lyrics

I met a man needled and inked  every other day for a year
tattooed gods from head to toe he was shattered don’t I know

when you’re shattered there isn’t one place
when you’re shattered and fallen from grace
when you’re shattered there isn’t one place   
you won’t go you won’t go

how did this happen how did he get through
all he’d seen and all that he knew
came unraveled he came unfurled
waving to all he waved off the world
he was shattered don’t I know

when you’re shattered there isn’t one place
when you’re shattered and fallen from grace
when you’re shattered there isn’t one place   
you won’t go you won’t go

the quiet rage the losing score
his buckled knees and esprit de corps
his broken self becomes decor
like mirror shards across the floor

sugar skulls more fragile than eggs
crack the shell the question begs
when you're shattered don’t I know
when you’re shattered that’s how it goes
when you’re shattered don’t I know

when you’re shattered there isn’t one place
when you’re shattered and fallen from grace
when you’re shattered there isn’t one place  
you won’t go  you won’t go
