in hiding lyrics – genesis

pick me up
put me down
push me in
turn me round
switch me on
let me go
i have a mind of my own

in hiding
far from the city of night
and the factories of truth
i stand upon the mountain
a million miles from my home
and the faces of fear
i have freedom to think

in hiding
i may take off my clothes
that i wear on my face
i float upon a river
a million miles from the plains
that are piercing the clouds
i am lost in the beauty
in hiding

pick me up
put me down
push me in
turn me round
switch me on
let me go
i have a mind of my own

in hiding
i lie silent at last
i am free from my past
i walk among the tall trees
this is beauty i know
i am in love with it all
i have the freedom to love
in hiding

pick me up
put me down
push me in
turn me round
switch me on
let me go
i have a mind of my own

in hiding
i may take off my clothes
that i wear on my face
i float upon a river
a million miles from the plains
that are piercing the clouds
i am lost in the beauty
in hiding
