I'm watching the birds in my backyard,
It's the first time I've noticed my skin.
The landscape changes.
But there are no words for this kind of day,
Or the rhythms I see in the wind.
Their stirring inside me, abiding within.
Dissolve and release.
And everything I see awakes in me.
A nameless truth that fills and builds in me.
Brick by brick layed out then stripped away.
Pull the wool out from the thorns and leaves.
It's all meant to turn you in
Before you walk with machines.
So burn and return, encircle me again.
Before you wept, before you slept you washed it down.
As it took you in.
But all was well.
Your fearless tears that you laid on my cheek, "Darling I'm drifting."
As it took me in.
But all was well
You communed in the silent language of the heart with me.
As it took us in.
And all was well.
I have found the safest place.
The river, the road, the train and track.
And all are safe to travel by.
Yes, all are safe to travel by.
So in the wake of our progress,
It's so often we forget we're born of earth
It's a humbling kind of thing, Because I can't beleive the calm instilled in me.
I know there's more to life than this one.
