lyrics

May I shed this skin that I have grown
That has become
That does envelope my whole
Though I did fold
Myself within myself.
May I feel lighter, and in turn less heavy
I'd like to sing about laughter and light
I'd like to sing about hope
Though everything I am, now
Is inside this envelope.

May I bathe, this child that I have grown
That my body and mind have both known
And may my grave
Be not made of stone
So that my body
May sink alone.
May I feel lighter, and in turn less here.

May I fold, my mind upon itself
And rinse my body, of all its health.
May I drown
And may you swim
And may we finally bathe
In these cold waters we were born in.
