Wikipedia has an article on
Porcelain
City of blue tile
Figure in ceramics
Where we reach out
Grab for porcelain

But it's too fragile to hold
And it shatters in our hands
In time, the seasons will seal these shards
Into, the slits that denote your wrists

Death is the answer
To calculations composed of motions that are the same
Secret and different
A missing alphabet with a message for us

When people die
(Die, die!)
They take a piece of us with them
(People die and die!)
And holes in clouds are minutes passing
(Die and die!)
Resend this line and several ties
(People die and die everyday!)
The skyline unfolds into explanation

But sometimes words give up
And silently walk off the edge of the page
And here the cry opens up and reveals the word inside
The crack in the porcelain
The crack in the porcelain
The crack in the porcelain (The crack in the porcelain)

The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
(Show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
(Show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
(Show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
The silent line of sky-lit eyes show
(Show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
The silent line...
(Show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)

When people die
(Die, die!)
They take a piece of us with them
(People die and die!)
And holes in clouds are minutes passing
(Die and die!)
Resend this line and several ties
(People die and die everyday!)
The skyline unfolds into explanation
