Wish I Stayed Lyrics

Why can't we speak another language
One we all agree on?
Why when men look outside, they see houses
Instead of the fields they grew from?

We are constantly uprooted from them
Making us tiresome and fearful
Can you get up right now
Endeavor to free fall?

'Cause you can fall if you want to
It's just a matter of how far
You've treasured our hometown
You've forgotten where you are

And it will stay with you
Till your mind's been found
And it has been found wandering around

With that skipping rope, the trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope

It's just the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed

Patterns all arranged in my background
Pillars and posts keeping this country on form
Letters were all sent with no addresses
So that people can't discover
That we're always under cover

Why do I always draw triangles
Instead of words this paper deserves?
'Cause you see, I don't own my clothes but I own my mind
And it's not what you've lost but it's what you find

With that skipping rope, the trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope

It's the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed

'Cause you can fall if you want to
It's just a matter of how far
You've treasured our hometown
You've forgotten where you are

And it will stay with you
Till your mind's been found
And it has been found wandering around

With that skipping rope, the trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope

It's just the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed, I wish I stayed
