Lyrics
Woke up next to the king
Got up, gonna fix me some things
And it makes me sick how I can't trust him
No I can't trust him

Said the bottom of his belly
That's where he would keep me
Christ Jesus
As I'm floating
And you get a brick and you drop it down on me
Christ Jesus
Have you seen us
Down on our hands and knees
And tell us what's the reason

Like a hawk that's hung in the sky
A hard-on when I die
And you passed away
And that horizon never came
No, it never came
It's the time of the week no one sees but me
Christ Jesus
As I'm drowning
And I struggle to breathe
It's your face I don't see
Christ Jesus
Please don't leave us
If in peace you'll keep us
Well then you should have believed us

Please let me inside
And hear out my desire
'Cause soon I may die
Yes one day I will die
I'll get eaten by the rust
You cremate and breathe the dust
And I'll weaken your lungs
And I'll bite off your tongue

Christ Jesus
Please don't leave us
Down on our hands and our knees
Or I'll never believe, no
Christ Jesus
As I'm drowning
And I struggle to breathe
It's your face I don't see
Christ Jesus
