Upstanding Man

lyrics

Careful now, you must take care
That’s my father’s cross hidden under there
Please tread lightly with your tounge
I know your not trying to hurt anyone
My heart’s a liability, when it’s betraying me
It’s a secret judge, it’ll come between us
I want a place to stand, because I want to be an upstanding man
It’s an old idea

On the line pass it on
See the father give the shadow to the son
Holy father holy sun
It’s just a ball of gas, there’s a million of them
My mind’s a liability, when it’s outthinking me
It’s the one to blame, it’ll put out the flame
I want a place to stand, because I want to be an upstanding man
It’s an old idea

Oh lord, I am lost
If it’s true you paid the cost
Then why am I lost, why are you my cross?
If you paid the cost, why are you my cross?
Why am I lost? Why are you my cross?
If you paid the cost, why are you my cross?
