Folded from one sheet of paper
Leaving no trace of your maker
And so without belief in Nothing
You test the limits of your suffering
to find again that there's no distance
the world outside's the one within you
Telling me to mind my place
Kiss the hem of your brocade.

this time

All the kings and queens
bow down before you
to venerate the Portion you control
it’s how we’ll keep yourself
from ever looking
down to the furthest recess
of your soul

go and break my heart
go and break my heart
go and break my heart

when the wheel turns around and brings me where you lay

this time

and it cursed the eyes that ever saw you
to frame your sacrifice in black and white
with your hands and knees clasped out before
you did they notice that you lay down like a child to die?

tell me can you finally hear the silence?
That’s the sound it makes when giants fall
To see your innocence undone in violence
when the sacred’s stolen from the world
And it’s only when it happens to you
you get to feel like everybody else
and though I’m trying so hard to accept it
all I want is to forget myself
