Penholder

Album: digital download (2005)
  • I feel your eyes crawling over me
    As though I am something more than me
    But I don't have anything good enough to say
    I did not make myself this way

    I'll show you what he did,
    But I won't take the credit
    It's not mine anyway
    I just held the pen that day

    And I don't deserve this
    This time right now
    It's not something for which I can take the bow
    And I don't deserve this
    It wasn't me
    I can't take glory for something that I can't be
    I don't deserve this

    I know what perfection is like
    And I cannot stand before its might
    And I'm so far from what you think that I must be
    I just throw myself in mercy

    I'll show you what he did,
    But I won't take the credit
    It's not mine anyway
    I just held the pen that day

    And I don't deserve this
    This time right now
    It's not something for which I can take the bow
    And I don't deserve this
    It wasn't me
    I can't take glory for something that I can't be
    I don't deserve this
    This time right now
    It's not something for which I can take the bow
    And I don't deserve this

    And all the art that I supposedly create
    Is simply a faded reflection of something He's already made
