  • Shattered in history
    Shattered in paint
    Oh, and the lengths that I'd
    Stay up late
    But brought to my space
    The wonderful things I've learned to waste

    I shoulda known
    That I shouldn't hide
    To compromise and to covet
    All what's inside
    There is no design
    You'll have to decide
    If you'll come to know if I'm the faithful kind

    Time and again
    (Got all that I need)
    It's time to be brave
    Content to the phrases
    That at dawn, we ain't mazes
    Just some kind of pages

    This for my sister
    That for my maple
    It's not going the road I'd known as a child of God
    Nor to become stable
    (So what if I lose? I'm satisfied)

    Am I dependent in what I'm defending
    And do we get to hold what faith provides?
    Fold your hands into mine
    Do I believe in
    Seeing every time

    I know it's lonely in the dark
    And this year's a visitor
    And we have to know that faith declines
    I'm not out all the way Writer/s: Brandon Burton, Camilla Staveley-Taylor, Francis Starlite, Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon
