Lord, I Know We Don't Talk - Lyrics

In a motel room with the Bible out
Combing scriptures for answers about
What's happening now

'Cause I can't believe my eyes
And I just don't trust my ears
But I've heard a man can always come find
Some solace here

And Lord, I know that we don't talk
Often at all anymore
But desperate folks do desperate things
So I'm stapling this note to your door

Please turn the ship around
And lock the course in place
And keep the train tracks nailed to the ground
Or pull the emergency break

'Cause I've lost my faith in man
Just like I once lost faith in you
And I've been covering all kinds of ground
Thinking hard 'bout what else I could lose

And I know how I look
To come crawling back
Acting like you owe me proof
But this is bigger than me
I think it's bigger than you too

So if this gets to you
Yeah, if you ever come home
Just know I won't be awaiting the postman
I will not be glued to my phone
I'll know a change has come
I'll know that you exist

When all our bombs stop exploding
And when all of those landmines are stripped
And we stop blowin' up strangers' houses
And making orphans of innocent kids

And people stop thinking
The world's theirs for the taking
'Cause your world once told them it is

'Til then, I'm gonna shake my head
I'm gonna bite my tongue
When people tell me
"Have faith and be patient
We're waiting for God to show up"

Yeah, 'til then
It's one more skeptical song
And I'll be glad as hell
If you come and prove me wrong
