recorded live at 2nd Baptist


Pick me up off the pavement
Meet me at the back door
Hit the lights, don't say my name
And conquer and conquer some more
I'm a shark in the water
Well aware where you hide
Leave a message on top of the table
And get on outside

Don't you hear me calling
Won't you hear my plea
Don't you hear me calling, darling
I try but I can't leave you be

We are good people
No beast for a field
Oh when will the people
Learn to hunt for a meal
Well you're doing alright
But your aim is too high
No mission in the mercy
No virtue to standing in line

I'm home, you can't fight with a ghost so I'm told
