The Flood

My heart pours out on this paper

Like the blood that poured out from your organ

Brick by brick the cathedral falls

Protection rotting, no more walls

Am I losing my sanity?

Did YOU lose yours??

I'm patching cracks frantically

Renovating a dying building that was abandoned

Abandoned by you all those years ago

 

You should have seen the people amassed

We DID care about you

Through the stormy high seas

Through the turbulant seas that you found so harsh

Did you think we were untrue?

We were here for you, why did you never see the ark?

When you put that bullet in your head

MY heart went dead

Now your body's broken bread
