I'm not sure how these marks came to be on my heart
In your bed as I slept with the devil, had a brawl
When I awoke, pray to God it had been but a draw, oh my
What a mess I will be if I've lost

Now I dream of the sky running towards me
Liquid like an ocean
My little brother is there and I carry him
Like a newborn
It seems I'm always lifting him to escape
From rabid beasts and storms behind my eyelids
He is like the weight of a quarter
But in daylight, he is broad and older

Oh Lord, call me back, back to you
I will come seal my soul like an envelope
Use your spit, lick it shut
Bring your knives, use your tools
Perform open heart
The water is scalding
So cold that it burns
But when I lay in your lap
When you slip
Oh my heart
Oh my heart
