Well have come to bring the sword
Quivering lips, do I blow the horn
To everything we could be and more
If I stand and lock or open the door
Is that wind blowing through the tops of trees?
Are the cars humming through the street?
The moment passes right through me
And the past is the only thing I see.

I wrestle with God all night long in my head,
And as hard as I try I cant forget what Jesus said.
Im grinding my teeth all night long in my head,
And my nerves are shattered again and again and again.

Sometimes at night on dark highways
I pull the car over and listen for trains
With my hair blown out the window pane
I rise voice, I scream and say;
".. I struggle with all the energy
That is powerfully inspired within me
With this I toil, for this I breathe,
[]

I wrestle with God all night long in my head,
And as hard as I try I cant forget what Jesus said.
Im grinding my teeth all night long in my head,
And my nerves are shattered again and again and again.

I wish I knew
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I wish I knew.

If you want me
Please come and find me
Cuz Ill be running
You know how Ill be running

    General CommentThis song was my first experience of Wild Sweet Wild. I'm very happy to say the Whale EP worth buying.

    I love the music.

    General CommentI've noticed several religious allusions in a bunch of their songs, most notably "Ten Dead Dogs". I read that this song is about the lead's (Preston Lovinggood) religious upbringing. I think this is exactly what it says -- a wrestle with God. He seems unsure of what he believes.

    "And try as hard as I try, I can't forget what Jesus said."
    "Please come and find me."

    It sounds like a man who is struggling with faith.

    General CommentHas anyone seen the music video?

    1) Why does the bird jump?
    2) What happens to him??
    3) Why does a whale come out of his mouth?
