Rosary Beads
Hey little lamb now
why do you sleep
all day, all night
as you wait
for his hands
to pick you up
and keep you safe
unbroken

Hey little lamb now
count all your needs
on your beads
nervously
the shepherd
has left the stage
leaving an open ended play

We hold you so high
don’t we?
with our skulls to the sun
we wait for Him
to come
as we hold up
in our minds
hoping He’ll find
all of our lies

are we falling?

stare at the sun
burn out your eyes
hold on to that dream
bury it alive

Hallelujah!
ghost king now forlorn
Salvation!
our souls are so worn
semper fi

Hallelujah!
as we fill with doubt
Salvation!
wearing our knees out
semper fi

Let us let you go
and free our minds
from worry and regret

Sun will rise
without you
Sun will rise
without us
