The Rainbow Sign

lyrics

I was walking in the moon / I felt my body split in two / My head's a star in the heavens / my feet are earth and mud and rain / Come bring to me what I do seek / but take away what I will reap / There is a scythe in the field / that cuts the roots I laid in the ground / Snow came down like a feather / and thunder quivered at the sound / My mind was dry in the white air / as if there was nothing left to learn / My head's a star in the heavens / my feet are earth and mud and rain / God gave noah the rainbow sign / won't be water but fire next time high / I'll find a strong voice then / and it will loosen me up from shame / I was born among the mountains / so I don't need to be born again / I'd wash my soul in the river / but some souls are made of silt and sand / REF / Every season comes the same / and I know that I cannot change it / but I can settle in the winter / I can plant myself in the spring / And if you see me running / you can embrace the falling rain / for when we run it is because / we have the freedom to stay / REF / And then my head comes back where you are / leave heaven up above in the stars
