lyrics

In the temple
The rain is more an alter to me
Than your conjured words
I am opened
When the moon turns the earth to sterling
And no sound is heard

Keep to myself or give up myself
A standoff between silence and a lie
But I am for sound in the context of light
I won’t close my eyes to stifle a cry

I have felt it
All the vanity in my efforts
To be who I’m not
But if David
Can be hailed as a king, imperfect
Why should I be false?

Keep to myself or give up myself
A standoff between silence and a lie
But I am for sound in the context of light
I won’t close my eyes to stifle a cry

I am alone
In that holiest of all moments
I am who I am
I’m a child flawed
Who loves water and green and music
More than you sometimes

Keep to myself or give up myself
A standoff between silence and a lie
But I am for sound in the context of light
I won’t close my eyes to stifle a cry
