"Well thats just the way that it is son!" (with strong southern american drawl)..... hmmm...


Alone in the garden with no clear way
Here comes the worry what will people say
Without your magic I'm lost like a drip
Roll off the leaf and let reality slip
I'm losing the sunshine now where did you go
I shrink to bacteria unable to grow
I slip in the puddle and trip in the mud
I crawl through mandalas in search for above

I foresee the end now our time has come
Over compromised I'm ready to run
In light of the memory I'll break the cake
No winners feast just this bitter taste
Feeling so normal just the way that it is
Your disapproval the burn the guilt
Time to move on I need a vulnerable space
To process emotion embrace this change

I roll I choose this path
Now where will it go
I seek I try I learn
How can I go wrong
