"What You're Given" as written by and Devin Sinha....
Born and left by the trunk of a willow tree
Half near death when the preacher came on me
As the shepherd finds lost sheep I've been lost since before my God knew me

Boy to man, not once was finding peace Some give their life for scraps
I'd take yours for a feast I grew strong, I rose above myself
And anybody in my way, they'd never live to tell

And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold

Met my Katherine singing in the hills
Simple notes but at once my heart was filled as the wolf finds lost sheep
On that hillside, Katherine, she found me

And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold

The shattered storm masks The crashing of the waves
Bodies shift and shake Hold our heads and pray 'til daylight breaks

Wade in the water Wade in the water children Wade in the water
I've been lost since before my God knew me

The sun sets in the mountains and the moon comes from the east
I slept beside my Katherine but the devil never sleeps
She took what little I had, left the blade deep in my side
By the trunk of the willow tree is where my old grave lies

And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold
