Lyrics

(Source: Broken China)

I can take it or leave it, won't be the woebegone,
Don't need a model universe to hang your pictures on.
You hide somewhere, you die somewhere,
And then this senseless thought,
By hating more you're feeling more,
And that's how you get caught.
They're never going to make it easy,
Of this you can be sure.
I greet you from your wilderness,
I'll stay inside your door.
There is no cage or prison, they have no fence to tall
You die more times than anyone; there's still no place to fall.
They're never going to keep it simple;
This comes down from above.
I have no helm, no secret realm.
I dream to be at the heart of love, a part of love.
I bet you can conceal it, but that's just a dead-end track.
I'll cover you like the driven snow and then I'll bring you back.
You'll see! You feel like, you feel like a banner,
Unfurled and gently blown.
And there before your opening eyes,
The self you've never known
They're never going to make it easy;
Of this you can be sure.
You feel untied, beatified,
And loved for evermore.
