I am untethered, my feathers unfettered
I’m free to move freely

The mournings behind me
The day is still breaking
When will I stop shaking and sweating like Jesus when he knew his future who, taking his thorns off for his profile picture, pretends that he’s had no trouble whatsoever. And puts on a smile just to keep it together. A neat little package to give to whoever, a new Judas who will promise him forever…

Newly unanchored I aim at the ocean go on with my plan
To master and conquer the thinking uncharted or known like the back of my hand
To buy or not buy what the street vendor’s selling
What tomorrow brings there’s no way of telling today

I am unsaddled and I saddled no one not even my man
Though my job still sucks I wish I was touring why do I even own a van?

Is it parked on the Thursday or the Monday spot?
Does it even matter three weeks now haven’t been caught.

I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
