"Fisher of Men" as written by and M. Ward....
When you're absolute beginners, it's a panoramic view
From her majesty Mount Zion, and the kingdom is for you

When you tumble upon that valley
Shark or sparrow line the stairs
When the arrows start descending, then they scatter everywhere
On a bookshelf in Caledonia sits a map of passageways
Best to stumble upon Mount Zion to behold the natural gates

They say the original sinners never felt a drop of pain
Until that second in the garden, then they felt it each and every day
So draw back your bows, you hunters who have never felt that plain
All the absolute beginners, they are safe in the shade for today

When you're absolute beginners, it's a panoramic view
From her majesty Mount Zion, and the kingdom is for you

    General CommentThere's a surprising amount of quasi-religious songs on 'hold time',
    and although i'm not religious, I'm still certain that it will be the best album of 2009

    it's just soo fucking good.

    General Commenti think this song is so simple but so beautiful expecially since (in my opinion) it talks about the mysterious ways that Jesus works in our lives :)
