Steps up to your house carry me in give me a home,
I am your sheep cast among goats.
Read me my name.

Dear, drink from this cup call to the hunter when you are lost
He is your God, he gives you life
and taketh away.
Heaven, are you inside giving hope to the lost,
baptizing them in water and baptize in flame?

Sons give up your land, give up your love,
your children will grow up to be tall up to be strong
and carry your name.

Dear drink from this cup call to the hunter when you are lost
he is your god he gives you life
and taketh away.
Heaven, are you inside giving hope to the lost,
baptizing them in water and baptize in flame?
(We don't have what we don't know, we don't have what we don't know...)
You don't carry me
You won't carry me
Yes I see the spirit move take a body make it new
so take my sins and make them clean so I can do it all again.

    General CommentThis is my favorite by Archaeology to date.
    There are a lot of mixed feelings in this song. Wanting to trust God, but afraid of his mysterious sovereignty ("he gives you life and taketh away"). Kind of demanding at times ("give me a home" "read me my name"), but also freely accepting of gifts and love (which are also shrouded in mystery--the cup, is it his wrath or his love? if the lost one calls to the hunter will he give life or take it?), and also refusing gifts ("we don't have what we don't know" i.e. the holy spirit). Believing in the removal of sins, but also wary of stumbling into it again.
