Almost Human

Almost Human
By Kimonos
Words and Lyrics by Kimonos (Shutoku Mukai and Leo Imai)

The walk back home begins when
you’re far away off course
It doesn’t seem to matter where you’ve been
when you’ve got remorse

But every move you make and
especially all you’ve faked
It’s all burnt by the sun onto your back
You touch softly yet entangled in contract

And you say you’re almost human
But that’s too easy
That’s too easy to say
To say

A bird is free, they say, and
the world’s just one more cage
The sage just smiles and stares all the time at
the monster’s rage

It’s carbon, pure and simple
and droplets that make ripples
A long and dark December
But hold onto you head… temper, temper

And you say you’re almost human
But that’s too easy
That’s too easy to say
To say
