I’m in a place where I don’t belong
If you take a snake from Africa and bring it to Alaska, it is lost
If a bird flies north for the winter instead of South, it is lost
A man who drinks when he is hungry, is lost
You may know your way, but you are still lost
Everyone needs a guide in one way or another
I can’t find myself in this place of sovereignty
Lost between fantasy and reality
Lost between origin and destination
Lost between life and death
What can we do?
Who can I go to?
What can I call mine?
Where do I go from here?
