David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 18

Album
Name of Song: We are basically good inside

Letting go with all the things
you know you shouldn’t do,
Holding any line you had
gets lost but so do you.

It is the way it goes for,
Us humans with a mind,
‘Cause minds have all those devious things
we’d rather leave behind.

Chorus
We are basically good inside,
We know what’s right from wrong,
We change by mindful urges that
have been with us too long.
We are basically good inside,
We know what’s right from wrong,
We change by mindful urges that
have been with us too long.

Bridge
How do you live sanely,
Inside an unfriendly mind.
Designed to sorta drive you nuts
and leave you lost in time.
Many talk about demons,
Maybe they are right,
But knowing how to make them vanish
is actually the fight.

Trying to live sorta sanely,
Inside an unfriendly mind.
Designed to really drive you nuts
and leave you inside time.

Many talk about demons,
Maybe they are right,
But knowing how to make them vanish
is actually the fight.

If you were really honest
with yourself about your mind,
You’d latch onto a way to make
it vanish into time.
