Don't follow please
Cause I wander aimlessly toward the lights of the city
The heat of the buildings, the sound of the sea

And the seabirds see me
And they can see three hundred thousand surrounding me
Making an island of my tongue and my bare feet

The hummingbird hides in the orange tree
While the raven is shouting his plea
And we watch from our window for someone to lead

The night makes it clear
That I won't fool anyone here full of my foreign fear
In the dusk light hiding I won't disappear

Love drives out fear
But fear steals from love and my scared heart has taken so much
That my arms can't hold up the weight

So there are tired dark trees that surround me
And they're growing the loneliest things
I lay in between them and try and find sleep
But the roots come up from underneath

I hide in the black earth
I hide in the seed
I hide in my sunburn
I hide incomplete

Our dreams dig deep in a rainbow
But we clothe ourselves in blue and grey
They say it's shame that is keeping us safe
But it's shame that keeps us locked away
