If you can picture the whole world spinning
and pieces of rock standing still;
And picture that just not compared to us,
they are in motion.

And picture the difference in sounds
as you can picture the movement of time throughout your day;
And draw together everything you hear
as one whole song in the act of being sung.


If you could slow me down to where I think I’m supposed to be,
well I might just end up dead, so I’ll keep this pace instead;
And if dilated into sunlight, felt my cells drip apart;
Felt the essence of my heart without my mind to put it right;

If my feet crumbled every time I put to earth,
If my fingers blossomed every time I touched the bark;
If the water flowed within me,
then I might remember: none is without me.


I am vibration in the air,
I am the dirt that’s all you’ve ever touched with your skin;
I am vibration in your skin;
I am your skin
which connects you, not abstracts you from your world.
