lyrics

The Lord was getting restless up there on the mercy seat
He said, "I've killed a million Canaanites, I still feel incomplete
Did you ever get that empty feeling way down in your feet?
Damn, but it's a bastard to be lonely"

Kind David made his million selling cell phones at the mall
A boat, a house, a wife or two, King David had it all
He hung a picture of Goliath in his office on the wall
He said, "Damn, but it's a bastard to be lonely"

I memorized each letter of your codes and your commands
I petitioned you to let me come into your promised land
O, I languished in that desert with my staff in my hand
I said, "Damn, but it's a bastard to be lonely"

I came to you with theory, I came to you with thirst
I came to put in practice everything that I'd rehearsed
You said my offering was perfect, but my faith somehow perverse
I said, "Master, it's a bastard to be lonely"

You led me up that mountain once to call the holy bluff
I saw the wood, I saw the fire, you told me these would be enough
How resolute your blade that day, how absolute your love
When you said, "Damn, but it's a bastard to be lonely"
