over the canopy

lyrics

over the canopy
worlds out beyond our reach
out beyond the borderline
out beyond the hierarchy

you catch a glimmer, there--
through the tears in a fabric wall
you can feel a trembling
in your heart of hearts you see it

you see it
you see it
it cleaves
and you see it
you see it

in this hegemony
there is neither peace nor war
only complicity
only a violent metaphor

say who you are to me!
tell me what you're after!
I can tell an enemy
they don't know what they're fighting for

because it's o'er the canopy
and it's under our skin
it is among us and within

over the canopy
worlds out beyond our reach
out beyond the borderline
out beyond the hierarchy
