about

when I was on tour in 2012 this is what was going on in my head.

lyrics

traveling through the rough-hewn land of an endless state
hoping for reprieve from the dust that pervades my gaze
I can't seem to focus my mind on anything
apart from moving and to see another day

everyday is a different life in a different place
certain paths I took with ease now a maze of dismay
it's been so long since I've seen a familiar face
but I'll hold on 'til I can have communion again

baptize my soul in the thirsty earth
bless my body in the dirt
acquaint myself with sin and the ways of the world
bless my body made from the dirt

leaves on the ground mark the time for decay
deciduous nature's call for me to move with the change
I went back home and found everything in it's place
except for me and the wave that I create

baptize my soul in the thirsty earth
bless my body in the dirt
acquaint myself with sin and the ways of the world
bless my body made from the dirt
