lyrics

NATIVES:

sacred fruit in the branches above
taste and know the thoughts of gods
we inherit what the ground will yield
our common language
the withered trees of paradise

coral feathered,
delicate red
the blood we share
our hearts tethered
with a strand of thread
to each other life we’ve met

my fingers traced the braille
of sown fields
to find what was buried inside
both hands came back with earth
our gift
our birth

and I was blind
until it's clay covered both my eyes
and now i see we share a light

coral feathered,
delicate red
the blood we share
our hearts tethered
with a strand of thread
to each other life we’ve met

i may never know
why we dream in imagined colors
i may never know
who we are to each other
but I think I may find
that we awake after our lives
to learn that the divine

was a light that clung to our insides
