I tried telling them

but they wouldn't listen and they wouldn't take it

Despite your wings faltering before their eyes, every single feather shining

and as they were singing oh glory, oh glory

to all their false idols

 

I tried telling them

but they wouldn't listen and they wouldn't take it

Despite the light coming off your hands, every single touch warming

feasting on the blood of their lord

and eating their whispers

 

I tried telling them

I tried turning their eyes inward

to where the rot flows and the wounds burn

but they wouldn't take it

and they were never any good at listening

 

I tried telling them

I was carving my words with bricks

I tried telling them

As you came crashing down

I tried telling them

I was watching with my heart open and my mouth shut

From all the rot and the wounds

stitched onto my heart
