lyrics

in this place at this time
we exist in a mystery
where each breath is a victory
where the culmination of history
and her story coincide
right now this moment in time

it exists in the words
expressed here in verse
i wonder why we're all trained
to consider death as a curse

as if it werent part and parcel with birth
its this fear thats got us
that much easier to heard

lets confront it
its clear we dont get much from running
here we are standing
right in front of it

push the doors of perception
past the boors and their deceptions
this is the last chance we have
to abort our oppression



we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
were bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate

we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
we stand bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate



we're free to form our own distinctions
ask myself who taught me to fear the criticism
as if my hearts wisdom
werent enough to see the vision
it is
as if it werent a natural expression
of which were all adept with
if only unpracticed
im only writing letters
and descriptions of my action
musing and reflection on my
move across the atlas
what ive kept and what ive let
fall back to the past

this letter is open to the public
that i may share the source code for
all of my accomplishments

ask for assitance when in need of it
please respond to this
even if you wish that your name remains anonymous

lets all add our thoughts to this
culture of consciousness
so when we meet we'll trade names
talk and live
as people who are confident
in what the story will be
when its told in our biographies



we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
were bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate

we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
we stand bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate


we all have our part to play
i'm learning to shape it
with the rhythm in my heart each day

i work with art to pave
a path to walk through darker days
a trail to find for someone lost
with nothing left to mark their way

this is an open ended conversation
i'll be looking for responses
on walls in galleries and bus stations

this is my hope expressed through exhalation
i'll be looking for its remenants
when i'm old and i've lost all my patience

collective memories
collected when we draw and paint it

intensive energy
injected through the larger matrix

we are the basic element of inspiration
relevent to where we take it
and the way that we exchange it

shift the pattern take some action rearrange it
its just matter moving faster with each day spent

when nothing's left but my last breath
i wanna take it with the depth of all i've lived
all i've given and my faith in it

we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
were bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate

we open our eyes
then begin to see
when we open our lives
we stand bending in the breeze

like reeds
take a moment
appreciate the suns medicine
we sing songs so we can medicate
