Lyrics

Give It Up

Written By: Craig Birchfield

Well this head will get me somewhere
Be it higher education or scraping a living off the ground
And these hands will play this music
To be played in front of no one or in front of crowds

I already know
Beggars can't be choosers
And I already know
You use it or you lose it
But most of all I know
I don’t have to figure it out

All I've got to do
Is give it up now

The mistakes I've made are fleeting
As long as I am learning to grow up
And now they’re next to useless
And I don’t have to worry I've been
Caught from the fall

I already know
That we all need correction
And I already know
That no one’s reached perfection
But most of all I know it’s already been laid out

All I've got to do
Is give it up now

Birds and the Bees

Written By: Craig Birchfield

The birds and the bees they’ve got it made,
And the trees there just the same
Without a care, without a fear, without a shame
And the grass is growing tall, without consciousness at all,
It makes me wonder
What’s making them so sure
That all they’ll ever need is coming with the breeze
The creatures and the beasts won’t want a thing

So I won’t worry, what tomorrow brings, or the troubles of today
After all, I’m the child of a king, who gives and takes away, who gives and takes away

The deserts depend upon a grace, in their desperate state
Still I’ve never seen a wasteland give complaint
And the seas toss violently, still I’ve never seen
An ocean fear the wind
All they’ll ever need is coming with the breeze
The creatures and the beasts won’t want a thing

So I won’t worry, what tomorrow brings, or the troubles of today
After all, I’m the child of a king, who gives and takes away, who gives and takes away

Who gives and takes away, gives and takes away, He gives and takes away, gives and takes away

Walls

Written By: Craig Birchfield

The need is far and wide
Overseas before your eyes
Still the cry of the broken
Is falling on deaf ears

If we’re who we say we are
Then why aren’t we moving past these walls
What’s the point of them at all
If there keeping us captive

If we’re not reaching out our words mean nothing
We can’t lose sight of the other side of these walls
Let’s not turn our ears, on the pain outside our doors
We can’t neglect the greatest command of them all
Let’s not forget to show love to each one

Some see the fields
Ripe in distant lands
Others to choose to serve you
Here they make their stand
Fear won’t hold us back, from the power of your call
My God with your strength we can tear down walls

If we’re not reaching out our words mean nothing
We can’t lose sight of the other side of these walls
Let’s not turn our ears, on the pain outside our doors
We can’t neglect the greatest command of them all
Let’s not forget to show love to each one
