nation of heat

they say I come with less
than I should rightfully posses
i say, 'the more i buy the more i'm bought'

i've come from down the road
and my footsteps never slowed
before we met, i knew we'd meet

you’ve come to know me stubborn as a butcher
and you’ve come to know me thankless as a guest
but will you recognize my face when God's awful grace
strips me of my jacket and my vest
and reveals all the
treasure
in
my
chest?
