I would uncage you my little bird And watch you soar around the shining skies And I would love you my little bird And we'd explore the planet's mysteries

Following signs All in good time The road unwinds Keep following signs The road unwinds Aligns The road, what’s on down the road? You hope for something more Cause you’re crawling up the walls Get better Annual Others by the wayside fall Giving up the ghost an’ all Never came the call A flounder then a fall No sense to be found In this spectral hinterland Just dreams of sleep and wakes of sound I took stock I walked ten gorgeous blocks To count every good thing I’ve got In my mind’s screenplay I sail away Shed a few skins today Faced my unfathomable fate I’m just a shadow on a wall A shimmer then nothing at all On this ship of fools we’re bound To a spectral hinterland With dreams of sleep and wakes of sound Following signs Keep following signs

It's a slippery slope I can't tell you not to go But I can warn you that You might not come back From the word go I've tried to soften the blow But it's a hard hammer that falls Upon your African soul You're the one and only man Understand You're the one and only man You belong to no one You're nobody's son You belong to no one People don't see This hard hammer that beats My only advice Don't make the same mistake twice A single entity You see The one and only You belong to no one You're nobody's son You belong to no one The highs are high The lows are low You feel the cold Take the blows You'll find no comfort here
