Recorded at IHOP Joplin
Produced by Brennan Robinson


Lay here on the carpet, don't you waste away
My father picked his sermons over me
Picking off the lints and dirt, tiny piece of carpet
she'll stay warm for sons without their father
Little tune to go with the hours,
songs to wait on, our absent fathers

You waited for ages, your mother wept so loud
Your father held you so damn close, you could feel his heart break down
"the bastards gone now" they say
you cried the whole way out,
your mother wept to God
and boy did he answer

Little Tunes to go with the hours
songs to wait on, our absent

Oh Ishmael...

Oh how you have had to walk all alone
Waiting on a father, who never even showed
Oh, don’t you, look away
For above is a Father, who loves you

From Abraham to Ishmael, from my father to my son
There is Jehovah Rapha, my father who will heal
There is Jehovah Jireh, my father who sees me
The Broken fathers we have, the broken fathers we are
