New Jon Foreman song titled "Vice Verses"

UPDATE:

Full version:


----------------------------




Thanks to Olivia and LOBH for this partial recording that happened during the acoustic benefit show Jon Foreman played last Friday. They also report that the song will NOT be on the new, upcoming Switchfoot record, but it WILL be on the next release they do.

It is unclear whether this will be next Switchfoot release, or a Jon Foreman side project. Regardless, enjoy this beautiful new song, called "Vice Versus."

Olivia also posted the lyrics on the video description. Here they are (now complete, thanks to the full version of the video):


Walking along the high tide line
Watching the pacific from the side lines
Wonder what it means to live together?
Wanting more than just guidelines

Looking for signs in the night sky,
Wishing that I wasn’t such a nice guy
Wonder what it means to live together?
Wonder what it means to die?

- Chorus -
I know that there's a meaning to it all
A little resurrection every time I fall
You got your babies, I got my hearses
Every blessing comes with a set of curses
I got my vices, I got my vice verses
I got my vice verses

The wind could be my new obsession
The wind can be my next depression
The wind goes anywhere it wants to
Wishing that I learned my lesson

The ocean sounds like a garage band
Coming at me like a drunk man
The ocean tells me a thousand stories
None of them are lies

- Chorus -
I know that there's a meaning to it all
A little resurrection every time I fall
You got your babies, I got my hearses
Every blessing comes with a set of curses
I got my vices, I got my vice verses
I got my vice verses

Let the blessed be glad
Be all my epitaph
With these rising and falling
And after all, we're just water
And I am just soul
With a body of water and bones
Water and bones

Where is God in the night sky?
Where is God in the city light?
Where is God in the earthquake?
Where is God in the genocide?

Where are you in my broken heart?
Everything seems to fall apart
Everything feels rusted over
Tell me that you're there

- Chorus -
I know that there's a meaning to it all
A little resurrection every time I fall
You got your babies, I got my hearses
Every blessing comes with a set of curses
I got my vices, I got my vice verses
These are my vice verses
These are my vice verses

Yeah
These are my vice verses
