Name of Song: Mistakes I’ve made

Looking back in times gone past,
Cloudy recalls not part of now.
Urging sensations still come out from them,
I am the result of this ongoing endow. 

I made mistakes in meeting people,
I gave them myself because I could,
I denied myself instead of just being,
Felt I was doing the greater good.

The urge we have to blend in,
The desire to help our fellow man,
These things are common to all of us,
It’s how it all began.

Chorus
Pieces of our being
Spread out along our pasts,
Now comes the task of collecting ourselves,
From those remains of earlier tasks.

I can’t imagine a harder task for me,
My overwhelm and deaths of times gone by,
How to release their trapped attention in these pasts,
So to bring them all back into my now.

They have trails that you can trace back,
There is a skill involved to not get lost,
Out maneuvering the many dead end roads,
And commands to go somewhere else.

Most people won’t want to do this process,
Many will say it’s all a waste of their time,
And a lot will say that the past is the past,
No need to add to what I already have still to climb.

Chorus
Pieces of our being
Spread out along our pasts,
Now comes the task of collecting ourselves,
From those remains of earlier tasks.

It’s actually an adventure,
One that’s never been won before,
You may have wondered why you’re still stuck in,
To your body, that always seems a chore.

You may think being stuck in your body is quite the normal,
You may sometimes think you’re not who you really seem,
You may be convinced that what you feel is what you’re made of,
Come time to die you’ll finally wake up from your insidious dream.

When you were young did you ever dream you were free of your body,
Flying around and doing and seeing whatever you want,
Did you then wake up and know that this was just an illusion,
Aren’t you tired of pretending to not be a spiritual being?

Chorus
Pieces of our being
Spread out along our pasts,
Now comes the task of collecting ourselves,
From those remains of earlier tasks.

When you were young did you ever dream you were free of your body,
Flying around and doing and seeing whatever you want,
Did you then wake up and know that this was just an illusion,
Aren’t you tired of pretending to not be a spiritual being?
