lyrics

I own perceptions handed down
through haughty, hardened palms
tainted by subjectivity
and force-fed to the young
To this very day, I'm still peeling
the skin off of the fruit they bore
to tap the meat, the seeds, the core
- the world the way it was before

When the skin's giving away answers
to questions I'd not yet asked,
when I know to anticipate
everything before its time,
and when my patchwork thoughts
form beliefs so scattershot,
can I claim that these beliefs I hold
were ever, for a moment, mine?
