Shut the old mill down
So many good jobs went south
They put a prison in it's place
So many good lives contained
Well have you seen them all
Rising for the alter call
Taste of heaven the taste of hell
When they're never going to make it out
They're never going to make it out

You are my brother
This much I know
I want to let your goodness show
You are my sister as I have seen
I want to let your goodness breathe
You are my family although I fought
You gave me all the good I've got
So I built an alter unto itself
You're never going to let me out
You're never going to let me out

I got some good plans of my own
Set off to let my future grow
Like a good weed that I let
Take over my garden plants
So one day I dug it up
Washed my hands and shaved and cussed
And it was then that I felt
Your goodness is my only help
Your goodness is my only help

So when I die will you dig my grave
The only place I want to lay
Is right by you in the shade
A million nights a million days
But there's a lifetime in between
I want to let my goodness free
I feel my nature it goes away
I will not keep I will not stay
I will not keep I will not stay

Yes I've loathed for things unseen
Yes I've loathed for things unseen
Yes I'm unsure of so may things
Unsure of so may things
I will not keep I will not stay
I will not keep I will not stay
Oh goodness won't you come my way
Another place another day

Well yes I know that I've loved this world
Yes I know I've loved this world
And yes I know I've loved this world
Yes I know I've loved this world
And yes I know I've loved this place
Yes I know I've loved this place
And yes I know I've loved your face

Oh goodness won't you come my way
Oh goodness don't you fade away
Goodness don't you fade away
I will not keep I will not stay
Goodness don't you fade away
Oh goodness don't you fade away
My only goodness don't you fade away
My only goodness don't you fade away
