Riff + Fill: “Tell me what it is then”

Tell me what it is then .. wouldn’t you like to know sure sure but Sturgill says mercy’s overrated did you name your daughter that as a prayer because it’s all prayers I promise that’s what I said one time and I meant it and I believe it .. wouldn’t you like to know / I would / tell me what it is then .. I almost ran away but now I’m inside these headphones and the new messiah of country music keeps calling out God and his (his?) pretty and chaotic skies .. crooked grin and the end of time .. tell me what it is then .. tell me tell me .. cool jet of water and a bass grumble 

What it is is a music and the baby’s bath time

What it is is new wave crooners:

I’m sorry but I’m just thinking of the right words to say .. I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be .. I promise you I promise you

I called my poem a prayer and it wasn’t a prayer or any promise it was my one true name .. Or life
