Come down here and look me in the eye
Tell me to my face that you did this
So I can shove you in the chest
So I can glare at you with longing
So I can give this black, inexplicable pain a silent voice
So you can grasp the back of my head with your nail-scarred hand
And burn a cross into my petrified heart
I will lock eyes with you
I will dig my shaking hands into your chest and not let go
Take me through to the other side
Shatter the chrysalis
The breath of heaven feels like dragon’s fire today
Don’t let go
Part the waters
Sound the alarm
Break down the wall
And take us in to the land of promise
Turn the slave into a daughter
And bring us home.
