venite adoremus Dominum

lyrics

In the weatherproof panes, the reflected room
stands like a ruined temple amid the snow.
The glowing plastic Christ in the yard across the way
blazes in the chest of your ghost.

A child is shivering in the cold.
We must bring him silver and gold.

Stumble out from the stifling heat of the house.
The wind nearly knocks you to your knees.
It picks up with a frenzied intensity —
rips the breath from your mouth, your heart skips a beat —
demanding recompense or something.

A child is shivering in the cold.
We must bring him silver and gold.
