Aha
Uhm
1-2

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
Round here they sing broken hymns
They prayers flow better when they're soaked in gin
The amp's dusty and sits in the corner
By bartender thatíll pickpocket your heart
And a jukebox thatíll steal your quarter
Bartender, please give me a confession
Exchange fear for courage in the form of a well drink
Thereís a heavy current, got a long way to swim
Closed the Bible a while ago, I need some shots for this sin
Hail Mary, come with me, feel like Pac when it hits
Got some fire in my belly and a riot in the gut
Bushmills for a band-aid, the sweet taste of blood
Then I might actually feel something if I donít cover it up
Watch their faces, familiar places
Even if they havenít left the vinyl booth that they stayed in
The motel next door, a sign that reads vacant
And a truth thatís so strong Iíd be a fool not to chase it
But yea, Iím a fool and I stay here
Hope these problems bail themselves, I die in wait here
One more, four more, fuck it a night cap
Service starts at 5 tomorrow and Iíll be right back

[Hook: Allen Stone]
Underneath this fragile frame
Lives a battle between pride and shame
But Iíve misplaced that sense of fright
This crown of thorns is perched atop my spine
But listen closely as I testify
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
I read the Bible but I forgot the verses
The liquor store is open later than the churches
Pure by their imperfections, everything is burning
To hell with the confessions, oh the Lord immerses
Blessed in holy water, the sin of Holy Father
Have you ever smelled bless that smells atmonic vodka
11 AM in the morning and you canít get it off yet
Comment to the preacher but itís like the pastor isnít talking
Until the store opens I can read up on that doctrine
The people close to me say Iím in need of a doctor
Think that I got a problem but these are not apostles
This the drink of the Lord, thatís according to my gospel
Open to interpretation, if youíre judging it I donít want it
I got tins that scole like my throat when I hit the bottle
And Iím sinking and thatís why I keep on drinking
I need a refill, bar more than once every weekend
Sweet Jesus, Iím getting amnesia
Shaking til Iíd get a taste, my faith is having seizures
Every time I walk away and try to leave it
Every time I walk away and try to leave it

[Bridge: Macklemore]
Wouldnít miss it for the world
Baptized in my vices and the bar is my church
Traded my artist and I pawned off the easel
Spend it all searching for God at the Neon Cathedral

[Bridge: Macklemore]
Wouldnít miss it for the world
Baptized my vices and the bar is my church
Traded my artist and I pawned off the easel
Spend it all searching for God, Neon Cathedral
Neon Cathedral

[Hook: Allen Stone]
Underneath this fragile frame
Lives a battle between pride and shame
But Iíve misplaced that sense of fight
This crown of thorns is perched atop my spine
But listen closely as I testify
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night

Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night
Dependency has been a thief at night
Thief at night, thief at night
