"Work in Progress" as written by Andrew James Perdomo, Cody Michael Payne and Bryan Alan Czap....
Tell them all that I'm a work in progress
Pour it out and I will stay out of the way
Fill it up, for what it's worth I'm harmless
Cut me down and I will live with what I take
I'm not saving you for myself
I want to see you and I want to say
"You're what's keeping me warm
You're what's keeping me safe"
Take my hands and keep them busy again
I think I'm losing my whole belief system
I get a lot of problems in my head sometimes
And I keep on forgetting
So take my hands and keep them busy again

Save me a place inside the quiet
I know hate because I see it in everyone around
And lately I've been losing truth
Faith, I have been losing too

Save me a place inside the quiet
I know hate because I see it in everyone around
And lately I've been losing truth
Faith, I have been losing too

Take it out on all your constant losses
Know it's only just a miracle to face
Even death can bring a man to life
When he sits right up
And still nothing tastes the same

Save me a place inside the quiet
I know hate because I see it in everyone around
And lately I've been losing truth
Faith, I have been losing too

Save me a place inside the quiet
I know hate because I see it in everyone around
And lately I've been losing truth
Faith, I have been losing too

Take my hands and keep them busy again
I think I'm losing my whole belief system
I get a lot of problems in my head sometimes
And I keep on forgetting
So take my hands and keep them busy again

    General CommentTell them all that I’m a work in progress. Pour it out and I will stay out of the way. Fill it up, for what it’s worth I’m harmless. Cut me down and I will live with what I take. I’m not saving You for myself. I want to see You and I want to say; “You’re what’s keeping me warm. You’re what’s keeping me safe.”

    Take my hands and keep the busy again I think I’m losing my whole belief system. I get a lot of problems in my head sometimes and I keep on forgetting. So take my hands and keep them busy again.

    Song MeaningSaw them play this song yesterday, and they mentioned it was about the Mountain Goats. Not sure how or where to take that.

    My InterpretationI see this song is about how the artist notices how much he is dealing with, the problems he is facing, and how much of a mess he is(all of this may just be depression); and he just can't do it. He is not capable with going through all of this alone, he'll end up not doing anything. "take my hands and keep them busy again"
    being that i've been raised with a christian background, I think he is addressing the Almighty, turning to God for help, because he can't deal with his mess alone. He's a work in progress and is relying on God to help him get out of it.
