"The Wrote And The Writ"
set tempo
  C#m            G#            A
They're taking pictures of the man from God
  E                  B
I hope his cassock's clean
  C#m            G#           A
The burden of being our holy fellas
  E                    B  
Your halo'd better gleam, better gleam

 E?        B?          A?
What of all those wayward priests?
 C#m            B
The ones who like to drink
 E?       B?                A?
Do you suppose they'd swap their blood for wine
  C#m                B
Like you swapped yours for ink, for ink

You wrote me oh so many letters
And all of them seemed true
Promises look good on paper
Especially from you, from you

The weight of all those willing words
I carried all alone
You wouldn't put your pen to bed
When we hadn't found our own, our own 

Your sentences rose high at night
And circled round my head
The circle's since been broken
Like the priest before me is breaking bread

I'm being asked to drink the blood of Christ
And soon I'll eat his flesh
I'm alone again before the altar
Shedding all my old regrets

The last of which I'll tell you now
As it flies down the sink
I never knew a part of you
You didn't set in ink, in ink

The letters that you left behind
No longer shall I read
Your blood's between the pages
And I can't stand to see you bleed

And I'll soon forget what was never there
Your words are ash and dust
All that's left is the song I've sung
The breath I've taken and the one I must

If you're born with a love for the wrote and the writ
People of letters your warning stands clear
Pay heed to your heart and not to your wit
Don't say in a letter what you can't in my ear

It's the same thing for the whole song.
