Lesser Known Saint

07. Tough Love: Judge Mathis Style

From the album New Years Project

Lyrics

Gone – Seven shakes of tail for three is one, five for none
Crying on cedar falls to spy old friends gone
But you were never one who’d take my call
After I’ve run and left you out on the floor in the hall

And yet you stay

You should have risen
You should have thought to take shape
You should have told me I was done forever

Cowrie shells and soft light
A trip will make my sins right
For my love

Rise up and stand for nothing
Phoenix shining on your eye
My hand tasting of my fondness for you

Scraping away your face
Worthless beggar

Status without authority
Ration your right to liberty
Free will is always at risk under tyrants

Focus skewed to see through
Patch up and rebuild
Cowrie shells and soft light
A trip will make my sins right

For you, my love
