lyrics

Wild Poppies

Riding through these hills
They're holy as we will

This is a desert---this is a jungle
The wildflower, she waves,
to the cameras, to the high wall
to the watchtower, so grave

Four wild poppies by the wall
Under spirals of wires barbed
Enough to lift and break my heart

They remind me of what I know
Through my body, their magic flows

"I am a lover, I am a fractal,"
The wildflower, she says
To the cameras, to the high wall
To the watchtower so grave

Four wild poppies by the wall
I look real close and I hear their call
Yeah, it lifts me and frees my soul
Four wild poppies by the wall

I'm thinking of another time
I'm thinking of another life
I'm thinking of another way
I'm thinking of another page
