"Church" as written by and Tyler Andrews Ben Haggerty....
Moms and pops, they used to take us to Church
Saying, "If you don't believe, then the plan don't work"
With the beatbox I got free on the pavement, I burst
Music brought me to my knees, I found faith in a verse
So dear Spirit, I know I gotta take a chance
And my mistakes and shortcomings finally made a man
I got some issues, I got problems, gotta make amends
I watch my daughter gigging in the kitchen to "The Safety Dance"
This shit right here, we call love
You can't put that into words, but feel that in your gut
The goosebumps on my arms, I watch the fallen sun
Kiss my daughter and say, "thank God" as I wake up
Oh, I know, yeah, I know now
And I'm up, but I'm aware that it goes down
Travelled 'round the globe, I needed to slow down (that's right)
And no better feeling riding 'round in my hometown

Hope I'm feeling this good when it's Monday morning
Been doing my own thing, can't say that I'm sorry
And I can only pray someday that we'll all be
More than just okay, we can be so free
And I can get fly with ya, ride with ya, shine with ya, yeah
I can get fly with ya, ride with ya, shine with ya, yeah

Oh my God, oh my God
No other person on this Earth could ever take my job
This my life, it was planned, I can't take it off
Bruised elbows, knees scraped, I learned to take a fall
My mistake, my mistake, karma waits, karma waits
But I'll be brave, I'll be brave
The pain stings more than I could take, I could take
I learn more from loss than the gain, than the gain
New state of mind, I feel like taking my time
And that laidback reclines, still pushing that '85
Like windows down, city passing by, like a timelapse
The weatherman be tripping, so that ceiling got that white rag, ay
We came so far, just some kids in the city trying to make some art
Leave some change in the fountain, hope to make my mark
You see I was given a role, never played my part

Hope I'm feeling this good when it's Monday morning
Been doing my own thing, can't say that I'm sorry
And I can only pray someday that we'll all be
More than just okay, we can be so free
And I can get fly with ya, ride with ya, shine with ya, yeah
I can get fly with ya, ride with ya, shine with ya, yeah

I can have a life to, I have life today
I rely on that constant communication with my higher power
More so than anybody these days
And I realized, that that's kinda all I need
And then, of course, y'all appear, right
Y'all appear, things appear, and situations appear
And I realize, that's God working through me
If I allow myself to be that vessel
