for Devin.

Now look at me, don't lie
Crossing my heart, I won't cry
We won't have to stay but for a while
No one has to know why, why
It's just, well...do you believe in God?

We're fine, this'll all blow by
Start the car, we've got a 4 hour drive
He said himself, "I'll see you in a while."
Dangling keys in rhythm with the tires
So then, do you believe in God?

Pray when he went to sleep
Rays through the colored glass
What a waste of down time
In bed where he wants to be
Laid the covers down
Left to dabble alone all night

In the southern breeze the sky is opening
but the clouds, they seemed harmless
There's a tidal wave reaching all the way
to the city lights downtown

Through the door, turned down the lights,
the shadows trace and the heart excites.
The form is there, but it's compromised,
a childish hope fades with the changing faces.
Is doing this a way to cope?

Under shrouded lives it's the mothers who call and remind us what living is for.
But the lonely eyes of the loveliest soul have lost their sight and broken us all.

Come and lament the famous fools
A man who has changed this whole room
Adding to a million makes one more who proves
that no one will answer why those 24 years have gone
