The Peace of Wild Things
by Paper Route



 

Cut like diamonds
Set aside like an oceanís island
Or a child in a field
With nowhere to go
Oh

Memories
As heavy as a stone

Cain was angry
And he moved in a blood red fury
So now one brotherís dead
And one brotherís born
Oh

Thereís a ghost in the mirror
Iím afraid more than ever
My feet have led me straight into my grave
Oh Lord have you walked away?
Oh Lord have you walked away from me?
From me

Hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah
Let it rain, let it pour down on ya

I am empty
In my end you are my beginning

Thereís a ghost in the mirror
Iím afraid more than ever
My feet have led me straight into my grave
Oh Lord have you walked away?
Oh Lord have you walked away from me?
From me

Hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah
Let it rain, let it pour down on ya



Behind the Song:
(JT) Chad and I like to give each other challenges. This song was born from a challenge. I loved his track so much I was legitimately afraid to sing on it. I felt like I was going to ruin it. So I tiptoed around it for a month or so. Always put it aside, telling the guys ďyah iím working on it, it sounds amazing!Ē .. But I knew I couldnít sing on it, write to it, change anything, touch it, unless i was flooded with at least the same amount of inspiration that Chad had. We were wrapping up the recordings and I knew it was time. I had sort of hit a stride of writing and felt like i could stare this song in the eyes. I poured some bourbon and went on a long walk. (first verse done). Poured some more bourbon and went on another walk. (second verse done). It came to me like a dark hymn. I sat down at the out of tune piano at Grantland and worked on a choir part. Chad called from Joy Mansion (he and Gavin were doing drums) and I read him the lines and gave him my pitch for the song. We got together the next day and combined ideas. Then in one day texted all of our friends and tracked them as our choir. Our hymn was complete.
