When you were a boy you stuck a thumb inside the light
Inside the light, morning bottle warm
Holy compass ready, you would run into the wild
Into the wild, gathered in its arms
In its arms, in its arms

When you're in the city you're a tangled native tongue
Another tongue eating fear for free
Know the wild that wants you, know you're not another pillow
On a gun drifting off to sleep
And come home, and come home

Feel your own bones say
"Heal yourself, yourself"
Hear your own heart moan
"Love yourself, yourself"

When you were a girl salt was beading down your back
And all the braves were tangled in your hair
Candy for your lips and for your love
All you were given was a bruise
Falling down the stairs

When you're in the city and it's talking to itself
Stealing what you sing
Know the wild that wants you when the sun is underground
And park police are laughing off your leaves

Feel your own bones say
"Heal yourself, yourself"
Hear your own heart moan
"Love yourself, yourself
And come home, and come home
And come home, and come home"
