The cops showed up late
to make sure you're ok
and I slipped out the back
You always were the best
at explaining away
the weight of the curse I attract
I'm restless
like a compass
just before the earth splinters and burns
The thicker the skin, the slower the sin
is unwrapped to reveal all the trouble you're in

So come down, from the mountain
and assure me of the way up the slope
I'm buried beneath the pile of debris
that was left in the wake of your flood
Surrender
was never like me
I'm as stubborn as the last boy you had
But then providence cast, a shadow at last
and forgiveness rushed into my throat

Here, in the palm of my hand
The tale of an angry young man
Who discovered an old path to love
Here, in the wake of your flood
Yes, discovered an old path to love
Here, in the wake of your flood
Surrender
Yes, surrender
Yes, surrender
