lyrics

Yes, yes I accept
The future has been fenced
But I'm free on this property for at least today

Youth runs around the yard
Like feverish dogs that guard
Against unseen threats but love is the lock on the gate of this age

I like my feet better than my fate

A baby born in prison
Inherits a kingdom
When isolation is your natural condition you learn to love your cellmate

It's tiring to stand on your own
And seats of judgement are available in waiting rooms
But I return the embraces of my shoelaces and prepare for a brief escape

I like feet better than my fate

The journey has now begun
A search party is out looking for the setting sun
But the bridges were lovely and they all fell for me so behind I had to stay

I like my feet better than my fate
