Heal

From this room to that school
Avenue B down to Avenue U
To Domino Sugar
Into deeper Brooklyn

Past the bellys sat in Deli’s
Japanese Barbers
And all those original Rays
Delicious Pizza Parlours

Out across the country
To the ocean
Above the golden sand
The green or barren lands

Leave yourself
And you will heal
Meet us out
Beyond the walls and wheels
Life is who you are
Not vice versa, not vice versa

Feel your feet upon the ground
The space that you are in
Where you are standing
The air upon your skin

Past the gardens in the sky
Past the jets that fly up high
With all those souls inside
Eating carbs and drinking wine

Fly above the streets
Across the city
The rivers and the lakes
The mountains and the valleys

Leave yourself
And you will heal
Meet us out
Beyond the walls and wheels
Life is who you are
Not vice versa, not vice versa
