lyrics

I am not the Atticus that I had hoped to be
I am inconsistent in loving people not like me
It’s hard to cross a culture every time I cross the street
I feel about as stable as that house of leaves

It’s more than an only child can take

Sometimes I look around and just lose my grasp on hope
My only consolation, Jesus, is that you don’t
Sometimes I look around and just lose my grasp on hope
Oh oh oh oh

That’s a lot of starfish by an unrelenting sea
That’s a lot of folks who are dying slowly
Many days I do not look the well-watered tree
Feel about as stable as that house of leaves

It’s more than an only child can take

(Chorus)

The Lord is concerned for the poor;
Ostensibly so am I

There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
But gosh! It keeps me in a near-constant state of dependency!
