Body Memory Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
First snow of Winter
I'm walking hills and valleys
Adore this mystical fog!
This fucking mist!
These cliffs are just showing off
Verse 2
Then the body memory kicks in
I mime my whole mountains
The moss that I'm made of
I redeem myself
Verse 3
I've been wrestling my fate
Do I accept this ending?
Will I accept my death?
Or struggle claustrophobic?
Fought like a wolverine
With my destiny
Refuse to accept what was meant to be
Verse 4
Then the body memory kicks in, and I trust the unknown
Unfathomable imagination
Surrender to future
Verse 5
Oh, how to capture all this love
And find a pathway for it
Like threading an ocean through a needle
Ribbon through a keyhole
Can't fathom the grasp
I can't grasp the fathom
Verse 6
Then the body memory kicks in
My limbs and tongue take over
Like the ancestors before me
Show me the flow
Verse 7
My sexual DNA
X-rays of my Kama Sutras
Summons different bodies
Compares spines and buttocks
And back of necks
Verse 8
Then my body memory kicks in
It simply takes over
I redeem my body
Verse 9
I wasn't born urban
Toxic doesn't agree with me
A love lured me here
Into a stagnant state
My myths, my customs, ridiculed
Vacuum-packed molecules
Verse 10
Then my body memory kicks in
On this Brooklyn dance floor
Sweating with these rhythms
Rotate this matrix
Verse 11
I'm trapped in legal harness
Kafka-esque, farce like patriarchy
Avoid it to confront it
Verse 12
Then the body memory kicks in
My warrior awakens
My turn to defend
Urban didn't tame me
Verse 13
Then my body memory kicks in
Bosoms and embraces
Oral, anal entrances
Enjoy the satisfaction
If the other is growing
