Barefoot In My Brain

Songs of Ascension : Track 4

(And you feed me: And you feed me)

Going barefoot in my brain
Skinny dipping in my soul
No invitation
No reservation
I and I must be alone
I and I must be alone

I'm gonna smash
The mirror
Walk into the desert
Talk to all the fools in my mind
Let 'em out
Unwind
It's been a long long day
For seven, hungry years

 

Going barefoot in my brain

 

But what's this on my back
Friend or foe, yeah I know you'll attack
Blind fool, must I spend every day in school
My heart is open
My heart is closed
I am devoted
To feed my mind
Or those…damn carrion birds
Those, damn carrion birds
Those Damn Carrion Birds

 

(CHR)

 

I got
40 feet in my shoes
No joke, 'cos I
Can't move
Won't let you step on me
I smash the mirror
I slam the door

 

(And you feed me: And you feed me)

And you feed me: And you feed me
And you feed me: Then you leave me

 

Going barefoot in my brain
Skinny dipping
In my soul
