Barrel House

Band of Horses10 Jun 2016

Shifting the chair on the porch

For a better position to enjoy the warmth

Of the sun

To keep warm


And working the needle and twine

Lost in the furthest recess of the mind

It is calm

There is peace

A cat on his lap and a dog at her feet


But oh

The heart of a man

The secrets they bury within

And oh

The causes that force his poor hand

Lead to be misled

At those deceiving hand


And it's a night among easily described

Misunderstanding our thoughts by and by

I'm barely here

If even at all


A fear of the misunderstood

Invites the violence right in chasing off all the good

We have brought

All on ourselves

Let it straight by the words of somebody else


And oh

The life of a man

His head above the water and pushed under again

And oh

I've seen it one too many times

It's a test of the spirit versus

The health of the mind



Bring relief to him now

And the people he loves


I know the feeling's the feeling but

Not what it's called




The will of a man

And all his well meaning intent

And oh

The thought of it all

As far as we've come we're still further to go



All the years we lost

They don't mean nothing at all


Lifting the spirit impression of a son


Bring some peace to his heart and a wondering thought

Bring some peace to this world and keep passin' it on
