Hearts aren’t really our guides.
We are truly alone.
‘Cause God ain’t up in the sky,
Holding together our bones.

Remember we used to speak?
Now I’m starting to think
That Your voice was really my own,
Bouncing off the ceiling back to me.

God, this can’t be.
God, this can’t be.
God, could it be that all we see is it?
Is this it?
Is this it?

Won’t you come down, heaven?
Won’t you come down?
Won’t you cut through the clouds?
Won’t you come down?

Won’t you come down heaven?
Won’t you come down?
Won’t you cut through the clouds?
Won’t you come down?
Come down.
Come down.
Come down.

Oh, my heaven, why do you have doors to close?
Do you have clouds to stop His voice?

Oh, my heaven, why do you have doors to close?
Do you have clouds to stop His voice on the way down?

And God, this can’t be,
And God, this can’t be. 
And God, could it be that all we see is it?
Is this it?

God, does grace reach to this side of madness?
'Cause I know this can’t be
The Great Peace we all seek.

Won’t you come down, heaven?
Won’t you come down?
Won’t you cut through the clouds?
Won’t you come down?

Did your clouds stop His voice?
And, brother, have you found the Great Peace that we all seek?
You say, “Take a look around.
If there’s a God, then He must be asleep.”
God must be asleep.
God must be asleep.
God must be asleep.
God must be asleep.

As Cities Burn - The Widow

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?
It’s just something that I’d like to know
Though I’d still love you if told me
That you just walked away

My God, what a world you love
Where men bury their sons
And without thought just walk away

And my mother’s 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
As the track marks inched their way up your arm
My mother taught my brothers and I not to call you daddy
But to call you father

But 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
The promises that you made
'Cause I still love you

My God, what a world you love
