"CRAVING TO SLAKE"

Verse 1
You waste your time trying to tear down my beliefs to get ahead.
Rather than get a life, you choose to pop me in the head.
Are you so deluded that you don't know your story is full of holes?
You've slipped backwards to the crowd and sinking mire of lost souls.

Verse 2
Don't you have something better to do? 'Cause right now this trend you can leave.
But if you keep on walking down this road, a tangled web you'll weave.
If what you wanna do is get hooked up with a comfortable life,
Get your mind out of the gutter and put down that blaming knife.

Chorus 1
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.

Verse 3
It takes a stronger man to see the truth these days,
To consider the fact that you're blind and in a defiant phase.
My friend, won't you open your eyes, ask God to help you see?
Take a stab at living your life, and stop stabbing me.

Chorus 2
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.

Bridge [spoken - bass notes noted here, not chords]
I don't expect you to choose the same life as I,
But it's dangerous when you poke your finger in God's eye.
Can't you choose to do what you've wanted all along?
Or must you first try to prove my choice is wrong?
Are we humans like God? Can we bring down His hand?
Can we righteously judge? Can we truly understand?
I think not, my friend, 'cause I've made the mistake
Of pointing the finger, my craving to slake.

Bass riff: -------- --------

Chorus 3
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.
Please stop complaining!
Stop draining the marrow out of my bones!
There's a life and you can get it;
The past you can forget it, rather than throwing your stones.
