Lyrics

Wishing one could fall beyond the gaze of mankind
Round and round she goes it be a trap of the mind
Orbiting the earth above the clouds, out of my hands
For I myself feel alien to the wicked ways of humans

Respect my body, you expect
What other purpose could I serve?
They teach us words and looks can kill
And we get what we deserve
Weary with this weight, you snap
Oh sister, watch your back
For I myself a woman, I know too well the beaten path

We tried to keep her, mend and teach her
Secrets far and few
But she got lost amid the crossfire and burnt

Now who might that be rising from the depths of your despair?
Gilded eyes, tucked behind her ear, vermillion hair
I know not who she is, her face is different, unsure
For I myself am just a man I know not the ways of her

Now who might that be rising from the depths of your despair?
Reflected back to you, it be thine own vision fair
The fear of unfamiliar eyes, take nothing from strange hands
For I myself am just a child, I know not the face of man

The book of knowledge gathers dust, forever sitting on the shelf
For you my friend are just a man who knows nothing of himself
