I am the sum of a terrible nothing,
Lurching & slouching onwards to Bethlehem.
Heaven has only room for so many,
Clearly there won’t be a spot for me at all.
I am the sum of a terrible something,
Watch how the light shine through my see-through skin.
Send me an angel who flies from Montgomery,
Blind him & drown him & clip off his molten wings.
Wait in silence,
Life in vein.
Blind in judgement,
Let the wandering feel me now!
Burn the oceans, burn their homes,
In these times before I go.
Wasted lives of sleep & stone,
Watch the centre can not hold.
Swimming through the Gyre I am born!
Swimming through the Gyre I am…
Hear me coming,
Howl in pain.
Seek the martyr,
Skin & soul is what I crave.
