lyrics

this song
is for the pentagram i carved
when i was drunk
into the top
of my left thigh.
this song
is for a secret that nobody
seems to know,
a secret
that'll make you
come alive.

you dressed in robes,
up against the backlit altar;
a silhouette against
the storm.
the will that's on your face
electrifies the hall,
from the rafters
down to the concrete floors.

so now you claim the
skies above you,
and the earth
you rest your feet upon.

i saw you raise your fist,
defiant, against the heavens.
called him "father"
tall and proud,
for all of us
who were made
to feel unwanted,
writhing out there in the crowd.

now it's dark,
and they're cleaning up the ballroom;
the beast is growling in its sleep.
we stumble dazed
out of the wild abyss,
futures burning
on our cheeks.

so now you claim the
air you take in,
and the breath
reverberating
out of you.
