Track Name: Oft Forgotten / Only Begotten
Space and time's poet laureate
Just another thing to forget

You leaned in for a heavenly kiss
The story that we told our friends is
You was just another lover to forget

Worlds of wonders and words of wisdom, formed on infant lips
But we're worried and bothered and bored of listening
To just another thing to forget

[Chorus]
But knowing this, let's blow a kiss to all our wasted time
Let's get snowed in, focus in, til we recognize
The oft forgotten only begotten God of God and light of light
The oft forgotten only begotten burning on under the cover of night

We thought you'd arrive in splendid dress,
Your "more with less" sure didn't impress
You were just another thing to forget

Your big debut in peasant milieu was a promise and a pledge
That you will clothe in dignity all the lowly things we forget

The eyes that we have for you now, I wish we had em from the onset
How much beauty did we disavow
When you were just another thing to forget

[Chorus]

That God would deign to become less, to fragile folk so condescend
How patient He remains, when He's just another thing to forget

Though I know you anticipated it, I'm sad to admit
You've so often been just another thing to forget
