Performances (52)

You're mothers' child 
But night lays you down 
Hair aflame, wild look in your eye 
Naked belly to the ground 
A forest fire 
Nibbles at your veins 
Crawls up your arm 
runs away with your mind 
And burns dry thoughts like leaves 

Eyes stare up 
But something's in the way 
In the Bible only angels have wings 
And the rest must wait to be saved 
A dry tongue 
Scrams at the sky 
But the wind just breathes words in 
As a strange bird tries to fly 

Pieces of us die everyday 
As though our flesh were hell 
Such injustice, as children we are told 
That from God we fell, 
Where are my angels? 
Where's my golden one? 
Where's my hope 
now that my heroes have gone? 
Some are being beaten 
Some are being born 
And some can't tell 
the difference anymore
