Put it Together

Put it Together

Shine that light on me
I didn’t know much
In a life that’s just like
Breaking right over me

Watch me run
You’ll be sorry, father
Born but it’s not enough
Maroon from
A cracked champagne glass
Laughing as I put it together

Just watch me, break me
Suck me out of venom’s cries
But there’s just sound and steam
With no exit

Heaven is on earth, father
The reasons for creation
Too gone for me to know
Shine that searchlight on me
And put it all back together
