"The Saint" written & performed by Cody Ross


We will get lonely and shed our skin
corruption is pleasure it's the pleasure of sin
the sad solemn eyes of the bonified saint
he weeps with the rapture but can't stay awake

I know his wife is angry and his kids are asleep
he won't protect them but he'll keep the peace
as if it were enough to keep them at bay
The Saint won't ever get to see sunlight again

He got frightened and he started at the sky
cursing his fortune and his beautiful life
his sorrow returned he fell to the earth
he crippled his horses and was last seen giving birth

Judas said to Brutus go in for the kill
Joshua's off at Jericho Hill
he fit the battle but he lost the war
he dropped his harpoon
said what are we fighting for
