Original Face

I woke up without a name
I went to work without my brain
took one breath and everything changed

Something painful is feeding me love
split my skull to hatch a dove
now that's all there ever was

My veins fill with invisible blood
My pulse will deliver the flood
My tears fall from the sky
Who am I?

If I were you (and I am)
I'd let the question take my hand
If you were me (and you are)
You'd let the question take your heart
There's a light bulb in everyone
bright enough to swallow the sun
Earth and sky is all one taste
there is just the original face

I woke up and my head hurt
I had a mouthfull of blood and dirt
and my heart all over my shirt

Something painful is feeding me love
split my skull to hatch a dove
now it's all there ever was

My veins fill with invisible blood
My pulse will deliver the flood
My tears fall from the sky
Who am I?

If I were you (and I am)
I'd let the question take my hand
If you were me (and you are)
You'd let the question pierce your heart
There's a light bulb in everyone
big enough to swallow the sun
Every mask will be erased
There is just the original...

Face without skin or bones
Mind that knows but can't be known
Heart that wakes up from the dream
Eye that sees but can't be seen

If I were you (and I am)
I'd let the question take my hand
If you were me (and you are)
You'd let the question pierce your heart
Pierce the heart
