so one by one i let them go 
all the things that i've ever known 
the anchors fall out of my head 
i can't look back at what i've shed

the tears are pouring from my eyes 
those little weights i try to cry 
to shake the earth and leave behind 
i see things like i've never seen 
become someone i've never been

by now i've dropped so many things 
it's like i've grown a pair of wings 
my mind supine, the kiss of sky 
so fresh, so close, it seems that i can fly

where is the ox that left and got away 
i flew away from all the pain of stress and tears 
tear the sun and moon and split the sky 
into the sky the light the peace of mind to find 
find the beast and set a golden yoke
