lyrics

The silver bolt
Torn
From the bleeding
Feet
The infant soothed
On a ewe’s teat
In the crook
Of the shepherd’s arm
And time races on
abandon
You never come home
All the world’s riches
Honours
Baubles
Mean nothing
Compared with
A night
On Citharon
The ache
So ancient
The wound
So perfect

This soul’s
Fissure
No thread
No raked
Coals
Can cauterize
Or stitch
The primal
Shattering
We are God’s
Abortions
He
Didn’t want
Us
Upped and gone
He wont
Return
Would you?
And yet
And yet
As the grave
Beckons
All destruction
Done
I’ve defiled
Everyone
I could defile
And then some
And yet
Another spin
Next time
Get it right
A proper wife
My daughter
Up the aisle
Wedding gown
Blossom
In her hair
The proud father
Hands her over
Soul as clean
And white
As Easter
On Christmas night
And yet
Sometimes I think
Is it not
Rather
The taint
We’re after.
