Oh but all this to learn and your hair's so pretty

I'll say it now
And girl you shake it right
We will free love to the beats of science
I will bounce you on the lap of silence
But girl you shake it right
Betraying all the symptoms
And erring on the side of caution
And wait to watch the fire
We tremble like anyones children
We marshal in the days of longing

Not even jail
To your end
Give some meanings to the means
Remember take hold of your time here
Such a cautious display
I'm subtle like a lion's cage
It travels south with disuse
When personality is scar tissue

Cause I want it now
Oh I'll say it now
Say it now
I'll say it now
I'll say it now
If things come alive
Either physical or otherwise
I promise to commit no acts of violence
If things come alive
Yeah, I will start painting houses
I'll subtract pain by ounces
If things come alive
I'll lay down in houses
I'll lay down my glasses
Can't you feel all the warmth of my sincerity
You make motion when you cry
You're making peoples lives feel less private
Don't take time away
You make motion when you cry
We all hold hands
Can we all hold hands
When we make new friends

I pretend like no one else
To try to control myself
I'm subtle like a lion's cage
Such a cautious display
Remember take hold of your time here
Give some meanings to the means
To your end
Not even jail
