lyrics

It started on the day that you ate from the tree.
Your head started to repeat "It's everybody else but me".
Your heart let you believe.
The angel shut off all of the lights and yelled fire.
You ran out with your shoes untied,
Changing voices 'til your mother cried.
You held her hand while she closed her eyes.

The years were less than kind and you aged like the night,
Growing darkest just before sunrise,
Coming on and off as days go by.
Broken windows let you see inside.
The door broke off the frame and I watched him come inside.
I could see him in your eyes.
It was a struggle, but not a fight.
You were the one who had the knife.

It's deeper than your bones.
You never could have known
That your flesh was not a home,
Just a place to overthrow.
What's the point of sleep?
When you're awake it's still a dream,
Just a medicated scene.
Nothing's what it seems.

You swore you saw the light.
Even in a perfect dark, visions burst like holy sparks.
Words and moments just fall apart
While your sons are crying out.

It's deeper than your bones.
You never could have known
That your flesh was not a home,
Just a place to overthrow.
What's the point of sleep?
When you're awake it's still a dream,
Just a medicated scene.
Nothing's what it seems.

Nothing's what it seems. Nothing's what it seems to be.

Are you angry? Are you lost?
Are you searching after God?
Cut up and alone...
Surrounded and exposed...
