about

Recorded by Damon Smith in NYC and Philadelphia.

lyrics

I’m caught in the chapel
Strung out on mercy
Funny we both got chained to a bar seat
You were my teacher
My hypocrite preacher
Who seemed
So sincere

You were the stoner raising your king cup
Now I’m a loner who laughs as I’m lapping up
All this poison to drown out your voice in my ear
So clear

You hurt me forever
But you can’t recall
The child that you kindly
Pushed over the wall
Now you’re up there laughing
But I hope that you fall St. Paul

Sometimes I picture a life where you never
Fed me the mixture and promised me heaven if you were a stranger
I’d float past the danger and not
Pay the cost

You hurt me forever
But you can’t recall
The child that you kindly
Pushed over the wall
Now you’re up there laughing
But I hope that you fall St. Paul

40’000 years
40’000 years
40’000 years
Been so lost

40’000 years (wish our paths never crossed)
40’000 years (you don’t know what it cost)
40’000 years (now I feel)
So Lost
