Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Highlight. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
Pieces of you
you're mother’s child / but night lays you down / hair aflame, wild look in your eye / naked belly to the ground a forest fire / nibbles at your veins / crawls up your arm / runs away with your mind / and burns dry thoughts like leaves
eyes stare up / but something's in the way / in the bible only angels have wings / and the rest must wait to be saved a dry tongue / screams at the sky / but the wind just breathes words in / as a strange bird tries to fly
pieces of us die every day / as though our flesh were hell / such injustice, as children we are told / that from god we fell where are my angels? / where's my golden one? / where's my hope / now that my heroes have gone? / some are being beaten / some are being born / and some can't tell / the difference anymore
