i was bored so i called upon my cousin
to dig into a river
as if it could give us something
when the feet sink in the mud
and it became my only friend
now i see the dying
as if it already happened

i know what happens next
i know i know
i know what happens next

i was called on by the lord
to witness a ceremony
of a still-born life in a still-born town
so i called upon my courage
and walked up to the church doors
but i felt so separated
from the family i was raised in
singing songs singing songs singing songs
to try and dam the tears
that were the only honest option

i know what happens next
i know i know
i know what happens next

take me to the mountain
take me to the canyon
i don't see any difference
i could sing the same thing at any elevation
where is my god?

take me to the desert
drop me in the ocean
there ain't one lick of difference
if it were a drowning or a dehydration
something has died

toss me to the treetops
dig me in the dirt
i can't escape his right hand
god is in the high place
also in the low
now i know

so take me to montana
or leave me in wisconsin
there ain't one lick of difference
i could sing thing at any elevation

toss me to the treetops
dig me in the dirt
i can't escape his right hand
the devil's in the streets
god is on the footpath
i just now learned
