After the Stone  

I broke down in the city of angels 

A place where you'd think you'd find God. 

But all I found was a junkie named Jesus 

Who had a joint for his staff and his rod 

 

He said fire it up and help me burn 

This pain that haunts me each day 

So I struck a match we watched the smoke 

Carry his memories away. 

 

But it all came back after the stone

when the smoke finally cleared he’s back alone 

The hurt fell like rain 

left him drenched to the bone 

it all came back after the stone. 

 

He said I run and hide to a poisonous realm

from something that I just can't face

I won't waste your time 

cause it ain't worth a dime 

It's best you get out of this place

 

I said what can I do he said I am past the point

but I thank you for your concern 

then he drew a glass gun, shot it deep in his arm 

again I watched his memories burn

 

Chorus

 

He said God won’t you please take me

this fight I just can't win

His prayer was answered in silence

as an overdose slowly crept in

 

In His right hand he held a locket

inside a photo of his family 

on the back was engraved only three words

in loving memory

 

He didn't come back after the stone

when the smoke cleared he was no longer alone

The hurt  didn't fall

And Leave him drenched to the bone 

He didn’t come back after the stone. 

 

I woke up in the city of angels 

A place where I found God
