Send out a plea
Answer me, answer me
I will throw myself down in front of it

Whatever it may be
I have faith now
I send my faith out

Come home with a house
In a safe neighborhood
Pictures on the shelf

Smile at ourselves
The accomplishment of capture
It’s never over

Programming and reactions
Scars and healing

A nail through the word
Made flesh

Made mouth
Made page
Made wine

I spill my cup
For the ghosts
Holy and hungry

Stain and smear my body
Lift soul up
To see what

You see
I believe

It’s nothing
First and easy
Lay it in me

Jesus Christ said the shotgun
