lyrics

You made me lowered
When you splayed your hand to cut the light,
And you showed me how to trace the night
And I made my paper gods.
The jagged bottle, shackles, ashes,
Candles and dust,
Strings coiled with rust.

I remember when you played for me
And the flints of your words
Beat time, your nickel-and-dime
Daughter, wrought her
From the water where I wept,
Corkscrewed my hair,
Stitched the weave deft -
One thread for every sin, you vowed,
And you gone.

And I made my paper gods.
The jagged bottle, shackles, ashes,
Candles and dust,
Strings coiled with rust.

I remember your strip-light eyes
And the jolt of your pulse
Struck nails, your ship masts and sails,
You lied, eyes wide,
Said we should fill our vessel
With dried rose, your pocket bible,
Too deep to scoop the water -
One thread for every sin, you vowed,
And you gone.

But I am trying not to forget
What went before
You broke the law
On Sinai stone, before you let
Me be lowered.

And I made my paper gods.
The jagged bottle, shackles, ashes,
Candles and dust,
Strings coiled with rust.

You made me lowered
When you splayed your hand to cut the light,
And you showed me how to trace the night
And I made my paper gods.
The jagged bottle, shackles, ashes,
Candles and dust,
Strings coiled with rust.
