I bet you're wondering if you woke up today
just to learn why the caged bird sings
I bet you're wondering if the goddesses
are all crazy, or just keeping it interesting
situated slightly outside society
at odds with its odd offerings
I bet you're teetering on the edge of sobriety
just to alleviate a few things

Like the fear that you're standing here
cuz you want to be liked
you know you need your instrument
but does your instrument need to be miked ?

You keep imagining
that pretty soon you will just disappear
and thinking that one thing
is what saves you from your fear of being here
here for now
here for now

I bet you're looking for the little red x
next to the red arrow and the words "you are here"
I bet you're hoping that your heart
will send up the white flag this time
or some sign that the coast is clear
yeah the moment when your heart jumps
it's all that's happening
and once again its like the first time you've felt that shock
yeah the moment when your heart jumps
it's all that's happening
and I was right behind the door when you knocked

Thinking maybe I'm just standing here
cuz I want to be liked
yeah I know I need my instrument
but does my instrument need to be miked ?

I keep imagining
that pretty soon I will just disappear
and thinking that one thing
is what saves me from my fear of being here
here for now
I'm here for now.
I'm here for now.
