"Instrument" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
I don’t want this Tinsel Glory
Or Empty Praise that I can’t carry
I want no more of this delusion
I just want to come back home to you again

Please make me your instrument
With eyes inside out I’ll never doubt this
The fruit will always show where the root is planted
I just want to come back home to you again
I just want to be free
I just want to be free
I just want to be free

    General Commentfeel like it's about his relationship with God
    "fruit will show where root is planted"... dont even care if im wrong... this is something that i come to, to remember that even great people such as Rocky can always come back to the love of God

    dont get "eyes inside out" line

    this song is easily his saddest and most beautiful on the album

    its amazing how he depresses me, yet raises hope, all in the same song
    no adjective is great enough for this man and his talents
