I once spoke a heavenly language
I once held the flame on my tongue
But I drank from the wine of such lofty design
And that quickly the language was gone

I once played along with the angels
I played in the band of the Lord
But I guess that I fell when I sang for myself
Because suddenly I was alone

To the hills, to the hills I am going
Nothing to do but wander away
Because nothing at all can compare to the call
That I lost when I gave it away

Jesus Christ, have mercy
For I am not living my calling
Mother Mary, pray for me
For I am not living my calling

I am not living my calling, I am not living


from WITNESS, released October 20, 2016
