Held in hands, a warm cup/ Of skin always taken in by peers/ And friends and the heightened fears/ Over the years/ Now I know I'm not like everyone
In this head I see the ground/ You came from, unknown, undug/ From where you were staying in/ A backyard bed until/ We came together
Raspberry, in my hand/ You feel alright but I don't/ Know if I am/ I can't change/ What I am right now, but/ I'll be fine in the next life
I know I can say, I'm honest/ With myself and with/ My red tasty gem/ And sure they will try, but/ They can't take away / My secret loving friend
And on a good day, my mind/ Is like the country...green wide open/ A breath of zen that's nice/ On the eyes, lonely, without a prayer
Take the trip that I have / I am at risk/ But I guess you know...
Explosions/ From the goldfish bowl/ Visions/ Of blue girls crying stars/ The more the garden sings/ The harder it gets to stay in/ There are a lot of choices/ So many voices ruling me/ So many of them at once/ Yelling, "Everything's a mess"...I know
