lifeblood: songs: lyrics: crying in the wilderness


sent you a thousand words
but they only added up to nothing
so i'm calling them back
while i beg to the honor among thieves
to hold me

do you have to be the rolling train
(that rolls through my sleep )
do you have to be the wounded bird
(that won't let me be)
do you have to be the only voice i hear
crying in the wilderness

wrote you a thousand songs
but not one of them was for singing
cause i just get it all wrong
man i guess i really just should have been listening

do you have to be the rolling train
(that rolls through my sleep )
do you have to be the wounded bird
(that won't let me be)
do you have to be the only voice i hear
crying in the wilderness

was that really me back when
i was just a simpleton
i stepped to it or i blew it
it was all confusing then
a petty officer of failure
just a lackey for the jailer
a hermit and a horder
just a handsome deserter
just a handsome deserter

i prayed to god they'd let me keep it
and i prayed to god they'd take it away
and i prayed to god they'd let me hide it
and save it for a rainy day

do you have to be the rolling train
(that rolls through my sleep )
do you have to be the wounded bird
(that won't let me be)
do you have to be the only voice i hear
crying in the wilderness
crying in the wilderness

was that really me back when
i was just a simpleton
i stepped to it or i blew it
it was all confusing then
a petty officer of failure
just a lackey for the jailer
a hermit and a hoarder
just a handsome deserter

crying in the wilderness
crying in the wilderness
crying in the wilderness
crying in the wilderness
