Track Name: Once Before
I've been gone only days
I came home to a place
That I would call something less
Than what it was before I left

It turns out that what you know
Can just be bought or even sold
Like a watch or a guitar
Or a lover from the dark

Jesus, you ain't welcome here
No more
Unless your water turns to oil
And you can do without the poor

I've talked to God
Just once before
When I was young and lost a friend
And wondered what he took him for

I've been gone only days
I came home to a place
That I would call something less
Than what it was before i came

I was sure about the way
That I would live from day to day
I won't change, but I will die
With many others by my side

Jésus, you ain't welcome here
No more
And I hate to be the one
To break the news to someone's son

And I'm not the one to lay
The brick and mortar
But I'll go through the doggy door
We aren't people anymore

And i'm just ashamed as you
Who don't know what the fuck to do
We may be the ones to roast
but every demon has it's host
And we're the ones they need the most
