lyrics

Verse 1: JustMe
God even as the cries crawl out my mouth
parts of my mind die and fill with doubt
I want to shout but I can't muster up the shriek
I know that you are real and listening, I mean I think
I been weak for weeks forget the by the by
dancing cheek to cheek but we can't see eye to eye
Both a freak and geek so I will try and try
but I'm not too meek to speak so when I spy a lie
I rhyme with the passion of the minor prophets
that saw the injustices and told Israel "stop it"
We have made a mess I think it's time to mop it
but when the album pressed man nobody'll cop it
Not to shop it, but I think we need a demo
so we can see beyond the walls to the peak and meadow
But what do I know? man I'm just a wetto
that can't get off his hands and knees to tell the Lord hello

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?

Verse 2: Mouf Warren
Must've been one of them days we woke up on the wrong side
or maybe it's 'cause I loath myself and won't die
God knows I've tried and also that I've lied
I've apologized so many times, in hindsight I cry
I place myself out in the open so I can't hide
wishing you didn’t notice these flaws in my life
The hate I harbor is hopeless by a land slide
and frozen over is my heart and dark inside
Was it nature or nurture that made me use curse words like a second language? I'm not certain
Frustrated with the way things have worked out
I feel burnt out and weak and so out of focus
Today I stopped myself to think about the last time I prayed to God
and made the call 'cause I had no problems at all
I couldn’t so I knelt bedside hands folded
I drew a blank and couldn’t muster up the words to even quote this

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?

Verse 3: Reflex
Standing here with a sheepish grin
Got an audience with God, but can't bring myself to speak to Him
And if I could speak to anyone, it should be God
I should be offering prayers like I'm Goodie Mob
Trying to touch what I never touched before
See what I never seen before, but I woke to see the clouds
And thought somebody rewrote the script
Supposed to see the sun, what type of a joke is this?
But maybe God's bored of waiting for me
To move past all my flaws and shady deceit
All my striving, trying hard to change my ways
So I can earn grace that I couldn't earn in the first place
But to overstretch the metaphor
I've been knocking on Heaven's door, till knuckles are red and raw
And my words dry up when I'm baring my soul
'cause I'm not sure if I'm still on hold...can you hear me Lord?

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?
