lyrics

Verse:

Hospital beds,
weary heads
some things you can
never change.
Fumbled prayers,
awkward stairs,
I'm watching life
slowly change.

Chorus:

So, I'll ask.
Where were you
when they needed you the most?
You fed the hungry,
healed the blind.
But right now you're
nowhere to be found.

Verse:

Gunshots ring
far from home.
A boy must become a man.
Silent prayer,
Sirens wail.
His life turned
upside down.

Repeat chorus:

Verse:

Empty bottles,
bloodshot eyes.
The vice of a broken man.
Desperate prayers,
overdose,
I cried out your name.

Repeat chorus:
