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
They take a piece of us with them
And holes in clouds are minutes passing
Resend this line and several ties
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 world inside
The crack in the porcelain

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

Lyrics by:

Geoff Rickly
