You burned down the orphanage and poisoned your mother
And the flames, they were seen for miles and miles
And the soles of your shoes could not carry it forward
And you star you stared, and stood and smiled
And you thought about all that had troubled you lately
And it rose as smoke from the burning ground
And you spoke through your teeth as you turned to walk from it
And God help me how I miss it all now

And never will I find anything that will bind me to all that I knew
Until I find out I will bury my heart beneath the dirt, the soil, and the roots

So you buried your heart beneath the dirt and the roots
And you ran so fast, you ran so far
And you turned to see birds peck the meat from the soil
And they flew so fast and they flew so far

And you thought about all that had troubled you lately
And it rose as smoke from the burning ground
And you spoke through your teeth as you turned to walk from it
And God help me how I miss it all now

And never will I find anything that will bind me to all that I knew
Until I find out I will bury my heart beneath the dirt,
And the soil
And the roots
