about

Pre-Release to new album coming out May 2016!

A song that pays tribute to samsara, cycles, and rolling with the punches while trying to find some peace amidst it all. Truly, bless it and carry on~

lyrics

All I wanted to do was call the shots
Tell you what it is, and what it is not
But you keep getting in my way
I call it ego
You call it devil
But these things we must understand
I call them teachings
You call them demons
But these things they can get out of hand
What is the difference between your soul and your mind?
Where is your personality intertwined?

I am deconstructing all of my parts
Simplify what is and is not of my heart
and the love that it is
and the love that we are together
Together (x2)

Chorus:
So give me the hook help me understand
How these things always come round again
Reconcile my mind with my soul
My heart with my body am I already whole
The questions keep piling I don't understand
Put me back at the beginning again.

Your choice, your goals, your deeds
What makes a man fall onto his knees
Give it up, let go, hold on, stop no
I can't seem to make up my mind
A wonderful servant, a terrible master
Tell me is this really what your after
I been here before and it was a disaster
How can I change what I already am?

Chorus:
So give me the hook help me understand
How these things always come round again
Reconcile my mind with my soul
My heart with my body am I already whole
The questions keep piling I don't understand
Put me back at the beginning again.

Bridge:
I can't, I won't struggle
with the petty soul rebels
We all have our own troubles
boulder-sized to pebble
that unearth as we turn
each in time, rocks to burn
seeds to germinate and learn
what fruits we've fertilized in turn
But which Whats grow big
while Whys whither and die
uprooted
seeking refuge
craving the ripe, fertile soil
fecundity by the handfull
meaning beyond the shallow roots we've sown
Go deep
Make yourself known
If you don't wake up
You can't know your dreams

Chorus:
So give me the hook help me understand
How these things always come round again
Reconcile my mind with my soul
My heart with my body am I already whole
The questions keep piling I don't understand
Put me back at the beginning again.

Outro:
Cuz life is not just a journey
It's the destinations too
And X MARKS THE SPOT that I never want to return to
I been here before.
I been here before, I been here before
X marks the spot yeah I been here before,
I been here before I been here before
I keep coming coming back, but I won't come back no more
Keep coming back to settle the score
But I won't come back no more
No I won't come back no more.
No more ~
No more ~
