Bad Books - Left Your Body Lyrics




We were sitting there nervous trying to keep our eyes from making contact
You were laying there looking worse than you had looked the previous Sunday
I was trying to imagine how it felt for you and you released it
Tried to put myself inside your shoes and felt like that was selfish
I don't know what it looks like where you are but I mean it must look better
Than just laying around and counting down until you meet your Maker

I imagine that He held your hand and showed you that you're far from perfect
That every single person he created has been a screw up you can't help it
Might as well just take that blame take off your shoes start getting comfy
There is nothing but forgiveness here the journey's over glad you met me
There is nothing but deliverance here pure and logic than you could be
And all the judgement that He yelled about is more about yourself than you'd think

I'm a 7 page laundry list of sinful deeds I swore were not me
And I felt you're the shadow of my death still scares the soul out me
I couldn't even wrap my head around how I could find a throne for judging
Still I sat there quietly, resenting you, resenting daddy
And all that I can do is hope and hope and hope that the Lord will treat me
The way that I believe he treated you when you left this earth and body

  1. Josiah Martin

    I like to think this song is about Scott from Frightened Rabbit. A very honest perspective of those who are left behind in a suicide and how it rocks them. "I couldn't even wrap my head around how I could find a throne for judging, Still I sat there quietly, resenting you, resenting daddy." the struggle of being angry at the person for taking their life, and god for not doing anything about it; but at the same time hoping that they found the peace they were looking for. The song is masterfully written, well done.

    We were sitting there nervous trying to keep our eyes from making contact
    You were laying there looking worse than you had looked the previous Sunday

    I was trying to imagine how it felt for you when you released it
    Tried to put myself inside your shoes and felt like that was selfish


    I don't know what it looks like where you are but I mean it must look better
    Than just laying around and counting down until you meet your Maker

    I imagine that He held your hand and showed you that you're far from perfect
    That every single person he created’s been a screw up you can't help it

    Might as well just take that blame take off your shoes start getting comfy
    There is nothing but forgiveness here the journey's over glad you met me

    There is nothing but deliverance here it’s pure and larger than you could be
    And all the judgement that He yelled about is more about yourself than you'd think

    I'm a seven page laundry list of sinful deeds I swore were not me
    And that valley of the shadow of my death still scares the soul out me

    I couldn't even wrap my head around how I could find a throne for judging

    Still I sat there quietly, resenting me, resenting daddy

    And all that I can do is hope and hope and hope that the Lord will treat me
    The way that I believe he treated you when you left this earth and body

    And when these flaming tongues landed on the torso it put a new tongue a new language in the body in the mouth in the brain


    Acts 2:3

    "There is nothing but forgiveness here, the journey's over, I'm glad you met me"

    Some of us know this desire intimately. ♥ = 💔
