lyrics

I doubt that I have the strength
to be no one at all
to melt into the ground
to be so small

And what have I to leave behind
or to save
but an old pair of shoes
or dead hair in the drain
so wash me away

I know it's hard to be brave
and it's not my fault that I was raised this way
I was told I had a say
over the land over sea
and then He said to me
that you're my right hand man

and there's so much that I know

or maybe I don't.
I'm just a baby in the cold.

And what have I to leave behind or save?

They say the quickest way to heaven
Is through fame.
So what do I do
To get them praising my name?
For even if they don’t,
At the end of the day,
The roots will rise up from the clay
The earth will take my body in the same way

I’ll melt into the ground.
I’ll be no one at all.
