Song#: 18

Album
Name of Song: The breaking of our vow

The following may sound out there,
But you sorta know by now,
All my songs are about finding self
and resolving a basic vow.

Nothing even compares,
With what I now must face,
My inner self that I left behind,
So fused without a trace.

I’m all locked up inside my mind,
It’s tricky, all this past,
Persisting into traps unknown
To find myself at last.

Stay here with my meanderings,
Stay here, right with me now,
My only thought is freedom from
My basic broken vow.

The vow I am referring to,
Is not the one you think,
But a code that every being had,
To keep each other in sync.

There is a brotherhood in this universe,
It was the way of beings,
But certain one’s, just like right now,
Invented traps for seeing.

There is no point in describing,
What I have now just seen,
But I can tell you this my friend,
It has nothing to do with genes.

Your road to your own freedom,
Is within your grasp to start,
And the only way to free yourself,
Is to sort out your own part.

Our pasts are fused in horror,
And lots and lots of love,
And somehow we stopped looking for,
And forgot, we’re from above.

Separating and realizing,
We’re not that stuff we’re in,
We’re spirits locked in solid forms,
Trapped in all this skin.

Our pasts are full of yearning
For better times we knew,
Dreaming on about those things
For hope for me and you.

Start your own adventure,
Face your demons strong,
They’re only pictures of what you did,
So never think you’re wrong.

Persistence always triumphs,
Being humble softens the blows,
Respect yourself and others as
you face the things you chose.

Start your own adventure,
Face your demons strong,
They’re only pictures of what you did,
So never think you’re wrong.

Persistence always triumphs,
Being humble softens the blows,
Respect yourself and others as
you face the things you chose.
