You waged your war with no contempt
You cracked your spine as you sat and wept
You’re keeping still to keep alive
You forged your name in the lake of fire
Where you tossed your sins and softly sighed
You’re keeping still to keep alive

Sit solemnly still, may the patterns in your breathing make you feel a little closer to yourself
Sit solemnly still, may the movements of your chest rise and fall, the rhythm is your medicine
And oh my god what kind of shit are we in?
We’re all a puzzle and the pieces are wearing thin
Just hold my head close to your chest cause I’m about to leave
Well our doors are closed, and our closets are locked
From keeping other peoples’ bones tucked away in the dark
Well you can keep your deceit; you can keep it in your teeth

You’re the bastard son of some blessed saint
You may bare his face but never his name
For if they should know then who would they praise
For a life of martyrdom and a life of grace
