A year alone: mistook the forest
for the trees and a house for a home.
A wandering mind swept out
the romance from under my feet.

Don't leave behind comfort
and knowledge for clouded minds,
my soul's an olive tree
and I'll be gnarled and twisted for centuries.

Is this my nature?
Have I a greater cause
outside these senses and laws?
Barbed wire fences and all,
you've staked me to five points;
My choice to break still remains.

We humbled ourselves in scenic sanctuaries
and took our place in the cliff-rock face
to let God lay waste to whatever he may.

But we failed to see he's you and me,
that corner of our brain we've yet to name.

Is this my nature?
Have I a greater cause?(x6)
