  1. Sober at the Wake

From the recording Sober at the Wake

Lyrics

The mission of the day
stay sober at the wake
allergic to foul play
looking for closure
 
far too young a man to die
hard to understand and the Angels sigh
 
how common is a gun
how common is a fair fight
stay calm and not get drunk
or are you gonna get tight,
stay sober at the wake
 
A complicated fate
a life can be erased
less dignity then grace
and left unsatisfied
 
everybody has to die
not everybody catches a bullet that ends their life
 
how common is a gun
how common is a fair fight
stay calm and not get drunk
or are you gonna get tight,
stay sober at the wake
