the damned ones
raise good sons
and daughters
follow their fathers

here you are
burning stars
hoping for
anything at all

there they go
throwing stones
into a
bucket of sorrows

only time
passes by
with you here
i can see clearer now

all that i’d ever want
and all that i’d ever need
is taken from her hands
and laid down in a scene
and all that we ever are

in this space
shadows trace
a feeling
without any meaning

surely now
you have found
the colors
to show to your mother

even still
darkness spills
but you hold it
into your stomach

they burned you
they spurned you
they killed you
and nothing is clearer now

all that we’d ever want
and all that we’d ever need
is lost inside the grave
is rolled up in your sleeve
and all that we cry out for
is beaten and it’s taken away
it’s lost inside a thought
before the dawning day
and all that they took from you
your goodness and your innocent grace
they pushed you on the floor
they spat upon your face
and all that you ever saw
was a god that only knows how to break
they put away your soul
i want to sing your name
