Preambulatory Circuitous Route (2008)

      Are you learning to be?
      Are you learning to be?
      Are you learning from him
      Or her? Or she?
      Or me?
      Are you learning to be?
      Are you learning to be?
      Are you learning to see?
      Are you learning
      to be?
      Are you learning to be?

      Exactly.
      Exactly who you are
      Exactly who you are
      Are you learning to be
      Are you learning to be
      Exactly who you are
      Exactly who you are
      Are you learning to be?
      Exactly who you are

      Exactly who you are
      In the beginning
      Into this and that
      Into this?

      Are you learning to be?
      Are you discerning
      Are you learning to be?
      Exactly who you are
      Into this and that?

      Are you learning to be?
      Exactly who you are
      Into this and that?
      Are you learning to be?
      Exactly who you are
      In this
      And that art?
      In this art

      Are you learning to be?
      Exactly who you are
      In this art?

      So much cloth
      So much cloth
      Into this and that art
      So much cloth

      Sometimes I'm sick of it
      Sick of it
      Sometimes so sick of it

      Sick of it all
      Sick of it all
      Thank you very much

      Sick of it
      Sick of it all
      Thank you very much

      Thank you
      Sick of it all
      Sick of it all
      Thank you very much

      Sick of it all
