lyrics

Dolphin

Dolphin
Will you leap out from the ocean?
I'm feeling
Things that tell me that I'm home.

Not your kind of home
'Cos I belong in clever little boxes
Lined in rows of home.
I find my peace in clever little structures
Gliding through the waves

I see these happenings unfolding
Folding
Weaving in and
Out here on the ocean
I might drown in

What's this human I've become?
When in time did I find myself
In clever little boxes
Stacked and sterile?

What's this person I've become?
Do you see reflected in these clever little structures
Shades of me?

I see these stories drifting
Merging with the others, drifting
Out here on the ocean
Take me home

Skim along the surface now
Glimmer wet and merry now
Slim and lithe and so alive
Now take me home.

Dip your dorsal, spin around
Vagabond, ensnare me now
Valentine of history
Look how we've grown.

Dolphin
Won't you leap out from the ocean?
