Verse I:
A             E
Every cell is transforming.
     F#m                  D
And returning to original concepts to construct,
A                      E
And then I started to shapeshift,
        F#m                    D
And the animals within me grew tails and the talons
A                       E 
I hitched a ride on the back of a whale,
       F#m                      D
To the darkest of the ocean and ate off the bottom,
A                      E
And then I traveled dimensions,
       F#m                D
In the places I rode upon elephants and zebras

Well I dreamed of my future big time, yeah
F#m                        D        
What it would be like to always have clean water,
A                         E
And if you left the trees standing,
         F#m                     D
And they filtered the air and we breathed it in deeply
A                               E
Well I traveled across Native America,
          F#m                     D     
I saw the sickness taking form in all the small children
A                           E
Well if I could give you my people, yeah,
F#m                           D
Well a piece of my peace will be with you always,
A                      E

I never thought I needed medicine but I was spiritually dying,
  E
I needed some healing,
     D                          E
So I opened my mouth and took a dose of the music,
       D                                   E
Then I stopped and prayed for guidance now teach me to use it,
D                          E

I were blazing trails through uncertain territory,
A                  E
I take a toke and reflect with coyote,
        F#m                            D                         
and were dreaming up new ways to bring all the outcasts home,
A                      E
I take my place in the choir,
      F#m                  D

Written on my face,
