lyrics

I am falsely identified, hypnotized and polarized
unsatisfied, yet pacified
now I look you in the eye

Project what you want on me
reflect what you need to see
refusing to be where you are
now woo me with your scar

My poetry is alchemy
and does not belong to me

Forgive my youth for trapping and freeing me
forgive the sun for feeding and blinding me
forgive the city and the rolling hills
forgive the majestic sea
forgive the moon for her gravity

I am ready for judgement day
go on and say what you've got to say
I already know the truth
I will not bow to you

I've spun around in circles for far too long
now my cage is open, you can't unhear a song
you can't unhear it

Forgive my youth for trapping and freeing me
forgive the sun for feeding and blinding me
forgive the city and the rolling hills
forgive the majestic sea
forgive the moon...

Can you forgive me for making the moon?
Can you forgive the world you see?
I've got a god-like longing with a human reach
