Let it out

Toxic
Tempting angles
Pouring pavement on our problems

Frantic
Filling holes of
Dying souls unconscious degradation

Often overwhelmed by every avenue of chance
Often much too full to swallow fate and let it dance

Realize
Open your eyes

Laughing
Little magnets
They keep pulling us along

Virus
Of the ages
So contagious
Is our own denial

Why the holding back and keeping in
What’s with the isolation?
When will we collapse into the
Trance of open dream

Seen it all before
Neglecting every doubt
Be the one
To go down
The hole and choke it out

Seen it all before
Dissected every doubt
Be the one
To go down
The hole and choke it out

I need water
So unstable
Come and choke it out from in me somehow

Get away from this, somehow
Meditate on this, somehow
Get away a little
A little bit

Let it out

Realize
We’re all a thought
Realign
With the collective mind
Say goodbye
To all the blind
Be alive
Within the dream of light

Blinding water
Liquid savior
Come and choke it out from in me
Somehow
