I Am My Own Name (Youth Remix)

No thin pixie
White and drawn
No shaded shadow
No monk head shorn
No jaded shock star
Or blackened thorn
No heathen cynic
No lover scorned

A seeking searcher
A shifting shape
A spirit lifter
Where the sea doth break
I fought the misers
Pawn to king
Where death drew sick
I call out the ring
Move and shimmer
In the magical dust
Swing the lanterns of the Sacred

I am my own
I am my own name
I am my own
I am my own

I fought the misers
Pawn to king
Where death drew sick
Call out The Ring
Move shimmer in the magical dust
Swing the lanterns at the sacred Musk

I’m no pixie, nor white and drawn
No shaded shadow
No monk head shorn
No jaded shock star
No blackened thorn
No…
Lover scorned
Seeking searcher
Shifting shape, oh!
I am…

I am my own
I am my own
I am my own
