Penniless and tired, let your hair grow long
I was looking at you there and your face looked wrong
Memory is an echo silent song
I didn't understand

Image and a light as the morning nears
you don't say a single word of your last two years
Well you will be, you'll reach the frontier
I didn't understand, oh

See your wringing hands and a silver knife
Twenty dollars in your hand that you hold so tight
All the evidence of your vegan lie
My brother you were born
