Name of Song: Living for my body

Living for my body,
Occasionally see myself,
When absorbed into my body
there seems like nothing else.

Waiting for its permission,
More as I get old,
I simply want to feel good
so I remember my own soul.

The thing that’s got me worried,
I know someday I’ll die,
Then have to do it all again,
Must figure out just why.

Chorus
Living for my body,
I know I’m not its flesh,
I long ago remembered
when I died I felt refreshed.
Living for my body,
I know I’m not its flesh,
I long ago remembered
when I died I felt refreshed.

Bridge
Bodies come and bodies go,
We all agree they do,
Start agreeing you don’t die
and you remain just you.
We like to think of saviors,
God helps those who help themselves,
Remember always who you are,
Yourself, and no one else.

Pets are always breeding,
Nature made it so,
Bodies come and bodies go,
You know you made it so.
