Albums: Peace Between Nations EP (2005)

One gonna heal my body
Another gonna heal my pain
One gonna settle me down
And bring me back up again
One gonna put my family
Back together again

One gonna hold my woman
Another gonna hold my job
One gonna help me get up
Another gonna help me stop
One gonna help me talk right
One gonna lay me down to sleep

(Humming)

One gonna hold my godsend
Another gonna hold my bones
One gonna keep me warm and
Another gonna keep me cold
One gonna bring religion
Right from a Coleman stove

One gonna help me keep up
Another gonna help me take
One gonna run me down
Hail of bullets in my way
You're gonna keep my soul, it was
Yours to have long ago

(Humming)

One gonna buckle my belt
Around the ceiling pipe
One gonna buckle my knees, and
Another gonna lock them up tight
One gonna hold the pen while you
Drag my arm across the page

One gonna hold my memories
Another gonna close the door
One gonna leave me restless
Another wanting more
You're gonna keep my soul, it was
Yours to have long ago

(Humming)
