midnight stop on the street red light  
feet on the ground and it feels right
quiet besides the engine I
escape into paradise
it goes green and I’m back at top speed
not another body in sight  
i am this perspective
I’m the witness tonight
I am alone but I'm alive
every drop of holy water
comes from the ocean
every atom in my body
comes from exploding stars
billions of years ago

outside craning your neck blue sky
stretching your back with your arms wide
talking deeps breaths to purify  
you’re pretty sure you that you
could be certified
there is no god-damned thing in sight
it’s all deemed good in his eyes 
you are this perspective
you’re here to witness the light
you are alone but you're alive 

all that rises must converge
its only pain that makes us learn
exclusive, separate
turns infinite to infant
so I dive in and I get burned
the depths are deep and dark and hurt
baptize and resurrect 
each death a new perspective

every drop is holy water
all of us are sons and daughters
every breath inhaled
is heaven sent
