Earthbound

 

Oh ground below please let me go

Up into the atmosphere to fly and flow

Why do my feet stay stuck to your skin?

If I should die you pull be back within

From the comfort of your womb I was sent

To go forwards to the light was your intent

You hold and support this body I borrow

Each step carries me into my tomorrow

As I rest my head you lay me to sleep

Even my tears you absorb as I weep

I cannot break the contact for if I do

Gravity throws me right back to you

Earthbound to sensate around a circle of time

Handed down clock its tintinnabulation your rhyme

Try as I may leaping I cannot take flight

Form me weightless throw my molecules at light

Raise me up from my pedestrian tether

Out into the cosmos forever and ever

For the earth should be my bow, me the arrow to shoot

Freeing me from this entanglement of my mortal earthly root
