Red and Black

Tue, 06/24/2014 - 16:44 -- natc66

Look up at the sky

Look down at your shoes

Rain is falling

And tears are falling too

 

Say hello to your faults

Say goodbye to your dreams

All these words

Are just rips in our seams

 

The sky is red

And the dawn is here

Don't check my bed

Because no one is near

 

Look up at your dad

Look down at your chest

Childhood lies

You should have confessed 

 

Say hello to your sins

Say goodbye to your God

Rip out your lungs

And scream how we're taught

 

The sky is red

And the dawn is here

Don't check my bed

Because no one is near

 
Look up at the sky
Look down at your chest
All of these things
You must confess
 
Say hello to your faults
Say hello to your sins
When your insides come out
You stuff them back in
 
And the sky is black
And the storm is here
I said don't turn back
Because I'm anywhere but near
 
But when the sky is red
And the dawn is here
Don't check my bed
Because I'm really here
