“The Devil is a Shaking Boy”

(from Citizen Seven’s Come Come Look You Not Weary, Come Awry the Morning Will Heal Thee)

You put the devil inside of your bones
That shaking boy he’s afraid to be alone
You’ve made amends with the darkness of your soul
But the fire feels like it’s been there all along

And now you start to blush when you hide
That skin and burn
You look so much like the child you once were

I watched the color escape from your cheeks
That shaking earth steals the kindness of purity
And your golden eyes see the horror of gravity
The miracle only comes when you’re on your knees

And now you start to blush when you hide
That you are wrong
You look foolish like the child you once loved

Processing
Processing
All the wrong colors
The bright ones feel better to soften your anger
And no one will notice the change through the window
They stare in so eager to witness your miracle

Taking
You’re taking
All of the coincidence
Pushing it together in the back of your conscience
Your enemies lay there all struck with confusion
They never have meant to be more than illusion

You’re hard
On your knees
Searching for all the answers
You find one in every thing you figure that matters
And no one will notice the change through the window
They stare in so eager to witness your miracle
