i’ve known storms
and arkless floods
been swallowed by whales
been turned into a pillar of salt
in service of a broken heart
been on the wrong side of righteousness
swallowed by the bloody sea
been myopic been slingshot
but i was knocked off my horse
changed my name
and been brought back from the dead
because all i ever had
were songs of redemption
songs of freedom
