lyrics

(Verse 1)
I’m lyin here under this great sun
the world keeps spinnin in more ways than one
but it’s all just a metaphor for my mind
Don’t know what I got til it’s gone
send myself to hell clinging onto what was
so in the name of change I project tomorrow
Now anxiety is behind the wheel
I’m tryin to go north but it’s headin south
do I go with the flow or be torn to pieces

(Pre-Chorus 1)
Perched between my sanity and my sense
this is why the caged bird sings

(Chorus 1)
I am Jesus in denial
I am silence consumed by sound
I am wisdom within without anyone who will hear
I am child in need of mother’s care
I am joy on the brink of despair
I am a shadow unaware that its source is the sun
always in hiding, or else

(Verse 2)
On the run
blisters on my soul, dripping confusion
all on my focus, now my focus is gone
Or not so much gone as latched upon
materials and fancy forms
leaving my senses senseless— trapped behind fences and walls
5 foot 6 inches tall
blonde hair, blue eyes— how can this not be God?
But right on cue, He says “You’re mistaken, my friend”

(Pre-Chorus 2)
Left making excuses for this misused heart again
peace came and then it went

(Bridge)
I got a mind full of knowledge, undisputed facts, and thought
oh no but still no closer to knowing God

(Chorus 3)
I am Jesus in denial
I am silence consumed by sound
I am wisdom within without anyone who will hear
I am refugee in a foreign land
I am a symbol I don’t understand
I am two or three footsteps from turning around
I am wild horses stuck in a cage
I am Now but I’m always late
I am the product of One I can’t conceive
I am perfection destined to fail
I am joy on the brink of despair
I am a shadow unaware that its source is the sun
always in hiding, or else on the run
