Tumbleweed, your inner spirit is a peace sign to me
Life is full of little tricks and we can always pick up sticks
And build again, that's what we do

Harmony, the way we hold on when we tumble though the night
Life is full of strange delights, in the darkness we find lights
To make our way, back home again

Tumbleweed, I'm baring my soul to you
Tumbleweed, it's all that I've got that's true

Bite me now, with your confusion, your happiness and delight
It will only hurt a moment, then it's gone and you can see
There's nothing left, to leave a mark

Animal, care for your kind, in the way you always do
When the flower moon is shining, it's eclipse and your lips smiling
Comfort me and I comfort you

Tumbleweed, your inner spirit is a peace sign to me
