ALANIS MORISSETTE lyrics : "Citizen Of The Planet"

I start up in the north
I grow from a special seed
I sprinkle it with sensibility

From French and Hungarian snow
I linger in the sprouting
Until my engine's full


Then I move across the sea
To European bliss

To language of poets
As I cut the cord of home
I kiss my mother's mother

Look to the horizon

Wide eyed, new ground

Humbled by my new surroundings

I am a citizen of the planet

My president is Kwan Yin
My frontier is on an airplane
My prisons, homes for rehabilitating


Then I fly back to my rest
I fly back with my nuclear

But everything is different
So I wait
My yearn for home is broadened

Patriotism expanded
By callings from beyond


So I pack my things
Nothing precious
All things sacred


I am a citizen of the planet
My laws are all of attraction

My punishments are consequences
Separating from source the original sin


I am a citizen of the planet
Democracy's kids are sovereign
Where the teachers are the sages

And pedestals filled with every parent

And so the next few years are blurry

The next decade's a flurry
Of smells and tastes unknown
Threads sewn straight through this fabric

Through fields of every color
One culture to another


And I come alive
And I get giddy
And I am taken and globally naturalized


I am a citizen of the planet
From simple roots through high vision

I am guarded by the angels
And my body guides the direction I go in


I am a citizen of the planet
My favorite pastime edge stretching
Besotten with human condition

These ideals are born from my deepest within
