David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 19

Album
Name of Song: Your own reactive mind

Separating out,
Alone but more free,
There’s no other way
to understand your own being.

Hoping that someone
Will tell you what’s wrong,
Is really quite lame
if you want to be strong.

Chorus
Think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Know all the facts,
Then consult your own being.
You must think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Understand all those facts,
It’s surprisingly freeing.

Separating out,
Alone but more free,
There’s no other way
To understand your own being.

Hoping that someone
will tell you what’s wrong,
Is really quite lame
if you want to be strong.

If you want to be strong,
If you want to be free,
Trust your own self,
Trust your own being.

Chorus
Think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Know all the facts,
Then consult your own being.
You must think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Understand all those facts,
It’s surprisingly freeing.
_______

There’s really no trick,
To feeling more free,
Be willing to look,
Be willing to just be.

Some things are hard
To see through their lies,
Welcome to Earth
where lies make you seem wise.

Chorus
Think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Know all the facts,
Then consult your own being.
You must think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Understand all those facts,
It’s surprisingly freeing.
_______

This is the planet,
Where crime is the king,
It’s all over the movies,
It causes people to cling.

Agreement still governs,
Use what people agree,
Change that dynamic
And you’ll feel much more free.

You may complain about crime,
And an unfaithful spouse,
Turn off your TV,
It’s infecting your house.

Chorus
Think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Know all the facts,
Then consult your own being.
You must think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Understand all those facts,
It’s surprisingly freeing.
_______

Welcome to Earth,
Where it’s run by a mind,
Reactive as hell,
It erases your sublime.

It demands your agreement,
By emotional pain,
Or the tease of sensation,
And you’re told it’s your brain.

Chorus
Think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Know all the facts,
Then consult your own being.
You must think for yourself,
Observe what you’re seeing,
Understand all those facts,
It’s surprisingly freeing.

Bridge
How long have you had it?,
Your own reactive mind,
As long as you remember
all your memories in time.
