NewTattoo

 

18 years and building

Sharing all that can be for two

After our hair has turned completely silver

You're still perfect like a new tattoo

 

A cheap can of beer in one hand

aGrasped your other hand and haven't let it go

Sometimes you sting me like a new tattoo

 

Experiences compressing

Years pass by like weeks

Chapters written faster than cars drive down our street

If I could start it over, I'd walk over the same line

Especially the star on my arm from 1999

 

A little sleep and a couple of lifetimes later

Our kids just prove that it was true

No matter how you think you look this evening

You still look like a new tattoo

 

18 years and building

Sharing all that can be for two

Now that our hair has turned completely silver

You will always be as perfect as a new tattoo

Zion is Burning

Smell the fire, it looks like Zion is burning

Won’t have to explain to my kids that we were silent

When the bad guys came into town we stood our ground

Some things in life are clear as day

 

Crowds of hate together under a banner

Ahistorical fiction written out of the anger

When the bad guys came to town we locked arms and gathered around

Some things in life are clear as day

 

Flames are rising, heads beaten and bloody

Wish there was an end but bigotry is a virus

When the bad guys come back around, again we’ll smash them down

With songs of love and that are clear as day

We’ll shine a light and they’ll run away

We will hold hands, we’ll give them hell to pay

Smell the fire, Zion is burning
