What's missing is
some kind of pillow
some loving willow
some care once denied
now dissolved inside

what's plenty is
one god
six tongues
five breathes
four lungs

what's rhythm is
plenty of things missing
steps taken, lips kissing
new harmony on an awesome scale
meat against meat
under sail

    General CommentI think it might say "under silk" instead of "under sail." I think it's describing the longing/remembrance of intimacy, and the "meat against meat" could be the two people "under silk" sheets.

    General Commentcould be, but im pretty sure its "under sail". as the expressions to 'pull the anchor' or to 'set sail' mean to start something (not necessarily a journey on a boat), 'under sail' means to be in motion.

    General CommentHe's talking about what's missing in life. Everyone's searching for "the answer," ya know. True joy. We're all looking for that true-pure love. There's an empty vacuum in every man's heart. And it can only be filled with the love that Christ Jesus alone can give.

    General Comment"one god
    six tongues
    five breathes
    four lungs"

    One god implies whichever monotheistic god you choose. Six tongues is from a bible verse. Four lungs seems to imply a couple. Five breaths I'm not sure?
