David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 16

Album
Name of Song: Motives so silent

Observing in silence,
Figuring as I go,
Understanding motives,
Just trying to know.

So many mysteries
That come into view,
But mainly about motives,
That make people do.

It seems never ending,
Makes me want to give up,
And leave for the country
Where friends share a cup.

Chorus
Observing the obvious,
Sometimes not what it seems,
You have to look harder
To see inside the dream.
People are honest
When familiar with things,
When that appears missing
You have to pull on their strings.

I like to observe,
And then understand,
But sometimes it’s harder
To figure out what they plan.

People are drugged,
And it’s more than a few,
We are hit by those delusory
feelings on cue.

It’s not they are bad,
It’s just they are drugged,
And so goes the way
Of a culture that shrugs.
