Lyrics

Whatever’s In This Man’s Soul

Written By: by CJ Merrell

I saw a picture of a man tied to a tree.
Said he was crazy, but what does that mean?

Been a while since he was free.
There was dirt on his hands,
His face, and his knees.

He was tired & confused.
His demon wanted him to lose.

There was fear and sadness in his eyes.
I just stood there and wondered why.

CHORUS
If I could find the courage to face my fears.
I could see my pain,
And it would draw me near
To what I don’t understand,
And what I can’t control
Whatever’s in this man’s soul.

Had a red headed friend who walked through my door.
Bailed her boyfriend out of the 3rd cell floor.

She cut on herself to free the pain.
Her daddy lived with her snortin’ cocaine.

Left her razors laying around
Hopin’ she had found someone
Who wouldn’t look down

Thought she had a friend
And wouldn’t have to hide
But I got scared and had to say goodbye.

CHORUS
If I could find the courage to face my fears,
I could see my pain,
And it would draw me near
To what I don’t understand,
And what I can’t control
Whatever’s in this girl’s soul.

My boy saw a strange man die.
Report said he was stabbed 70 times.

September came, back to school
He couldn’t do the work
And he broke all their rules.

They sent him to the office at last count 10.
Everyday he came home with a report of N.

Said they were gonna do what they’ve always done
If he doesn’t conform, that’s tuff son

CHORUS
I said..
Find the courage to face your fears.
See your pain will draw you near
To what you don’t understand,
And what you can’t control
Whatever’s in my boy’s soul.

Some people build stonewalls around a man.
Others just medicate cause the doctor says they can.

Next time you’re afraid, and you want to run.
Or maybe you have the power to put down your thumb.

CHORUS
Find the courage to face your fears.
See your pain
It will draw you near.
To what you don’t understand,
And what you can’t control
Whatever’s in this man’s soul.
