lyrics

And once we realize
We’re a dog chasing its tail
We come close to finding time
For better things to prevail

Sometimes you’ve just got to go
On and on without it
Instead of getting caught up
In getting caught up

Like a boy leading his kite
Yet trying to fight the wind
Venturing closer to trees
Because he thinks open space is a breeze

With intelligence comes assumptions
Of things being understood
The simple can be hard
The simple can be good

I’m getting sick of all these tangents
Of no conclusion and faceted diversion
I just wish I could slash through
This jungle of a mind’s perversion

There’s El Dorado and an aficionado
Of exploring I’ve come to be
Through the rain and under the canopy
There’s life and more to see

The dome above, this sky of mine
Piercing through the branches
Being south of snow and trees still
Protect me from the sun’s advances

An expedition in a direction
Feels good to go for a goal
On my way the way I’d like
Coming since and going so

And once I realize
To avoid “and once”
To do it when I can
And as I must

I’ll be moving forward
Against time’s steady hand
One thing’s for certain
Don’t worry if you’ll understand

The saturation of the foliage against my path
A silent treatment of silence’s wrath
Hear the drone of life in play
Unending for another day

I’ll keep slashing
I stake my claim
And once and for all
I’m free of blame
