don kirby: Music

this is what i need

(don kirby)
this is what you want, this is what i need
this is what you said, though i cannot see
this is what you want, this is what i need

the clay fights the potter's hand
the clay does not understand
the wheel spins with dizzying speed
i lose my balance, i'm on my knees

and this is what you want, this is what i need
your hand at the wheel, i upon my knees
this is what you want, this is what i need

we wrestle with angels, we wrestle with the wind
we kick against the goads, we enjoy our sin
the blind lead the blind, the halt lead the lame
we tumble in the ditch and then we cry out your name

and this is what you want, this is what i need
you with open ear wait for me to speak
this is what you want, this is what i need

i lay my bricks as build i must
they crumble into dirt and dust
i curse the rain, i curse the gloom
but from this soil sweet flowers bloom

and this is what you want, this is what i need
riches from the ruin, splendor from the seed
this is what you want, this is what i need
