Wire you up,
To wire you up.

And what of the faith that it lost?
Hopes it left clearly discarded.
And what does a vacancy cost,
In a home of the newly departed?

What was there stood in its way,
Oceans that could not be charted.
And now it’s over half way,
But it feels like it’s only just started.

So alive your heaven,
Builds me over time,
You’ll break her.

Wire you up, to wire you up, to wire you up.

And why did it wire it up in a foreign way?
To hold it up?
To show it up?
And grievances in its life of a whole new kind,
Just stopped itself growing up.


So alive your heaven,
Builds me over time you’ll break her.
To come around when it’s safer,
Come around when it’s safer.
Growing wings wherever,
Roots me to the ground, endeavour,
To come around when it’s safer.
Come around when it’s safer.

I killed it.
I willed it.
