Promises (2009)

There’s an angel in every dream  (Acts 10:3)
And a devil down every drain  (Matthew 15:11)
Knocked around between
And just trying to stay sane
Held up by your schemes
Anchored to the ground (Proverbs 16:9)
The middle never seems
Any bit profound but  (Hebrews 2:8b)

All your promises are like
Wind on the ocean
All your promises take me home
All your promises are
Gravity’s devotion  (Romans 8:28, 2 Corinthians 1:20)
All your promises take me home (John 14:1-3)

There’s a bullet for every chest
Waiting to get in (Hebrews 9:27)
And a doctor just trying his best
But he’s cutting way too thin (Ecclesiastes 9:3)
There’s a light there’s a choice there’s a fire
That you cannot sneak by  (Romans 1:20)
There are prophets in the desert babe
Holding dark deeds up high. (John 16: 8-9)
