It has been a while since we've spoken I have been tugging on a broken line May be too gone this time, Lord Been too low to be grounded My demons dancing in a conga line I am surrounded
You made me in your image But what if I don't like what I see? Is that insulting? Is that absurd? I made almost all my angels flee It keeps me knocking on heavens door So tell me, are you listening?? I'm not feeling assured
They say you turn water into wine, But none of that tonight I can settle for a bitter cup of coffee, For a bitter state of mind To keep me up so I won't dream of Grandparents who can't walk Or my lifelong companion In a wild dogs jaw Or an angry pair of sapphire eyes I know I've failed them all
Water into wine, maybe two or three Will make me numb enough to remind me Of what their love was like, Like the warm screams secreting From my windpipe, do you hear me now? Can you listen to me tonight???
I know I can be cowardly disciple, even a sheep In lions clothing- wasn't your book written for People like me No, I don't want to be Self loathing, another fallen angel You lose hope in, don't let me go Off the deep end, let the bitterness I've been sipping on be sweetened Please
