You have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my thorns now

And I feel them sprouting
They'll grow right through if I don't watch them
They'll grow right through even if I watch them
And a sunset couldn't save me now

These baobabs, and baobabs, and baobabs some more
But you can't out weight fate
Now you have tamed me
Now you must take me, ta-ta-take

And I wouldn't raise my child inside the city anyway
They grow up too savvy and they grow up too fast
And they know about buying shit and they know about sex
And they know about investment banking and also about brokerage burns

And they know about the numbers and they know about the words
And they know about the bottom lines and also about stones
And they know about careers and about the real deals
And they all grow up and become people's people with people skills

But you have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my thorns now

And you have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my thorns
