Recorded on September 11th, 2010, using Alex's new acoustic. Background vocals were sung through Jessiah's Twin Reverb, looped with the RC-20XL, then recorded and played back with a huge EIKI 5030 dictation machine.


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?"
