lyrics

I did not tame the wild around me
Though they sometimes will tell me their stories
It's not the same
Though sometimes what they say is so strange

I want to write only what happened
You decide what it means

My thoughts may break away when I'm speaking
A flurried thing, a flock of birds
My mind may often fly to high corners
What I see from here is so absurd

I want to show you
How it all means nothing
In swathes of color
In simple structures
How when I fly away, I'll leave you my shoes
Maybe a list of words that tell only the truth

How I did not tame the wild around me
But I listened most of the time
