  • Glasswork shards decorate this house
    We're tossing lost arts out windows
    The splash and jangle of a secret science defined
    You claim some golden age is upon us

    You always loved short story form:
    The science behind it, the hidden verse
    You live for flame, your re-attraction's new
    The leather's pulled from a secret room

    Close that stare into morning sun
    When the dots form into connections
    If I'm honest, you come to mind
    But baby, I'm not

    If I'm honest, you come to mind
    But baby, I'm not

    The impacts pound dust into working script
    We stare in wonder at the steps we skipped
    Tripping wires we have so carefully crossed
    The science behind it at a perfect loss

    You're my Lord, you're my Shepherd
    Careful, kid, no one gets hurt
    You made me

    It's a pal of the French we took
    The science behind it was a dirty look
    Seul joue pas de rock 'n' roll [French speakers feel free to correct this]
    Seul joue pas de rock 'n' roll pour moi [and this, too]

    You're my Lord, you're my Shepherd
    Careful, kid, no one gets hurt
    You made me
    You made me this way
