in regards to the cynic in me / you're no longer bound by history take your words and set them free / they hold weight but no longer gravity in regards to the sailor in me / you're no longer bound by your house keys unlock the land and take the sea / you're buoyant / no longer gravity flowers bloom up through the cracks of doom in historic ruins hope blooms in regards to the cynic in me / you're no longer bound by history take your words and set them free / they hold weight but no longer gravity crystal notes / soaring up from stoic boats encircling in castle moats / bridges float in regards to the sailor in me / you're no longer bound by your house keys unlock the land and take the sea / you're buoyant / no longer gravity

shed my skin / paper thin / traced a map upon it / of where i've been / can't color it in / lines only begin i don't know much about winning / i only know beginnings paper door / paper thin / i'll wait outside / till you invite me in and watch the world spin / cause I got nothing / i got nothing i don't know much about winning / i only know beginnings it seems these ideas just send people spinning
3.
who's playing with us / with our building blocks put down like tots in our afternoon cots snug and confident / that's when grown ups take what they want out loud who's making us into tiny bots who live between to connect their dots who holds this globe / spins it like a top out loud this u.s. scene is like halloween with a bitter pumpkin head on every screen and look /we're on fire / and they're spouting gasoline out loud
4.
why take aim / because aimless is drifting / but drifting is easier and easier brings peace / till it lies in pieces and so we go into our silence / we go the shot energy diffuses the pieces / that scatter / to gather up to carry / easier to leave and so we go into our silence / we go leave it behind
5.
thanksgiving and the earth feels flat just like this black or white table we gather at to sit with friends think of the conversations lost at the other end a million human dream millions of hands grasp across the ravine on each bank our heals dig in as we tug to close the seam how we've been bleeding rivers that keep our sins afloat a flood of blood tossing a tiny boat filled with a million migrants their language stuck in their throat encircling our privilege in a stormy moat a million human dream millions of hands grasp across the ravine on each bank our heals dig in as we tug to close the seam how we've been bleeding rivers
