Name of Song: Searching for self

Searching for self,
Can be lonely at times,
Our urge to increase
our inner strength over mind.

What are we looking for,
When searching our mind,
After all we’re invisible,
And we’re not made of time.

Daunting at best,
An occasional win,
But really a crapshoot
To find calm in our skin.

Chorus
Searching for self,
But really just calm,
The problem we’re invisible,
Not mentioned in psalms.
Searching for self,
But really just calm,
The problem we’re invisible,
Not mentioned in psalms.

Bridge
We are our own leader,
Surviving for life,
Making our mark
without a real knife.
Striving for peace,
Wanting to be kind,
Seeking out pleasure
In a world that’s gone blind.

So what do we do,
What do we feel,
What do we think
So it feels sort of real.

Look in the mirror,
The answer is there,
You know your own truth,
No need to despair.
