A myriad of sights and sounds bursting forth from the core of my existence
As the neverending disembodied hunger keeps begging me to bridge the distance
Between the man that I was and he who I need to be
No matter how hard I try to unbind myself I still can’t see.
God knows what the fuck I’m doing
Feels like I’ve been holding my breath for days
Standing blindfolded with broken legs
Expecting to find my way out of this maze.
Resting my head for comfort, drunk with the wine I suckle from her breasts
Collecting odds and ends to wall myself in, here in our comfortable nest.
I can find neither shoulder nor solace
For nobody likes the sound of my voice
What have I gotten myself into?
Drifting with no air in space’s black void.
I love you
I keep whispering it to myself.
Forcing a big stupid grin onto my face
I’m feeling swell.
Dearly departed, we are gathered here today
To lay to rest this broken man we found drifting in outer space.
Frightened but hopeful I brace my weight against these falling walls.
Hoping to high heaven that jesus will hear my desperate call.
I beg of you, being of light.
Guide me through this endless dark.
Know that I yearn to know your salvation
From the top to the bottom of my huge heart.
