you backed out on the cause

i can see when your dreaming
underneath your skin
it isn’t like you ever are
who you’ve ever been

you backed out on the cause
because the cause wasn’t the cure
you said there’s no reason in religion
and no point in being pure

but you’re not ready to sell it all
either
not without being sure

you said there is no movement
because a movement
doesn’t go anywhere
you said you have something
too big
too big for you to share

but in the distance
there’s a skyline
beautiful as anything can be
and there’s animals inside us
who are
itching to be free
