    "A Car, A Torch, A Death"

    The air begins to feel a little thin
    As I start the car and then I begin
    To add the miles piled up behind me
    I barely feel a smile deep inside me

    And I begin to envy the headlights driving south
    I want to crack the door so I can just fall out
    But then I remember when you packed my car
    You reached in the back and buckled up your heart

    For me to drive away with
    I began to understand
    Why God died

    The demon sat there waiting on her porch
    It was a little dark so he held a makeshift torch
    And when my car was far out of sight
    He crept in her room and stayed there for the night

    And then I felt chills in my bones
    The breath I saw was not my own
    I knew my skin that wrapped my frame
    Wasn't made to play this game
    And then I saw Him, torch in hand
    He laid it out, what he had planned
    And then I said, I'll take the grave
    Please, just send them all my way

    I began to understand
    Why God died

    The air begins to feel a little thin
    As we're waiting for the morning to begin
    But for now you told me to hold this jar
    And when I looked inside, I saw
    It held your heart

    For me to walk away with
    I began to understand
    Why God died

    "I begin to understand why God died" is arguably one of the rawest lines I've ever heard in a song

    I'm listening to this while writing my books. At one point I just stopped and laid back in my chair. The song was so beautiful, I just closed my eyes and tuned out the world.
