A
this is the zoo
that i believe in
this is the smoke
i'm always breathin
this is the way
i share my breakfast
this is the way
i serve my sentence


i know i know
             D
i should lay low
              A
i should stand tall

A
this is the beard
i'm always growin
i know they're here
i see them floating
her empress beads
they float so holy
their beards are here
they gently hold me

A
well who knows who knows
                D
yeah i may come home
          A
yeah i may return

A
this is the way
i'm always leaving
this is the soft 
voice of the evening
this is the way 
i hear my father
these are the flames
that drown the water

A
well i know i know
              D
i could stand tall
            A
i could lay low

A
this is the sound
that swims inside me
that circle sound
is what surrounds me
this is the land
that grows around me
and these are the hands
that come in handy

well we've known we've known
          D
we have a choice
         A
we chose rejoice.
