lyrics

I found a god under my bed
And lost him later in my head
Here's what I thought but never said,
I need you Salai

I looked for god when I learnt death
Is longer than seven lives lived
Too long I searched without a glimpse
And lost you Salai
Please don't leave

Its starting again
Pick up the pieces show me what they all meant
I'm shaking again
Just take my hand and stand and wait for the end

We're dying

I learnt a truth at birth
It stays with me and frays my seams
That my appearance defines everything but family

My lungs will stop breathing
My heart will stop beating
Think of this when you try and sleep
And be haunted like me

God came to me in my last breath
Spoke, "Did you take all that I gave?"
I turned my head and broke his gaze
He sighed and said, "Again, again"
