For my father.


draft me a pony you know that I'll ride
design me a forest oh so black inside
craft me a future with your bare hands
grant me a breath that I might freely create as you live to
bound not by the rules of man (x2)

paint me a solitary picture of my past
paint me another that'll show me the path
draw me up a roll top desk with spaces to hide
items that inspire me reflecting on times that you longed to
sound off on the life at your hands (x2)

Recite for me from memory the language of the natives with whom you lived
Expound upon the significance of their blood in mine
and the traditions that'll never be passed on to their kids

oh tell me of the things you've seen and all the things you expect I'll be
And all these things are quite naturally
found not in the records of man (x2)

oh I'll ride that pony deep into the heart
of that bamboo forest of your art
Enlightened by the beams of sun and truth
As I kneel here amongst the shoots
I am encompassed in full

You've built me up oh you don't know the influence of your whole soul and the serenity of your role before my face
All the chaos that man might make you bring to order and give hope place
so that each mistake may be
drowned out by the peace of this land (x2)

verse 1

bound not by the rules of man~
