where are my sisters?
where are my brothers?
where is my family
who takes care of each other?

...

you gotta complete the circuit
alone there's just no knowing
yeah energy is destructive unless it is flowing
in the connection lies the spark
in the connection lies the art
you gotta be up in someone's countenance
conversing with their heart

you gotta complete the circuit
not just with human beings
with the sky above you
with the earth beneath your feet
when you complete the circuit
with everything that lives
borders get blurry
and the rest is adjectives
