Loose EndsOctagon Sessions

Please put your hand over my mouth.
Please tell me to just cut that out.
It's hard to feel alive being so afflicted.
It’s better to feel like a survivor than a victim.
So I change perspective
When shit gets hectic
And I start swirling around, around, around,
And around.

Gonna replant my garden.
Gonna water the seeds.
Gonna stop being martyr.
Gonna flow with the breeze.

Please keep your hand over my mouth.
Remind me to just leave that out.
It's good to be alive even though afflicted.
It’s better to feel like a survivor than a victim.
So I change perspective.
Needle off the record
To stop from swirling around, around, around,
And around.

Gonna replant my garden.
Gonna water the seeds.
Gonna stop being martyr.
Gonna flow with the breeze.
Gonna replant my garden.
Gonna water the seeds.
Gonna work a little harder.
Gonna roll up my sleeves.

I'll tighten up the loose ends.
I'll loosen up what's too tightened.

I'll keep my heart and head
Focused out, focused in
So I can feel I’m me
Connected with everything.
I'll keep my heart and head
Focused out, focused in
So I can feel I’m we
Connected with everything.

Gonna replant my garden.
Gonna water the seeds.
Gonna stop being martyr.
Gonna flow with the breeze.
Gonna replant my garden.
Gonna water the seeds.
Gonna work a little smarter.
Gonna roll up my sleeves.

I'll tighten up the loose ends.

I'll keep my heart and head
Focused out, focused in
So I can feel I’m me
Connected with everything.

Folks keep dying.
Loved ones crying.
Dropping to their knees.
Getting shot up in the street.
Bombs keep falling.
Folks keep crawling
Out from the depths of disease.
70 million refugees!
Folks keep surviving.
They keep striving
With such resiliency,
Much stronger than me.
