lyrics

I am shaped from northern wind
snow's the marrow in my bones
and though I ride the southern currents
December always pulls me home

As a kid I climbed calligraphy trees
And I let them write all over me
In scars and scabs and hairline fractures
I wear them still like beauty queen sashes

Like I am still a child
playing in the park
trading secrets with my first crush like trading cards
I am still a child
knee deep in a freezing lake
no matter the path I choose to take
some part of me stays

I've been frozen, I've been scalded
I've been temperate skies of june
but brisk, crisp mornings always brought me
back to a hometown icy blue

Like I am still a child
picking flowers for my mom
but I dropped them when i slipped and fell
so I cried when I got home
I am still a child
waist deep in a freezing lake
no matter the path I choose to take
some part of me stays

I see the creatures stare me down
from cubicles with sleek grey walls
and I scream I am not one of you
but I could be soon

I am still a child
Over my head in the lake
