Aha
Uhm
1-2

Now, 'round here they sing broken hymns
The prayers flow better when their soaked in gin
The amp's dusty and sits in the corner
By a bartender thatll pickpocket your heart
And a jukebox thatll steal your quarter
Bartender, please give me a confession
Exchange fear for courage in the form of a well drink
Theres a heavy current, got a long way to swim
Closed the Bible a while ago, I need some shots for this sin
Hail Mary, come with me, feel like Pac when it hits
Got some fire in my belly and a riot in the gut
Bushmills for a bandaid, the sweet taste of blood
Then I might actually feel something if I dont cover it up
Watch their faces, familiar places
Even if they haven't left it by the booth that they stayed in
The motel next door, a sign that reads vacant
And a truth thats so strong Id be a fool not to chase it
But yea, Im a fool and I stay here
Hope these problems drown themselves, I die in wait here
One more, four more, f*ck it! a night cap
Service starts at 5 tomorrow and Ill be right back

Underneath this fragile frame
Lives a battle between pride and shame
But Ive misplaced that sense of fright
This crown of thorns is perched atop my spine
But listen closely as I testify
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night

I read the Bible but I forgot the verses
The liquor store is open later than the church is
Pure by their imperfections, everything is burning
To hell with the confessions, oh the Lord immerses
Blessed in holy water, the sin of Holy Father
Have you ever smelled flesh that sweats out Monarch vodka
11 AM in the morning and you cant get it off you
Comment to the preacher but its like the pastor isnt talking
Until the store opens I can read up on that doctrine
The people close to me say Im in need of a doctor
Think that I got a problem but these are not apostles
This the drink of the Lord, thats according to my gospel
Open to interpretation, if youre judging it I dont want it
I got sins that scole like my throat when I hit the bottle
And Im sinking and thats why I keep on drinking
I need a refill, far more than once every weekend
Sweet Jesus, Im getting amnesia
Shaking til Id get a taste, my faith is having seizures
Every time I walk away and try to leave it
Every time I walk away and try to leave it

Wouldnt miss it for the world
Baptized in my vices and the bar is my church
Traded my artist and I pawned off the easel
Spend it all searching for God at the neon cathedral

Wouldnt miss it for the world
Baptized my vices and the bar is my church
Traded my artist and I pawned off the easel
Spend it all searching for God, neon cathedral
Neon cathedral

Underneath this fragile frame
Lives a battle between pride and shame
But Ive misplaced that sense of fright
This crown of thorns is perched atop my spine
But listen closely as I testify
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night

Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night
