lyrics

Determination I saw the rain and ran to greet it, Hoping to relieve my mind of all the thoughts of you and I The memories, but then again the best friend to darkness is the light, It makes it rare, so then I see. Please don’t pretend that you won’t miss me. Just don’t pretend you won’t miss me. Crowded church on the night of the New Year. A daughter looks up at a familiar full beard, And from the mouth of the man with no fears hears, “How do we find out if we’re really here.” E.g, what is the worth of another man’s life In the presence of another man’s wife to that other man’s sight, Frightened by the sound of a pound hitting ground, Found by the drum of a hound. Howling at the sun’s pale pal, smile. You lived long enough to be here right now. He’s gonna be here for awhile but the villain wouldn’t worry, so why should the child? Vile is the hero who is hidden when the road into battle is heavy ridden. Sickened by the mimicking cries of the visiting tribesmen explaining how they view your environment, His children think ‘freedom’ means ‘violence’. I saw the rain and ran to greet it, Hoping to relieve my mind of all the thoughts of you and I The memories, but then again the best friend to darkness is the light, It makes it rare, so then I see. Please don’t pretend that you won’t miss me. Just don’t pretend you won’t miss me. When you were walking thru hell, do tell what you felt The moment that you pulled yourself away from yourself, And noticed that the lotus flower blossom is a tower In the distance, where there’s power and resistance to be found. Surrounded by strands that will bind when they can, But found was a man, hands unbound, strands counted not plenty. Demands deemed civil and petty, and judgement seen fit by plenty, Wide-eyed, ready. Now time is moving slower than it should be. I feel fine although I could do better, somehow I’m losing my sense of the center But better talk about that DOW, gotta cash that cow, if you’re not here yet, figure out how now. Don’t worry. People tend to move in a hurry, it’s better to be heard than be earnest. Even if your herein’ (hurtin’). Flock gon’ listen and come. Crop might sell n then some. Trail no crumbs. Hungry don’t wait in no line gotta count a couple cents at a time Makin’ sense to a dime ain’t a serious concern to me. Are you not yet bored, can they play the next chord? There, relief is a rarely gotten treat So I smile when I get a little piece. Peace. I saw the rain and ran to greet it, Hoping to relieve my mind of all the thoughts of you and I The memories, but then again the best friend to darkness is the light, It makes it rare, so then I see. Please don’t pretend that you won’t miss me. Just don’t pretend you won’t miss me. I saw the rain and ran to greet it, Hoping to relieve my mind of all the thoughts of you and I The memories, but then again the best friend to darkness is the light, It makes it rare, so then I see. Please don’t pretend that you won’t miss me. Cuz we can’t pretend we don’t miss..
