How I Am Living

After Foreigner's God by Hozier


I see shameless believers

and I’m brought to my knees, never

redemption, always pain,

they call themselves the purest,

they rewrite grief to protect God,

death is palatable

with bloody wine to swallow

down, down

below is where

God truly is, lying

underneath mountains

of language, pretty pastel

Pharisees rubbing against

the grain.
