I would like to burn this down.
I would like to burn this down.
I would like to see it melt in yellow.
And observe a cloud of blackness.
A cloud of blackness rise.
Watch it rise - as it is wrath himself.
Watch it rise.
Crows will flee the scene as if to remind me how long it's been since I have seen a dove.
Since I have seen a dove.
Melt in yellow as I do.
Exhaustion...
Exhaustion and...
Mother...
Mother of tribulation.
Wound by wound.
I torture myself.
Wound by wound.
I will perservere.
Whiteness, present yourself as I know you are the sky and anchor of my being.
Woo!
What we've learned turns to paper.
What we've known is like cigarettes.
Oh!
Formaldehyde fingers.

    It's talking about destroying all of our sins, praying to God for forgiveness.

    "Crows will flee the scene as if to remind me how long it's been since I have seen a dove." This means that he is so accustom to wrong doings, when he catches himself sinning, it is just a reminder of how long it has been since he has done right.

    "Whiteness, present yourself, as I know you are the sky and anchor of my being." He is asking God to come to him and save him. He is praying for forgiveness.
