lyrics

A Glorious Mess

A beautiful scene, mass produced
Blue and green, cut and reduced
We boxed it up, shipped it out
Jumbled up and turned around

We laid it out on the table
Studied the picture on the box
A beautiful reflection
Of an artists touch
But the pieces were jumbled
A gorgeous mess
Now we're praying to God
Make some sense

Of this glorious mess in front of me
These mixed up pieces blue and green
The wonder of these tangled trees
Bathing in a deep blue sea

This fractured earth, broken down
Beautiful birth, selling out
There's still hope, there's still ways
Deeper than oceans, stronger than faith
We laid it out on the table
Studied the picture on the box
A beautiful reflection
Of an artists touch
But the pieces were jumbled
A gorgeous mess
Now we're praying to God
Make some sense

Of this glorious mess in front of me
These mixed up pieces blue and green
The wonder of these tangled trees
Bathing in a deep blue sea

I'm puzzled by the notion
Waking from my dreams
There's love just like an ocean
But it seems out of reach
There's faith like a fire
All these burning dreams
The ashes are flying
Spelling out peace

We laid it out on the table
Studied the picture on the box
A beautiful reflection
Of an artists touch
But the pieces were jumbled
A gorgeous mess
Now we're praying to God
Make some sense

Of this glorious mess in front of me
These mixed up pieces blue and green
The wonder of these tangled trees
Bathing in a deep blue sea
