Toyah – I Am lyrics

My fingers are grass
My tongue the asp
My town a burial mound

My eyes are jewels
My ears hear fools
And I put them down

My feet are wings
My body sings
Without a sound

Eyes of blind ignorance
See a world of despair
Mountains of man
Hide cities too deep
Cool dark graves where bodies creep

My nose is sharp
It cuts the glass
And then I escape

My back is flat
Off the beaten track
Am a landscape

My body and spine
They intertwine
I am a raging snake

I am at peace
The feeling's neat
Then suddenly I awake

Eyes of blind ignorance
See a world of despair
Mountains of man
Hide cities too deep
Cool dark graves where bodies creep

I am a waterfall
I come tumbling
(Tumbling)
Tumbling
(Tumbling)
Down into infinity
Down in journey to the sea
Down, I rain on leaves and trees
On beggars and thieves
I am, I am, I am, I am

I stand at my window
Wind and moonlight
Fire my hair

I touch the glass
It can't be seen
But it's always there

I'm told I'm free
And I believe
Four walls imprison me

Eyes of blind ignorance
See a world of despair
Mountains of man
Hide cities too deep
Cool dark graves where bodies creep

My fingers are numb
My tongue is blunt
I am only me

My eyes are shallow
My ears hollow
I am only me

My feet are still
I'm unfulfilled
I am only me

My head's a bed
It feels like lead
My mind is totally free

I must sleep
(I)
I must sleep
(Am)
I must sleep
(A waterfall)
I must sleep
I must sleep
(I)
I must sleep
(Am)
I must sleep
(A waterfall)
Sleep, sleep
Sleep, sleep
