Track Name: Wreck of the Fallible (Single)
The broken the lowly and the poor
were gathered and boarded at the shore
to cast off beggar, thief and whore
to a lonely road

This mother her situation grim,
held her child close and leaning in,
was praying dear father I have sinned
so this boy, he must go


They say, "O…"
Why have we been selected now to go
out to the ones you neglected in their darkest hours?
Were you ever really there at all?
But when the bell tolls
on that grey morn,
would you cut your ties and run?
Here's to the wreck of the fallible...

Oh the rudderless travel where they will
for seven generations in the swill,
to eat but never to be filled,
just remain afloat

And battered, arriving at the spot.
Awakened after years of being lost.
These men they're not worried what it cost,
they just dive down below

They say "O…"
why have we been rejected by our own?
was it wrong to expect that in their darkest hours
you were ever really there at all?
But when the bell tolls
on that grey morn,
Would you cut your ties and run?
Here's to the wreck of the fallible...

Just stay another couple days,
floating all alone among the waves
and stowing what others throw away
for the few you could save
