Step through his trampled wall, the unhinged door betrays it all
That far within our faith we were all waiting
The broken glass reflects the haze, it shines like endless holy days
Struggling to remember what they're celebrating

Well a God descended, and the real time ended
His light was lifted just above the law, and now we have to live
With what we did, with what we saw

Well you mend your clothes and patch your roof and slivers of God's
Shattered truth grow tender as the grass in clean swept yards
But a Savior came and told us how the truth was all around us now
Abandon house and field and gather up the stards

Well a God descended, and the real time ended
His light was lifted just above the law, and now we have to live
With what we did with what we saw

You build your faith with strength and duty
Build your love, but there's a beauty
Well you know the scriptures tell, there are a few shards left in hell
And if we wanted God we had to follow, follow him down, him down

There were pictures torn out of their frames and orgies
Where we lost our names, ending all with time's real desire
Well you ask how God can curse you thus
That's not a question asked by us
We burnt our books and beds, we fear we've lost the fire

And a God descended and the real time ended
His light was lifted just above the law, and now we have to live
With what I did with what we saw
