Dead man were you ever alive or was I just a seed
Buried deep inside some woman you wed?
Right before you crawled out of her bed
And crept down the hall

Did you think of me?
Did you even for a second hesitate in the doorway?
Its just something that Id like to know
Though Id still love you if you told me
That you just walked away

My God, what a world you love
Men bury their sons
And without thought
Just walk away

And my mothers heart breaks
Like the water inside of her
And my mothers heart breaks
Like the water inside of her

Dead man is it being high that makes you alive?
It makes you leave behind three boys and a wife in 89
And as the track marks inched their way up your arms
My mother taught my brothers and I not to call you daddy
But to call you father

And I believe there is something here to be learned of grace?
'Cause I can't help but love you
No I can't help but love you
Even with a heart that breaks

Like the promises that you made
Like the promises that you made
Like the promises that you made
Cause I can't help but love you
My God, what a world you love
