Devil’s lap

 

Hey, I think my heartwall

Is growing too thin

I get to meet our merciful Father

And shoot before I kneel

Hey, all is forgiven

Where we are from

Maybe while the angels are grieving

I’ll let the devil come

 

Others’ eyes are what I fear most

I can’t bear to be seen

Everyone can hear what I’m saying when I’m saying it

But none of them what I mean

I guess the only thing we share is,

When covered with a white cloth,

The stillness of a frozen existence

Uncertain if we’ll ever make it across

 

Go away, go away

The buildings are falling fast

I am trapped inside their big shadows cast

At the surface of our mad world

Go away, go away

Your hand is too frail to grab

I am counting seconds in devil’s lap

Watching angels give up and fall

           

I guess I’m going down

To where bastards wear a crown

Where gardens favor dark

And garden flowers bark

 

Hey, if angels come alive

To kiss where I bleed

I will scorch their lips with a hot knife

Lay their bodies at your feet

Hey, you brought me orchids

The day I confessed

It felt like a hundred wild horses

Have galloped through my chest

 

I remember how it happened

Your kiss burning through my glove

How all the little secrets I kept just unraveled

And ceased before your big love

‚Äč

I remember how you listened

In awe to my each word

Then how a growing pool of confusion has glistened

In your eyes and how it hurt

 

Go away, go away

The buildings are falling fast

I am trapped inside their big shadows cast

At the surface of our mad world

Go away, go away

Your hand is too frail to grab

I am counting seconds in devil’s lap

Watching angels give up and fall

          

I guess I’m going down

To where bastards wear a crown

Where gardens favor dark

And garden flowers bark

 

Oh how I feel

Inside

I can’t reveal

Or hide
