On from here walkin dreams awake
I think not i think not
The sky comes king blown in every direction
And of no country
I am straw

It is no mystery
I know my way from here

Iron sharpens iron
Crooked wooden and peacock black
I have your feathers
Slung across my back
I'm not the only one
To help you down the hill
My blue knuckles do as they will

It is no mystery
I know my way from here
It is no mystery
I know my way from here

One as precious as the other
They go with me
Today i am not a false conscience
A tyrant
Angels line my pockets dear
I walk a hutterite mile
Look at me this once
Put an eye to my step
Look and furrow
Its only misery it's only ankle deep

It is no mystery
I know my way from here
It is no mystery
I know my way from here

    This is more of a direct reference to jakob hutter's journey after his anabaptist community ("hutterites"), which had been thriving, was kicked out of the country or moravia. Hutter went back with some of the scattering community to tyrol, crossing the alps, in a cold perilous journey in itself. It is from tyrol he had left years before (to monrovia) because of persecution, and he knew there would be persecution there (and there was; hutter and 360 of his community were tortured and executed).
