Sunset skyline out my window
Stained carpet underfoot
Ain’t that the way that it goes
We live in the bad and long for the good

Down here the well has been poisoned
Now everything’s dying
Some sell forgiveness on gospel tv shows
And I wonder why anyone’s buying
Cause the truth is a hard sell
For it burns out the lies

And I tear hard this brittle bone
And I drink deep this wine
I live rich on the meat of this table
Cause it’s here where I can find
The grace of a saviour
The face of a lover
The abscence of what I fear
I’m not alone, for here I’ve found my home

I’ve been hiding like an ostrich
My head underground
And all my dirty feathers all across town
Lucky vampire has no mirrors
Me, I’m scared of what I’d see
I long for a last time with last times
Isn’t that why You died for me?
I bow my head weeping
I pray I’ll raise it to find You

And I tear hard this brittle bone
And I drink deep this wine
I live rich on the meat of this table
Cause it’s here where I can find
The grace of a saviour
The face of a lover
The abscence of what I fear
I’m not alone, for here I’ve found my home

Cause I can think too much
I can think you away
Now that I’ve crashed hard
Can I see how you save?
There’s a small cloud in the distance
So I’ll keep on walking
Til Your grace sings so loud
I can’t hear myself talking

And I tear hard this brittle bone
And I drink deep this wine
I live rich on the meat of this table
Cause it’s here where I can find
The grace of a saviour
The face of a lover
The abscence of what I fear
I’m not alone, for here I’ve found my home
