My ghost like to travel so deep into your space

I had the misfortune this week to be stuck driving my husband's land whale of a truck. My car needed a few repairs. All was not lost... he left Peter Gabriel in the disc player! I do like the man's taste in music... this one has been playing in my head... love it!

folded in your fleshy purse
i am floating once again
while the muted sounds are pumping rhythm
all the walls close in on me
pressure's building wave on wave
'til the water breaks - and outside i go, oh

one dot, that's on or off, defines what is and what is not, one dot
two dot, a pair of eyes, a voice, a touch, complete surprise, two dot

growing up, growing up,
looking for a place to live
growing up, growing up
looking for a place to live
growing up, growing up,
looking for a place to live

my ghost like to travel so far in the unknown
my ghost like to travel so deep into your space

three dot, a trinity, a way to map the universe, three dot
four dot, is what will make a square, a bed to build on, it's all there, four dot

my ghost like to travel so far in the unknown
my ghost like to travel so deep into your space

all the slow clouds pass us by
make the Empire State look high
as you take me in your sea-stained sweetness
it spills, it tingles and it stings
all the pleasure that it brings
'til the door has let the outside inside here

well on the floor there's a long wooden table
on the table there's an open book
on the page there's a detailed drawing
and on the drawing is the name i took

my ghost like to travel so far in the unknown
my ghost like to travel so deep into your space

growing up, growing up,
looking for a place to live
growing up, growing up
looking for a place to live
growing up, growing up,
looking for a place to live

my ghost like to travel so far in the unknown
my ghost like to travel so deep into your space

the breathing stops, i don't know when
in transition once again
such a struggle getting through these changes
and it all seems so absurd
to be flying like a bird
when i do not feel I've really landed here

    The disc I was listening to was a compilation disc... Hits. It's a two-disc collection. One disc is called "Hit"... the other is called "Miss"... funny, Mr. Gabriel, funny. "Growing Up" is on the disc entitled "Hit"... I don't recall "Growing Up" as a hit but... whatever... the whole collection is pretty awesome. I have my car back... now my husband can stop saying I don't have enough testosterone to drive his truck properly... I drove the truck just fine thank you... and he should be grateful that I don't have that much testosterone... really. lol.
