Offering

  • Holy life that you liken to nothing bursts at the seams
    All the while stem the tide, I have seen it in my dreams
    Here a fount in the desert, it was more than I could be
    Human life as a lesson, you will see the mess of me

    Hear it there, feel it swarming underneath
    Oh, when love came for me, the blue and salton sea
    A thousand lives lived in circles, a planet burning at the seams
    Skeletal sand as a lesson that became an offering

    River nigh, river light, sent us burning out to sea
    Holy love, if you let it, never wanted it to be
    You and I, you, a lesson, but never offered it to me
    Human life gone wild, it was not enough for me

    You and I, you and I won't grow
    You and I, in our wild, won't listen
    It was rife, it was rife with unholy offerings
    It was rife, it was rife with the flowers of deceit
