Name of Song: Wrapped in pictures

We’re wrapped in pictures,
Of what we see,
We can’t stop making them,
But it keeps us from being.

We see something beautiful,
Must copy it now,
Then carry it round with us,
Thinking about it and how.

Chorus
We never quite figure
It out or just see,
We’re addicted to pictures,
Instead of just being.
______

We keep on doing it,
We can’t seem to stop,
The thought of just being,
Is what we cannot.

So on we continue,
And so do our friends,
Some think they can change what,
We all so depend.

Chorus
We never quite figure
It out or just see,
We’re addicted to pictures,
Instead of just being.
______

I know I am stillness,
I know I am calm,
I like to observe things,
Without any qualm.

I know I’m a spirit,
I’m not made of cells,
I know I am timeless,
But my body must stay well.

I have chosen to live here,
A long time ago,
I’m a part of the problem,
My urge to go with the flow.

Chorus
We never quite figure
It out or just see,
We’re addicted to pictures,
Instead of just being.

We’re wrapped in pictures,
Of what we see,
We can’t stop making them,
But it keeps us from being.

We see something beautiful,
Must copy it now,
Then carry it round with us,
Thinking about it and how.

Chorus
We never quite figure
It out or just see,
We’re addicted to pictures,
Instead of just being.

We never quite figure
It out or just see,
We’re addicted to pictures,
Instead of just being.
