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

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
