It is a very different thing
To leave home and kiss it goodbye
To wear down paths around the world
And know your back is to a radius
And a tug on the string will center you home.
It is a very different thing than
To leave home carried away like a prize
A trophy of war, a pilgrimage sacrifice
And know your back is to a fire
And if you look back, you’ll be turned to salt.
