As the sun comes up as the moon
These heavy notions creep around
Long ago I was brought into
A little lamb
Fearless was my middle name.
Lost my way
Expecting me to step
They claim to
I'll be clumsy instead
Say "keep within the boundaries if you want
Say "contradiction only makes it harder."
What I want to be?
These stilled constraints
Shred this sad masquerade
I'll trip, fall, pick myself up and
I'll be clumsy instead
If I have a bag of rocks to carry as I go
I don't care what I have to step over
Look me in the eye
Then celebrate the contradiction
Walk unafraid
Hold my love me or leave me

I'll be clumsy instead
