Recorded with Benn Ross.
A song about questions, and honest answers


Whose rule book you gonna read, when you going to look?
And whose knowing looks did you believe, no matter what they took?

Whose trusted counsel do you use when it's all unraveled?
And whose handshake gentle do you fuse with your own soul's tendrils?
And whose holy book causes you to tremble, tremble, tremble?
And whose world have you shook, on the grasses by the temple you caused them to tremble

Whose words and phrases do you hear when chaos is reigning?
And whose thoughtful questions do you entertain and how do you answer them?
Is it with all of the honesty you have; is it with some of the honesty you have
Is it with some of the honest you have; is it with all of the honest you have

Who you want at your table, in your corner, to share the joy there?
And who listens to your stories, to your sorrows, to your heartbeats?
Answer this with all of the honest you have; it deserves all of the honesty you have.
