No, oh God

Listen Mother, listen

Do you hear that gentle beating?

Could you tell me what it is?

No, oh God, you couldn’t tell

The beating of my broken heart

Look Mother, look

Do you see that angel weeping?

Could you tell me why it is?

No, oh God, you don’t know

Weeping for all my lack of believing

Feel Mother, feel

Do you feel the cold metal kissing?

Could you say how sharp it is?

No, oh God, you can’t feel it

Kissing its way into my veins

Try Mother, try

Do you know I’m trying to?

Could you even understand why?

No, oh God, you’ll never understand

Trying, but we’re both failing
