about

Breaking the cycle of abuse.

lyrics

Son, you know I’ve got this thirst in me
Hurts worse than the holes in his hands
Despite my pain, I ain’t ever claimed myself to be
Enough to pay for the fall of man

We got the world and our world gone and hated me
That judge don’t fear his maker nor man
I can heed His will and I’m less afraid of the cup
Than I am of the bottle drying up on me

To hell with my eyes
I need them coins for a drink

To hell with my eyes
Where I'm bound I don’t want to see

Old man, brought you what you said you needed so damn bad
Not much more than we ever had
Dug through cupboards full of cobwebs and jars of nails
Ain't no wonder where I am

God has always seen fit to knock me with grace square on the chin
With a righteous scowl and a drop cast hand
I swear, I have never wanted less than to relive
The pissed on life of a fallen man.

To hell with my eyes
I need them coins for a drink

To hell with my eyes
Along with the rest of me

Bridge:
His love is gonna stay
through the end of your days

His love is gonna stay
Past the end of your days

But his lovin’ you this way
It don’t last you to your grave

Old Man, I’ll pour this out for you
I’ll empty out for you
You’ve been fathering some lies along the way
Lies imply some kind of truth

What’s the matter, boy, now, don’t you want none?
That’s alright, it’s spent and I think I’m done

To hell with my eyes
I need them coins for a drink

To hell with my eyes
Where I'm bound I don’t want to see

Hell with my eyes
And I’ll pour it out now for my kin
Hell with my eyes
And I’ll sing a proud Amen
