Rootless Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I'm a cloud drifting by
Dripping tears from the sky
I'm a snail without a shell
A leper with a golden bell

I've got nowhere to go
I'm a stray cat on the roam
Choking on a chicken bone
For a home sweet, no sweet home

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
For something, somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless, I'm rootless

Work your fingers to the bone
Building castles out of snow
I'm a nomad walking on
Humming to the same old song

Lower case society
Tighten no community
A kingdom without a king
With no sense of belonging

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
For something, somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless, I'm rootless

Running with my roots pulled up
So they could cut me free of love

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless, I'm rootless

Dragging my roots through the snow
For a home sweet and no sweet home
I've got nowhere to go
I'm rootless, I'm rootless
