the lion and the lamb

I've had this song kicking around for a while. I recorded it a few different ways, it just sort of wouldn't let me be. It means a lot to me in a way I don't quite know how to explain, or even understand

Beat Radio - The Lion and the Lamb (Mp3)

Oh, also, that first guitar solo thing sounds like the guitar solo from "So Bored" by Wavves. I swear I recorded it before I heard Wavves. Its funny, I thought maybe the song was different enough and I'd get a way with it, but I was rocking Wavves with my 6 year old son Jackson and he called me out on it the moment he heard it. So, whatever, I guess I'm like Coldplay to Wavves' Joe Satriani or something. Or maybe I'm more like Cat Stevens?

here are the lyrics:

in the morning i was walking where the ocean meets the land
i was thinking about the lion
i was thinking about the lamb
i guess i hoped you'd see the truth that i disguised inside these lines
i hoped that i could take your blues and make them mine

i'm feeling listless
i'm shiftless i don't know what to do
i've got no religion
but you
but times gonna change us
we're never gonna feel this way again
so lets let the candle
burn at both ends

i was caught up in the moment
i was safe inside the sound
i could see the castles burning
i didn't let it bring me down
but now my record players broken
and my blankets on the floor
and i can't tell which way i'm turning anymore

there was a moment
i wasn't feeling anything at all
i was the sound between heartbeats
i was the ghost in the hall
everything changes
when i was in the basement making noise
and my fears unraveled into joy

i used to think
i could go on this way forever now i know
it's now or never

i'm feeling listless
i'm shiftless i don't know what to do
i've got no religion
but you
but times gonna change us
we're never gonna feel this way again
c'mon let the candle
burn at both ends
there was a moment
i wasn't feeling anything at all
i was the sound between heartbeats
i was the ghost in the hall
everything changes
when i was in the basement making noise
and my fears unraveled into joy

i used to think
we could go on....

Love the tone who get in your guitars. They are like the sound of electricity moving through a cement tunnel, at dusk.
