lyrics

Mapping the man as a whole
scratching the soul
cutting, improving, removing the old
Peel back the callus to see
my father's resilience was passed down to me

Suffer the mood to employ
mimic the joy
stuffing your pockets and chasing the void
choke out the shimmering voice
that sings to the virtue of living defeated

Feed me a heart
Find me a head
Search in the dark
I'm down never dead
Feed me a heart
Find me a head

Peddling soul's nothing new
wisdom hunts youth
motives like scarves in the spokes of the truth
fame is a fresh ingenue
that the unwitting chase while ignoring her graces

Envy's ambition is time
let me have mine
sifting the insights
from first drafts that rhyme
Now that my heroes are gone
I'm free to embrace all my fraudulent faces

Feed me a heart
Find me a head
Search in the dark
I'm down never dead
Feed me a heart
Find me a head

Are you good?
we were clumsy in the art of letting go
but God knows we learned how
On the beach
faded pictures of ourselves from years ago
I wonder what those kids are doing now

Feed me a heart
Find me a head
Search in the dark
I'm down never dead
Feed me a heart
Find me a head

Suffer the mood you employ
Mimic the joy
I'm down but not dead
I'm down but not dead
