Track Name: The Poor and the Saint
Verse I
Another test into the void
Words exchanged from the outside
Another turn they won’t expect
The excitement has left us low
Held so tight till we all unfold

We aim to be more than ourselves
Differing tastes
Under most
A tip for the poor and the saint
Lifted away
My excuse

(Chorus 2)
But I wasn’t lost
They never know
Lie from the waist
Held down by words

Verse II
Build off this change we can’t ignore
Some advise other options
Trade on the line between it all
Why do we think what we’re told to?
I was a cause to stop and stare
Never long, never lost, effortless

And now the signs point to nowhere
Make sense of the peace we can trust in

This height we face isn’t all bad
Trust in yourself for the answer

I was a witness of the soul
I pray you put your trust in God
