David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 13

Album
Name of Song: I am safe in my own body

Living here on Earth,
A very strange place,
I’ve tried to get used to it
but it always feel no space.

I’ve lived here for a long time,
Much longer than most,
Many many less people then,
I was always a perfect host.

Then overwhelm took over,
A long long time ago,
It changed life to its very core,
And so few really know.

Chorus
I loved this planet dearly,
Endless pleasant life,
Competition unnecessary,
Devoid of usual strife.
But sadly we weren’t ready,
For what enveloped us,
Overwhelm so overwhelming
No sounds or usual fuss.

Bridge
People became so hypnotized,
No one felt it strange,
Their overwhelm so inviting
they have no urge to change.
Now it’s common to forget
at least your last lifetime,
It’s all about amnesia, yes,
Just laugh and blame your mind.

So what do you do with a planet
of people hypnotized,
Who resentfully deny it
when you gently apprise.

Incorrigible resistance
to facing what we’ve become.
‘I told you I’m not a Spirit,
I’m a body part of one”.

Hopefully not everyone,
At least to us who know,
Learning only body things
You’ll miss your chance to grow.

People became so hypnotized,
No one felt it strange,
Their overwhelm so inviting
they have no urge to change.

Now it’s common to forget
at least your last lifetime,
It’s all about amnesia, yes,
Just laugh and blame your mind.
