David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 26

Album
Name of Song: It’s just the way it goes

I suddenly saw the curtain
vanish from my sight,
Like a sudden realization
of metaphoric plight.

But sometimes with a metaphor,
You realize what is there,
Behind the fancy metaphor
that truth is suddenly bare.

The urge to soften reality,
The urge to soften truth,
The urge to make such metaphors
appear like we are sooth.

Chorus
Truth is not an item
sold broadly on the street,
You need to alter it just a bit
to make it taste more sweet.
When revealing truth it vanishes,
It’s just the way it goes,
Revealing we’re just spiritual beings
Invisible, you know!

Bridge
Metaphoric madness,
Metaphoric bliss,
Hiding truth in metaphors
concerning her and his.

Softening what happened
with catchy words and songs,
People will accept what has
been changed to feel less wrong.

Your mind a silent target,
It alters what you see,
It copies using pictures so
you have a life to be.

Separating self from all
the normal made by man,
The spirit doesn’t need all that,
Invisibly understands.
