we begin…

this is where we begin

dark on the inside
this is where we begin
lights on the inside
this is where we begin
dust on the windows
too thick to see out

we cry when we’re hungry
this is where we begin
we cry when we’re thirsty
this is where we begin
we talk when we’re ready
when we’re ready

one
one in one million
a million to many
a million to one
just because
we think we’re ready
we push the buttons
see what we’ve become

I look at the sun now
this is where we begin
doves at my window
this is where we begin
pain in my left side
and the time moves on

talk like a lover
sing like a mother
dust on the windows
comes off

one
one in one million
a million to many
a million to one
just because
we think we’re ready
we push the buttons
see what we’ve become

lights on the outside
this is where we begin
light from the inside
this is where we begin
dust in the corners
but now we can see out

cry when we’re hurt
laugh when we’re happy
talk when we’re ready
when we’re ready
