My dreams are not any stranger than how I make sense of things by day I seem to remember all of you in oddly human ways Let me pretend Oh I see you do not offer me Do not offer me I know what sounds good in my ears He knows what his idols told him I nurture my delicate baby We nurture our practices but do some things that stunt our memories Let me make roots Wonder if my remedies live up And I miss your culture It’s about letting go to me I miss the days when I thought you’d love me endlessly Now I’m content cuz it’s all just as potent And we’ve all admired the awfulness The boys show me the bridges, streets of secrets, tell me local history Nod my head to show them all the interest but they don’t ever ask me I can pretend while I’m able It lives and breathes the same themes live and breathe But im still just as free And I miss your culture It’s about letting go to me I miss the days when I thought you’d love me endlessly Now I’m content cuz it’s all just as potent And we’ve all admired the awfulness

I’m still like a child in oh so many ways more ways than you I’m sure And that’s why I’ve reached this point where I am smothered and dampened In my own skin Cant even remember what it’s like to be a bird on a wire Wire in the city, tall post far away from all the hard working people I need time It takes me such time But still look me in the eye and ask more seriously Don’t hesitate to stop this train cuz folks believe in you And we that believe all have our own vices Smothered and dampened in our own ways I have years and years of undoing to do and it’s a lonely road to respect Its two steps forward and two steps back leaving me where I started A child at heart and in practice All we can do is try to make beauty I feel the tugs on my heart strings so hard And so selfishly in all directions I hate what you play but I cant help but love when my heart strings get tugged I splurge every day but it gets me no closer to knowing I’m loved When lay people work on their bodies so hard I double take it But they’ve got a kick in the ass from behind and a spine that can take it
