Lyrics:

Lord I give You everything inside of me
I give You everything that I can’t find
Like the letters that I wrote to myself
when I was losing my mind

I bought an Ipod thought it would fix me
but I haven’t plugged it in two years
I booked a tour called it vacation
but everytime I leave home in tears

Call it disruptive I’d say I’m lucky
I’d ruptured my internal affairs
My heart was broken, I needed a new one, new one, new one, new one
I’ll be in the basement making repairs

I got a mountain bike when I was 15,
a faithful friend with nearly 20 gears
I rode it once in my new city,
they stole off the back of my stairs

Call it disruptive I’d say I’m lucky
I’d ruptured my internal affairs
My heart was broken, I needed a new one, new one, new one, new one
I’ll be in the basement making repairs

Another birthday, another year past
I wish I felt like celebrating
Instead, the sadness is rubbing my shoulders
And the downward spiral is repeating
But it’s existential; it’s not real
these feelings that I must have made up
But they’re real enough that my self-hatred
is something that I need to interrupt

So, Lord, I give You everything inside of me
the brokenness that I’ve been trying to hide
Like the parts inside me of that I lost
when I was running so blind

Call it disruptive
I’d say I’m lucky I’d ruptured my internal affairs
My heart was broken, I needed a new one, new one, new one, new one
I’ll be in the basement making repairs
I’ll be in the basement making repairs
I’ll be in the basement making repairs
