lyrics

“Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature 
and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.”
 —François-Auguste-René Rodin


yes i bit the bait
but it was only
that it’s beyond me
that larger beings would hide a hook
in tasty trickery
i heard there is a fine line
between love and hate
on which we’re pulled and yanked
and if this is the natural order of things
why does it feel unnaturally mean
?

you said that it seems
i’m a perpetual motion machine
but moon scoops and empties
spring tides of energy
can you help me learn
to release and honor a memory
nothing i love is still
or truly belongs to me
and if I saw my whole life in a reel
would i feel the need
for repeat scenes like snippets of melody?

yes you tamed the lion
yes you tamed the lion
and though my claws and teeth are shining
i don’t like violence
i like the sloshing stream
and humming bees in sunbeams
yes you tamed the lion
yes you tamed the lion
without a cage or binding
with a mirror
i saw much clearer
now i know
we’re not each other’s keepers
not each other’s betters
we’re just sharers
in melody
