about

A song about self awareness.

lyrics

Once there was a little child, trapped inside a smile
Tried it’s best to integrate if only for a while
Everything to satisfy the people in their lives
Found that can be difficult when there’s less sand in the top

Freedom comes to countless few who sacrifice their lives
Easier to ride the wave than crashed upon the shore
Empty vases, void of water, dried buds gathered dust
Where there was a shiny coat, now’s turn into rust

I am, I am I am alive
I have, I have, I have not died
I’ve done my best to satisfy the loved ones in my life
I am, I am I am alive

Pale new skin, velvet like, covered now in sores
Felt the danger, lived and breathed, and I know the score
Life is not your own, they say, maybe in a dream
That lingers from the misty depths that will make you scream

There’s a time I wanted to listen everyday
Tried to find out why you all, walked the other way
I thought it was my aura but I know that’s not true
There are people who love me, just like people do

I am, I am I am alive
I have, I have, I have not died
I’ve done my best to satisfy the losers in my life
I am, I am I am alive

Now I see the mystery, unraveled for you all
Tried to catch it in my arms, breathed it in my soul
But the only difference is I opened up my mind
I began, to accept the way it is . . . and who am I to question?
