unseen origin, where did you grow?
assimilation, where did you go?
consensus, love to say i know
but your inflection hits a note
it's a gesture far from home
a wrinkle in your brow

all day to sit, a stone
just one action, see it through
not worth it just to do
not allowed to be someone else
and take back all you've done
sweep me out the door

what will i know?
who will i see?
what will i let happen to me again?

until i go home and stretch out
lay me in the flowers
oh, let's erode
and we'll buy back whatever we sold
oh, it's so old
to decay before you can grow
