Sliver

 

You come with your pictures and your postcards
to show me a sample of your courage
the things you brought with you to keep you humble
but it's one more example of your bondage

 

And the memories aren't warm
they're just a sliver from the past

you will carry in your flesh
when all is finally laid to rest
when the final judgment is passed
who will be
there with me?

 

When all the wisdom of the world is finally given
you drop your head down and stay hidden
it comes down from the mountains He is risen
but you turn and turn on your television

And the reruns aren't warm
they're just a sliver from the past
you will carry in your flesh
when all is finally laid to rest
when the final judgment is passed
will you be
there with me?

 

I've made mistakes I can't take back
I've picked up traits that traitors have
I can't overcome this overnight
Please overlook my oversights

And the memories aren't warm
they're just a sliver from the past
that you will carry in your flesh
when all is finally laid to rest
when the final judgment is passed
who will be
there with me?
