"The Spiritual" as written by and Ben Thornewill....
Some walk quiet, some walk loud
Sometimes people yell, but they don’t know what they’re yelling about
I’ve said things I didn’t mean, but I’d already said them out loud
Forgive me if you can find out how

You could rise, or you could sink
Some keep filled up with the secrets that they think they need
Oh what ever would the others think,
That you’re human, like the rest of us weak?

Lord above me, to my knees bring me
It’s a call I don’t often make, this is the rarest of pleas
Fair enough, again you got the best of me
Now let me go,
Let me go in peace.

I should have left, but for you I stayed
It’s that part of me that likes it when it burns that way
I put my finger time and time through an open flame
Going slowly so the burn reminds me
That we might have kissed a bit too soon
I could feel what was coming and I didn’t mean to hurry you
I just knew that time would find our fingers linked through and through
Forgive me, I’m human too

Lord above me, to my knees bring me
It’s a call I don’t often make, this is the rarest of pleas
Fair enough, again you got the best of me
Now let me go,
Let me go in peace.

I walked the night as the rain turned to sleet then to ice
The roads became cruel and left me to my vices
So I drank, stood, stared and then walked out into the street
Singing “come on cars, slide and take me!”

Lord above me, to my knees bring me
It’s a call I don’t often make, this is the rarest of pleas
Fair enough, again you got the best of me
Now let me go,
Let me go in peace.
No, let me go,
Let me go in peace.
