Have you ever walked through hell
And there was no one you could tell
To help you through it all
When all else seemed to fail?
Why can’t we be honest
About our struggles and our pains
The skeletons we dance with
our secrets buried in their graves?
We all fight against the grain,
all of us circling the drain,
villainous, voodooed, star-crossed fools,
all of us equal in our pain.
We count our scars,
in any weather,
we are brothers, we are sisters,
now let’s sing together.
Sinner’s are the new holy
Before the throne I stand
Righteous by the Blood only
And that means that you don’t
got to live phony
Pretending that your fine smelling
while you die slowly
At the same time a righteous and a sinful man
that’s what I am
while I’m living this life span
i’m defeated and that was my last stand
no matter, man, i’ll grab my songbook
and I’ll sing it with the whole fam
And we stand side by side
Smiles on our faces with our broken lives
How would that look?
Everyone singing from the same Sinner’s Songbook?
And we’ll stand hand in hand
Grateful for the mercy that we can’t understand
But loving the freedom
That we get from the same Sinner’s Songbook!

A long-time fan of Dogwood. They got me through some tough times as a teenager. Whether it was dealing with my dad who bailed or struggling through the faith, their songs always made me feel like someone else understood. aahurt
