"Back to Gray" as written by and Hutch Harris....
Hail mary
Heaven willing
Let a blanket
Cover everything

Hold us high
Hold aside
Mother don't let us die before the springtime

I don't need any love
'cause I've got the elements
Electric light
Electric license
I can add it all up
One plus one

Hail mary
Heaven willing
Let a blanket
Cover everything

Hold us high
Hold aside
Mother don't let us die before the springtime

I don't need any love
'cause I've got the elements
Electric light
Electric license
I can add it all up
One plus one

And your face fits
In the frame so
Like your footprints
In the fake snow
Sky sight now
A strobe light
Black to white then
Black to white and
Black to white then
Back to gray again

Hail mary
Heaven willing
Let a blanket
Cover everything

Hold us high
Hold aside
Mother don't let us die before the springtime

I don't need any love
'cause I've got the elements
Electric light
Electric license
I can add it all up
One plus one

And your face fits
In the frame so
Like your footprints
In the fake snow
Sky sight now
A strobe light
Black to white then
Black to white and
Black to white then
Back to gray again

And if you do not mind
I will not stay
If you can climb
I will find a way

If you do not mind
I will not stay
If you can climb
I will find a way

Hail mary
Heaven willing
Let a blanket
Cover everything

I can add it all up
One plus one

    General Comment"Hail Mary heaven willing..."

    If that doesn't stick your head, you're probably not listening correctly.
    The Thermals blow my mind. I love the voice because it brings emotions through lyrics not cheesy vocal tricks.
