Previously unreleased track performed live with a band on Chris's episode of the Emmy award-winning music series "11th and Grant with Eric Funk", produced by MontanaPBS and originally aired in 2017.

lyrics

Pillar of smoke rising up
rising up to the sky
Oh fearsome flames, oh falling ash,
I feel the fire in your eyes

Pillar of smoke, cloud of dust
out along the mountain ridge
Afraid I’ll choke if look up
Just wanna run from what I did

I’ve been a fool
about our love, been dishonest honestly
What you don’t know can’t hurt,
or so a fool believes

It’s a lonely, it’s a shame
when there’s nothing left to say
Oh honey, please forgive me
I’ve seen the err of my ways

Pillar of smoke rising up, evil omen in the east
I told a joke, it fell flat and now last laughs’ on me

There’s no escape, from the blame, nothing to justify
My Sunday best, you know the rest
when I wore that suit of lies

It’s a lonely, it’s a shame
when there’s nothing left to say
Oh honey, please forgive me
I’ve seen the err of my ways
