I am bleeding from my feet
Leaving trails in the sand
So you can follow and find me here

Leaning off the end of a pier
Watching shadows of bull sharks feed

And I hush them at their reeling
I wanna hear the fishes screaming
I wanna know if my blood is a fluid as that
Which flows through the Gulf of Mexico

I am standing on some peak
Appalachian breathing fog
Am I no better than the masses below?

Kneeling to their Gods, singing hymns as old as them
Oh so frightened that it's never enough

And I hush them at their singing
I wanna hear the people screaming
I wanna know if my blood is as fluid as that which flows through the air in Carolina

Won't you let me off, yes I think I got a girl I need to see
I need to see
No one ever told me that there 'aint no doin' harm in being free
In being free
