And I once knew a person
who could understand the way
the wind blew

And I tried to learn the language
but its as subtle as the mist
when the sun’s down

he’s up in the clouds now
he is drawing up the back
of each day

and no amount of crying out
could bring him down
he’s at a cross between

everyone would ask me
why I hadn’t spoke a word
in so long

the secret to the language
that is spoken from the soul
is its silence

all across the mountain
they went searching for my ghost
but I was hiding

and no amount of shouting out
could bring them down
without my body

mother can’t you hear me?
I’ve been blowing through the wind
this whole time

and no amount of crying out
could bring me down
because I am an animal

    I once knew a person
    who could understand the way
    the wind blew

    I tried to learn the language
    but it's as subtle as the mist
    when the sun is down

    he is up in the clouds now
    he is drawing up the back
    of each day

    No amount of crying now
    could bring him down
    he is at a cross between

    everyone would ask me
    why i hadn't spoke a word
    in so long

    the secret to a language
    that is spoken by the soul
    is its silence

    all across the mountain
    they went searching for my ghost
    but I was hiding

    No amount of shouting out
    could bring them down
    without my body

    Mother can't you hear me
    I've been blowing through the wind
    this whole time.

    No amount of crying now
    could bring me down
    I am an animal.
