David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 19

Album
Name of Song: Concentration

I was always told to concentrate,
My weakness told and told,
Today we call it focusing,
And some say “be in the zone”.

Nothing’s changed in centuries,
Beings still trying to be whole,
But human beings are distracted by
that mind beneath our soul.

Ever looked more closely,
At what is really there,
Pictures made of everything,
Appearing out of air.

These pictures demand our attention,
Away from what we do,
Concentration suffers most
because they stick like glue.

Chorus
Sticky little pictures,
Demand we stick like glue,
To what they feel we must now do,
They have no care for you.

Sticky little pictures,
Demand we stick like glue,
To what they feel we must now do,
They have no care for you.

Bridge
These sticky little pictures,
Been with us since all time,
Eating away at what we are
A spirit, not a mind.
______

Ever been told to concentrate,
Or focus on what you’re doing,
Exercises help with that,
But know about this glueing.

Hidden pictures stick like glue,
So silent is their being,
Stealthily eating your soul away
Now difficulties in seeing.

Chorus
Sticky little pictures,
Demand we stick like glue,
To what they feel we must now do,
They have no care for you.

Sticky little pictures,
Demand we stick like glue,
To what they feel we must now do,
They have no care for you.
