Paper sky and burnt orange trees
The prickle of the air makes my nose freeze
Cinderella hears her call
When my love's in San Francisco my slipper falls

And I get the urge for holding something
I'm a vessel of desire and I'm overflowing

recently I've thought about
the challenges of dropping out
of blazing my own trail through social woods
of cutting through the social "shoulds"

And I didn't know my cage until I ran
'til I collied with the greater plan

And I get the urge for knowing something
I'm a vessel of desire and I'm overflowin

Why is it that conformity
has her fingernails so deep in me?
Why should living be a sacrifice
With all I value under her knife?

and I get the urge for proving something
and I get the urge or choosing something
yes I get the urge for loving something
I'm a vessel of desire and I'm overflowing...
