This head holds fragments of some shattered glass
They act as puzzle pieces with a sharp contrast in part
To what once hung here before the violent collapse of the whole damn thing
I've dug through pieces and ripped out my hair
No way to tell if they are all still there
No way to tell if I will ever fully see my reflection again

I was born on a set of stairs, higher than I was even aware
I looked down to enjoy the view, and I caught a glimpse of you
You were tired and hungry and cold
Your hands were hard and your face was old
Your legs collapsed as you fell and spat, "Have you found what you're looking for yet?"

My hands hold letters from an old past self
I'd say we're all alone
And I'd know how it felt to be one who's lost, and cold, and empty
And I would sit down on the ground
And the system would say, "Move on. There's nothing to see here
We've got to keep this engine going, and this resistance has us slowing
And if he's more for you, then he is less for us
And that's exactly the kind of people we can't trust."

And now I'm moving at the pace of the surrounding freezing air
Desiring to spit straight into the face of billionaires
But too damn far cowardly to do this on my own
I'm clinging to my theory books, Nietzsche, and Thoreau

My life's a flower and its growing, but I'm so insecure
The trick is always knowing it's the rain that keeps us pure
It's the food for my mind and body, and it brings me back to earth
So when the sun rises I can shut out all my doubt
There is a light and it never goes out
I'll burn a hole in my chest so you can see through
There is a light and it never goes out
I'll tell you things I thought I never knew
There is a light and it never goes out
We'll build a home for me and you
There is a light and it never goes out
I'll see the world for what I want it to be and nothing else
