Why can't we speak another language
One we all agree on
When men look outside, they see houses
Instead of the fields they grew from
We are constantly uprooted from them
Making us tiresome (and fearful)
Can you get up right now
Endeavor to free fall?

You can fall if you want to!
It's just a matter of how far
You've treasured our hometown,
But you've forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you until your mind's been found,
And it has been found wondering around
