Track Name: The Train Behind My House
you used to shake the ground
and the walls around my house
but i found comfort in the sound

and though you're just as loud
i barely hear you now
you're like the train behind my house

i used to kiss the ground
you walked behind my house
but now there's dust in my mouth

i used to know your word
believed the things i'd heard
but sometimes, lord, it seems absurd

take off your shoes
this is holy ground
take off your shoes
and walk the rusty rails behind my house
Track Name: You Might Not Be Right
no, i don't trust them, and i think that you're one of them
yeah, god's got plenty, but he can't get enough of them
they're taking taxes in the temple of jerusalem
and charging virgins for their stables in bethlehem

i know you think you're right
but you might not be right
i know you think i'm wrong
but i might not be wrong

i shouldn't be laughing, but i think it's hilarious
somebody died, but they're refusing to bury him
he took his sword and pulled a judas iscariot
but now they're waiting on some burning chariot

but you might not be right
you might not be right
you might not be right
you might not be right

a herd of pigs is lying dead in the water
i swear: all i wanted were the demons cast from my daughter
but now the congregation's angry at the useless slaughter
as if i should have taken her out back like a dog and just shot her

you might be right
yeah, you might be right
you might be right
but you might not be right
Track Name: Song 9
i believe what i believe 'cause i'm told to
you believe what you believe 'cause you're told to
now, who do you believe:
the ones who told me
or who told you?

i figured by now that you must have
found some god to put all your trust in
but even if he's real
his golden cathedrals
are rusting

it's hard finding a god

and i'd like to believe that he's risen
but bibles bend light like a prism
and although its rays
bounce all over the place
something's missing

so you could put god on a shelf
put all of your faith in yourself
but you're only a man
damn it, all of your plans
go to hell

it's hard being your own god

i believe what i believe 'cause i'm born to
you believe what you believe 'cause you're born to
and we go our own ways
but can we really
afford to?
Track Name: Logic Song / We Waited...
i no longer sit and wonder
i no longer sit and cry
i no longer need a father
i no longer wonder why

i no longer miss the water
i no longer watch the sky
i just don't know why you'd bother
i just cannot rationalize

we waited for a sign
we waited for a sign
something to change our minds
we waited for a sign

now who's the bigger fool:
we who sit and drool
and wait for god to bring us food
or scavengers like you?

i couldn't answer that
with the logic that i had
so i just had to shrug it off
and blame the god of love

and wait for a sign
i waited for a sign
something to change my mind
i waited for a sign

we waited for a sign

and we were cursed from the start
to having a heart
and not just a head
Track Name: Let There Be Light
god changed the way that you talk
now you talk more like him
god changed the way that i walk
now i walk with a limp

and i tasted honey and milk
from the land that he built
and i must admit i got ill
from the manna that fell

and i know you think that you're right
but you might not be right
and i know you think that i'm wrong
and i might be wrong
but i might not be wrong

you prayed to god for some rain
spent days on your face
but when finally the rain never came
i blamed god; you blamed your lack of faith

and i tasted honey and milk
it tasted like shit

he'll feel his way to my heart
like a room in the dark
but if he finds himself in my head
i hope he stays there instead

and if god knows i'm wandering in night
why won't he let there be light?
and if god knows i'm stumbling in night
why won't he let there be light?

let there be light
Track Name: Bearably Sad
i'm sad, yes, i'm sad
but i'm bearably sad
i'll wander the desert
i don't need no promised land

i don't need none
i don't need none
i don't need none, my lord

and i followed a pillar of cloud in the day
and at night, some fire came down, and it lit my way
but i'll get along without it - i've made it this far
yeah, years of eating manna can make a man so damn hard

and i'm sad, yes, i'm sad
but i'm bearably sad
i'll wander the desert
i don't need no promised land

i don't need none
i don't need none
i don't need none, my lord

i don't need none
Track Name: Birthright
you swore you would be like them
you swore it on your life
according to your birthright
three children and a wife

it's only natural

you saw him in some movie
his blood was flowing red
and on some cross somewhere
he laid his head

it's supernatural

your teachers gave you textbooks
that taught you not to love
you relied on your logic
you swore it was enough

it's only logical
it's only rational
it's perfectly reasonable
it's only logical

and soon you did dismiss him
you'd grown an adult mind
you pitied all us people
waiting on a sign

it's purely laughable
it's purely magical
it's supernatural
Track Name: The Lord Made Me Leave You
the lord made me leave you
you know i did not want to
but the lord made me leave you

so no, you cannot blame me
because he already forgave me
god already forgave me

and all my laws are written out in stone
trust in them and not in flesh and bone
don't throw it all away for love
you'll end up all alone
am i alone?

he said: "don't you be naive
just let her go: don't grieve her
she's just an unbeliever"

and if you try to argue
he says i'll do well to remind you
i only loved you 'cause i tried to

i only loved you 'cause i tried to

she says: "do we both really have to believe?
i'll sanctify you, or you could sanctify me
else were our children unclean
now they are holy

and if we get to heaven
together or separate
there'll be no wives or husbands

so really, what's the difference?"
Track Name: Train
the rocks are singing YHWH
the birds and beasts are mumbling
the train is coming our way
can't you feel the earth rumbling?
