lyrics

Hail to Helpless Things
Hail to the King of Kings
God's a big surprise
He kissed me with your eyes

Hail to Falling Birds
Failing falling words
God is a big surprise
you see it in their eyes

I'm falling
down the same old thing again
And I'm sinking
even though I know how to swim
In the time it takes to find
the things you've left behind

Hail to broken jars
Ugly stupid scars
God is a big surprise
How'd you get so wise?

I'm falling
down the same old thing again
And I'm sinking
even though I know how to swim
In the time it takes to find
the things you've left behind

Hail to sinking ships
the wind is in her hips
God is a big surprise
He'll kiss you with my eyes

I'm falling
down the same old thing again
And I'm sinking
even though I know how to swim
In the time it takes to find
the things you've left behind
