What We Become

without you we turn into beasts
with foul breath and sharp teeth
we tear each other and rip into ourselves
and we are all for sell

without you we kick and we scream
as we cry out we forgot how to dream
the darkness spreads and our lights grow dim
as our ghosts wonder what happened to them.

our steeples will come crashing down
smashing all underneath to the ground
our towers of Babel stretching into the air
when for You we no longer care

we are like Peter when he did deny
we are like Judas leading to you being crucified
as the heavens wept when the Son did die
our towers of Babel still standing in the sky
