lyrics

We used to have a better knowing,
Before the reflection started showing,
We knew in sweeping fits of laughter,
Crying eyes and wordless chatter,

A terrific unity followed us in,
Perhaps only what knows else-ways is sin,

Oh you concocted image,
Devil and angel in that visage,
Recipient of grandest dreams,
Stumbling block of largest beams,
Can I unsee your smiling face?
Can I wrest myself from your embrace?

Heart of a child can we ever go back,
To a sense before all became white and black,
Cause I looked in that mirror to see that small other,
Looked back to the smiling face of my mother,
And I told my first lie,
That this image was the sum of “I”

Oh you concocted image,
Devil and angel in that visage,
Recipient of grandest dreams,
Stumbling block of largest beams,
Can I unsee your smiling face?
Can I wrest myself from your embrace?
