Our Own Ebb & Flow

lyrics

I drove by the cemetery wondering, who will write our eulogies? Because I’ve been having some trouble lately believing that god is more than winter whistling in these trees. I’ve been counting my blessings carefully wondering, who will come to satisfy this wait? And I’ve been humming Hail Mary’s safely hoping someone out there is going to save us from this rain. But sunrise, sunset I feel the same.
The ins and outs, the hides and seeks of shaky faith and my modern belief, that for right now there’s nothing that I need worth writing home pretending I cant see.
I’ve been wondering, how will you understand why I’ve been falling fast from Heaven’s holy hands? It’s just the centuries of inconsistencies in the way we think that’s wearing me thin. We weren’t born afraid, we were made this way.
The ins and outs, the hides and seeks of shaky faith and my modern belief, that for right now there’s nothing that I need worth writing home pretending I cant see, that its make believe, and we’re all we need.
