Cosmically attuned, galactically aligned yet lost in corridors between my own mind Come to ocean, peace to find To a stone in this cliff my life's a grain in time Here to purify so I follow the moon Every month I bleed as though there's a war in my womb as though in sympathy for all the casualties all the life dreams that never got to be Lying here at river's end, stranded on sand This day week moment life didn't work out as planned washed up, on dry land This life such a blessing, so why been I stressing, obsessing, when everything seems pressing, oppressing, pressing oppressing oppressing just depressing Don't know where I go next year next week Don't know how to find don't know what I seek O Mama Ocean can you pretty please tell me, could I buy truth is it something you'd sell me? Ha - enlightenment come from within And every beginning encloses its end This life is a river going to the sea Beauty and pain raining down on me World full of ignorance, greed, desire One foot in the icicles, one on fire Pain and torture beyond description Happiness an addiction, temporary fiction No rainbows without the rain Beauty come from divine light shining through pain The coldest moment comes before the dawn so I turn in faith to face the dark horizon Let go and trust, let go and trust And sometimes you've got to just say 'fuck it' and Dance Still sun through the trees says be, be at ease I bow at feet of poets through the centuries who wrote it, who spoke it, the story of the soul who told it, the whole damn story of the soul Put here for a reason but I don't know why We are a flock of birds swooping, infinite sky Rain from the sky drops, plants n me drinking Molecules collide, we're the universe thinking Brown into green into green into brown Everything, everything comes back around You've been waiting for the day when you can feel whole but the path is the goal, the path is the goal So blessed, so blessed still we forget to see it So busy becoming that we forget to be it Enlightenment is here if you'd learn to accept it The universe is magic so learn to expect it Gratitude, for this body this light Gratitude for this cold, gratitude for this night Gratitude for all the mud, forced me to get clean Gratitude for wounds taught me how to heal again We're each required to grow, the universe demands You can't plant seeds if you got closed hands You've been waiting for the day when you can feel whole but the path is the goal, the path is the goal No rainbows without the rain Beauty come from divine light shining through pain The coldest moment comes before the dawn so I turn in faith to face the dark horizon Let go and trust, let go and trust And sometimes you've got to just say 'fuck it' and Dance
