lyrics

I am an eyeball
I am nothing else at all
I am a particle of God
I do not worship what they taught me
I chose to choose confusion over fraud
Why is there so much beauty
oh I want to taste it all
Lead me to the apple
I’m ready for the fall
I am a window
I am sunlight on the sill
I am the photograph you took the day you kissed me
I wonder if you miss me
I wonder if you will
I am a prism
refracting you in every possibility
Why is there so much beauty
oh, I want to taste it all
Lead me to the apple
I’m ready for the fall
I am a slave to the slant of light
that falls upon your face
at the restaurant
If you tell me what you want
I’ll give it if I can
I am a phoenix
Singed but rising in spite of everything
why is there so much beauty
and how can I ever taste it all
lead me to the apple
I’m ready for the fall
Tell me why is it so beautiful it hurts me
and how can I ever taste it all
Lead me to the apple
I’m ready for the fall
