lyrics

Rewrite
My mind is in a rage, a sort of self forged cage
That’s looking for a useful message
I’m longing for touch, longing to be held
Wanting it so much, trying to meld
My realities together
To stay light as a feather on my feet
To stay in the beat
And not compete when it’s not necessary
I throw down the gauntlet at the feet of my attachment and
Write it like a sonnet that works like bullet
And blows my shit away
Knowing it will really pay to say out loud...


Hey ah ah It's my way to play and
Hey ah I strive to thrive and
Hey ah ah living wide alive
This lovely life

Ditch past junk, tap into the funky baseline
Whose heart beats just like mine
As the words pour through
I see me in you
And own what’s mine
So we can define the meaning of real love

And leave behind all this finger pointing
Head anointing self appointing hypocrisy
And embrace the truth, this body like a sleuth
Holds secrets to hope, a million ways to cope
And find the forward movement, a divine groove sent
To give us a shot at living true beauty
Shit, it’s our duty to strive...

It’s just a matter of time till I realign
Break out of my prison, step into the rhythm
Surrender to float on the musical notes
And dote on the gods and goddesses of music
And use it to spread this passion
To spread self reflection
On the wings of a my affection
Takes us spiraling above up into the stars
To reclaim the sanity that’s ours and
Stream it back to the earth as we give birth
To a whole new paradigm

Why die for a cause if I can live my life to rewrite my own laws?
‘Cause every time I move from craving to grasping
I dig myself a grave that I can’t last in
Gotta learn to practice what I preach
So I can gain the self respect to teach
And serve this world in both word and deed
By learning what it is I need to thrive
Wide alive...
