"Sassafras" as written by and Andrew Trick Larry Williams....
This is the faith complex,
Where all it takes is another step so we can then step again
It's not all about the numbers
This is the faith complex,
Try not to write another disappointing letter to integrity,
Only go faster when you've stopped and thought,
Only go slower when you've learned of wisdom.

Everything is a question of goodwill,
But we're too busy delivering answers with arrogance,
Isn't it funny how ones compassion diminishes when his or her own perils rise?

Perils Rise
It's not all about the numbers,
What should we ask for?
Who should we look to if all we know is burning bridges?
Don't speak to me like I'm a stranger.

Turn your thoughts to the roots,
As we've all been caught up in the branches.

With roots above and branches below,
Don't run if you don't know your walk,
This is the faith complex,
This is a memoir to friends persisting.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he's saying

    "This is the faith
    This is the faith complex"

    Thats just the beginning of the wrongness.

    General CommentSince the site won't let me post a correct one of my own, I'll post the correct lyrics on here, please cap the first "s" of "Sassafras" too, that reeeealllly bothers me.

    This is the faith
    This is the faith complex

    Where all the (?) takes another step
    So waking them

    Step again

    It's not all about the numbers
    It is not all about the numbers

    This is the faith, this is the faith complex

    Try not to rely on another disappointing and untrue
    (?)

    Why'd it go faster when you stopped and thought
    Why'd it come slower
    A new point of wisdom

    Everything is a question
    A con-wheel
    But we're too busy
    Turn him around
    Hits us with, well I can't

    As I am finding out
    I've compassion
    To banish as one
    As are our own peril threats

    Peril Frights

    It's not all about the numbers
    It is not all about the numbers

    What should we ask for
    Who should we look to
    If all we know is burning bridges
    Don't speak to me like I'm a stranger
    Turn your thoughts to the roots
    As we've all been caught up in the branches
    With roots above and branches below

    Don't run if you don't know your walk
    This is the faith complex
    This is the rumor defense persisting
    This is the faith complex

    General CommentUhmmm....no I didn't. There were a couple words I couldn't decipher, but no mistakes. You tried to fix it and made some though, like how you added an "our" that isn't in the song.
    And it's peril "threats" the first time. I can cleary hear the thhh sound. And I do have a right to be frustrated, I was going to post correct lyrics to this song by myself, but I couldn't because you had already posted an incorrect version.
