about

(Selfish Surrender)

lyrics

the wind was howling when I opened my eyes
swinging my fists I was looking for a fight
I was afraid of a dark and heavy voice
telling me to get off of my face and rejoice
but I've been out in the wilderness again
I heard that a man must die if he wants to live

oh holy Father
I come to you a weary sinner
won't you relieve me
of all these wonderful things

I know something that the devil can't do
he cannot stop a man who's got nothing to lose
I will run until my lungs collapse
until my heart gives or I break my back
and in the valley of the shadow of death
I'll thirst for no water that the earth can give

oh holy Father
I come to you a weary sinner
won't you relieve me
of all these wonderful things

it's over and I'm so tired
it kills me to lose
it's over and I'm so damn tired
it kills me to lose

free your mind from the affairs of heaven they say
put the shovel in the dirt and make your own way
but nothing is for certain in the cold cold west
but a thirst for the riches and the swiftest death
and I'm no Solomon but I can see
where all of this vanity is taking me

oh holy Father
I come to you a weary sinner
won't you relieve me
of everything I love

I will praise you til the end and I will brace myself for famine

about

Daniel Pimentel Salt Lake City, Utah

Born and raised in the shadow of Salty Town's powdered blue mountains, Daniel Pimentel combines the classic storytelling of American folk with the sonic bite of modern rock. His strength lies in instinctively honest poeticism, delivered in trademarked fashion with hauntingly desperate vocals, seasoned with a tinge of dark humor and self-critique. ... more
