life can be senseless
I try to make sense of it
flashing fake smiles at my friends
beats defenselessness 
I cannot clean up a mess
without making more
it’s time to settle the score

I can’t be charming
if you can’t be charmed
if you give me everything that I want
I will disarm
you are the only one
who can stop me from giving up
and just my luck

you always have the fall before the lift
whether you drink to remember
or drink to forget what you did
I am the closest thing
to a modern day poet fraud
but I met god
in a velvet elvis painting that I painted myself
in a bar where I was
pulling off the bottom shelf
when I had to quit before I killed myself
I met him there and I was scared

and so I asked god if he could fix my flaws
he said I gave them to you 
I know they are killing you
but I'm not done with you yet

I can be a wreck with my friends
to act impressive
I can drink too much and then
curse away the sadness
ranting like a lunatic
walking with a bottle of wine
and I’m not fine because
I spent ten years on the road
that made me different
I created patterns of thought
got new perspective
I was just once immigrant son
of a silenced preachers wife
but black and white both died

so when I asked god if he could fix my heart
he said I gave it to you 
I know it’s broken in two
but I’m not done with you yet

I once met god in an apartment floor and said I give it to you
I’ve got nothing more
and I’m not done with you yet
