Upside Down Definitions by Matthew Martinez

This is how life comes to you

This is how life comes to you

It comes through

Slow death

Stolen breath

Torment and torture

Swollen face

Full disgrace

Blood stains all over

Sealed fate

Sealed graves

Death taking over

 

This is how life comes to you

This is how a king comes to you

It comes through

No rehearse

Peasant birth

Stables and mangers

Baby boys

Dying now

Imminent dangers

Royalty

On the run

Refugee strangers

 

This is how a king comes to you

This is how salvation comes to you

It comes through

Lost reign

Found pain

Giving of everything

Free life

Sacrificed

Friendly captivity

No release

Hands to feet

Bounded delivery

 

This is how salvation comes to you

This is how love comes to you

It comes through

Total risk

Wild pursuit

Painful infidelity

Broken trust

Broken flesh

Advocate for enemy

Perfect life

Sinful death

Symbol of abandon

This is how love comes to you

That is how Love came to you
