My labour vindicates me
My busy days are happy
Building the worlds for me to
Disappear into then give to you

But in the still of evening
In the rookery I am roosting
Waiting for you to find me
To bind me, define me, to justify me

The soul of man it stands complete
It walks above all worldly need
But the body yearns to unify
I’m kneeling and waiting

Justify me

I am a lonely beast who
Is longing to be released through
Rattling the bars of my life
By howling at stars in the night

But I know that you can tame me
You can give me a home and name me
And you need a real companion
To close the lips of the canyon

The soul of man it stands complete
The love of God its only need
But the body yearns to unify
I’m lying in wait here

Justify me
