Taste of Your Own Tongue

lyrics

The less I own, the better off I can be
free to go where I please
but where do I need to be that isn't right here
my feet are planted in the earth
and I'm a patron to the sun
my skin is carpet for the leaves
and with my chapped and chalky cheeks
I'm a mass of imposition, with these limits I can't squeeze

It took me seven years of writing everything down
to fully understand the words
Now I'll clear my walls
I'll throw out my books
and I'll start it over again

Finally it feels like a bigger part of me can be calm between the breeze
I found the beauty in believing that days I number make me wise
I found a comfort in the struggle
and learned the words were never mine
