TEAR-STAINED TRUTH

lyric11

When I go ballistic,
Tears a river to be dammed,
Don’t want your damn statistics.
Statistics all be damned.
The pain won’t cease.
It’s bulletproof.
Ibelisse,
Gimme tear-stained truth.

Ibelisse, Ibelisse,
Daughter of the honest priest.
You give arms to amputees,
Ibelisse.

When I need direction,
Cast iron truths rot with rust.
When I need connection,
Tear-stained truth is all I trust.
My soul needs drink,
My soul needs food.
Ibelisse,
Gimme tear-stained truth.

Ibelisse, Ibelisse,
Hot tears running down your cheeks
Water all the wand’ring sheep,
Ibelisse.

Buckets of rain fall around me.
Tear-filled buckets, they just drown me.
Sometimes truth is all taboo.
Tear-stained truth is all I use.

The Man-God came to find me
Lost inside the looking glass,
Demons all behind me,
Chewing on my checkered past.
Down at a river rendezvous,
Ibelisse
Gave me tear-stained truth.

Ibelisse, Ibelisse,
Taming all the wayward beasts
While the haggard angels weep.
Ibelisse.
