Song#: 15

Album
Name of Song: It’s hidden

So, time continues on,
You’re infused within the mix,
Hard to see what’s holding you,
Expecting that quick fix.

But even when you get it,
It usually returns,
Bigger stronger than ever seems,
And the burn prevents the learn.

Ignoring it is usual,
Hard to find its source,
Drugs and alcohol never last,
But at least they run their course.

Chorus
Perceiving just how hidden,
That block that drives you mad,

Inside you, or inside them,
You end up feeling bad.
You think we would have seen it,
What lurks beneath our soul,
So so many lifetimes tried
To make oneself feel whole.
______

No one really talks about it,
Very few seem to care,
Except when social structures fail,
And the system goes into despair.

So fashionable to ignore it,
You always must look whole,
But that pain and grief is there to drive
Deep into your own hole.

Chorus
Perceiving just how hidden,
That block that drives you mad,

Inside you, or inside them,
You end up feeling bad.
You think we would have seen it,
What lurks beneath our soul,
So so many lifetimes tried
To make oneself feel whole.

Bridge
Come on all ye adventurers,
It’s not as hard as you think,
Start remembering pleasure times
They’ll keep you from the brink.
