i can't believe
what i want to receive
growing in faith day by day
breaking the bones
of all that i have known
to push myself out of the way

drop all control
and you swallow me whole
feeling my skin in the light
as i lay down
the things i've done so long
carefully one at a time

so i hang and say
let go me today
from where i am
not where i'm going

when i get to you
through these knots and glue
can you untie
and wash me over?

and so i make space
for this replacement
letting the light hit my fear
for i have faith
that as i empty
pieces of you will appear
