Rusty barbed wire all tangled inside, matted balls of oil and leaves 'round her heart
she's moving slow to the river she's going to feel that water running by
she's singing low with the earth through her toes and the threads of sun in her eyes

fihin' for reasons why

This ball of dirt and sky, the bed of nails on which we lie,
the mysteries of time the sorrow that is yours and mine
no matter how we try, there are scars we cannot hide
freedom comes in time, it's written in the wind

Rusty barbed wire, all twisted and dry
matted balls of iron and sage line her heart
she's built her boat carved with the blade of hope
no more illusions in tow
as she ripens inside with her hands to the sky
only haunted by the things she don't know

fishin' for reasons why
