I Know the Way

I pull up the fences
I lift up the waves
I send my curses out on the wind
I know the way
I know the way
I am not wrong
I want what I take
I know the way

I run to where the ghosts go to sing
I get no closer than the stars are to me
I can give up whenever I want
I do it on purpose
My blood is so hot
I know the way

I can bear it
I don’t mind it
when the stars are wrong

we can land it
handstand it
when the stars are wrong

You start your crying
It’s better with two
A snake on your shoe
I’m sorry for you
I’m sorry for me, but I can’t believe
the itch on your leg is not destiny
I know the way

I am not gone
I am not here
I am the sound of a crowd as it cheers
The wind that breaks the windows came from my hair
My green is the reason it rains half the year
Curses grow blessings when I cross the ground
What you thought impossible lives in the sound
of time cracking in two, pink bending to blue
The ocean thanks me for the waves that I threw
The shadow of a dog is a home good enough
When I turn to diamonds I’ll crawl in the rough
I build what I can out of leftover stuff
My body and prayers is what makes it all up
A giant came crushing
She stepped on my place
I ran her like buffalo and I won the chase
I know the way

I can bear it
I don’t mind it
when the stars are wrong

we can land it
handstand it
when the stars are wrong
