Shelter

From The Vault circa 2006.


Go ahead and send a hurricane
Through what remains of me
Can’t begin to overwhelm
Everything clouded by debris
Hammer down the picket fence
It won’t make it through the night
These bomb shelters can’t protect
What we never let inside

Steady now
Stabilize
On the ground
Til it subsides
Hold your focus
Smile wide
Such a pretty girl
Such captivating eyes

At the very least a devastating shock wave
To blow the roof right off this place
Nothing missing that can’t be replaced
Nothing given that wasn’t meant to break
Burn a hole where we’ll throw the coffin
Pour concrete to keep it tight
To your knees, bed and plead
This riot’s gonna last all night

Steady now
Stabilize
On the ground
Dead weight aside
Standing tall
They command
Such a brave and smart handsome young man

Nothing missing that can’t be replaced
Nothing given that wasn’t meant to break

Nothing missing that can’t be replaced
Nothing given that wasn’t meant to break

Steady now
Steady now
Stabilize
