You could recover with this respite, but you're living beyond your means
These comforts won't lift your fallacy

Live it up larger than your life, ‘till you're less than what's left

This is so far beyond forgiveness, but you can't even see the price to convince yourself you're righteous
A beginning that leaves you blind to the consequence
Forgetting you're still a child in atrophy
When will you wake up and see the answers aren't clearly defined?

This world's not worth its weight in words

There's no use, there's no reason
There's no use being a man about it
There's no use being a man

You tried to swallow your pride, but you've bitten off more than you can chew and swallowed your dignity with it
This will leave you with nothing but a white-knuckled prayer and clenched currency

Looking back on your life, how will you redeem yourself in the eyes of your maker?
This world won’t give you what you're owed

This world's not worth its weight in words

There's no use being a man


from The Fragility of Circumstance, track released December 22, 2016
