Music & Lyrics by Mark Croft

I got some color back
After six months underwater
And the bluest face I’ve ever seen
And I blew my stash
Courting the preacher’s youngest daughter
And she finally made a man out of me

That quarter slice of moon has been hanging there for days
And I know you're waiting patiently to strip me of my faith
I traded in my high hopes to kiss the enemy
And now I'm standing here and waiting but you ain't gonna cripple me

So throw another back
and drink that dirty water
because I know you love that bitter taste
it’s a simple f act
that that drink will make you smaller
so you can wipe that smug look off your face

Well one drink is too many and a hundred ain’t enough
To take these stones and break these bones because I’ve made them out of love
Traded in my high hopes to kiss the enemy
No w I’m standing here and waiting but you ain't gonna cripple me

There's a pounding in my chest and I know you can hear it drumming
And I can lie, lie, lie to myself and say that you ain’t coming
take my arms and take my legs and take my final breath
You can have anything you want
But you'll never get…
that quarter slice of moon has been hanging there for days
And I know you're waiting patiently to strip me of my faith
I'm trading all my failures for one small victory
Now I’m standing here tall and you ain't gonna cripple me
