Alabaster and Porcelain

December 8, 2008
By Randall Burns, Indianapolis, IN

Ain’t we all just pretty much,
Alabaster and porcelain upon His shelves,
We’re so weak, oh we’re so weak, oh…
Can’t we all but help ourselves to our own damnation, $3.81 at the gas station buys your relief
Five minutes away from your kids and you can stand them again
Ain’t we all pretty much,
Alabaster and porcelain upon His shelves,
Started out pretty clean in her blood and tears,
He made us pristine in the midst of fear,
oh We’re her fears now we’re her fears…
But now we’re all pretty spent.
Ain’t we all pretty much
Alabaster and porcelain upon His shelves,
Set up so neat but afraid to fall,
Set up so neat but just for show, that’s all
Oh, alabaster and porcelain just as clean as day
Can hide so much dirt and sweep your shame away. Ain’t we all pretty much Alabaster and porcelain upon His shelves.
