WORDS

AND

PROTECTION 

Stretch out my wrists and fingers. 

My teeth, white as a blank page. 

I am making impressions. 

My voice, starting to network. 

It’s nice to see you again. 

Lampshade, life of the party. 

 

And if you hear a distant sound, a teardrop in the sea. 

It’s probably nothing, but it might be me. Needing... 

 

Protection. 

I need protection. 

 

I see beauty in profile. 

Just like some feathered angel, 

floating through on a warm wind. 

My hands move to her body. 

Soft skin is turning to ice. 

I chose just the wrong moment, again. 

 

And if I say my prayers tonight with you in my bed. 

Help me to believe those words aren’t dead. Give me... 

 

Protection. 

I need protection. 

 

Give me, give me protection. 

 

And if I’ve saved a seat for me somewhere 

underground 

let me hear the tiniest of sounds. I need... 

 

Protection.
