Just A Fraction
______________
Always it's about your choice of action and
I know I don't know mine
Couldn't we embrace the fact that we are always wrong
Destined to know what's right just to lose it.

Only when we learn we're just a fraction and
Our whole is what's outside
Then we can't contain all of the joy that comes with the
Knowing that there's no more mine
Ours is more than fine.

I'm not anything without acknowledging that I'm not anything without acknowledging that I'm not anything without acknowledging that I'm not anything without acknowledging that I'm not anything without acknowledging that I'm not anything without

All the thought's I've gathered here are nothing
Garbled obfuscated and erupting
Illustrations in my mind
Coloring the facts tarnish of time

Some minds might move too much to sit down
Others never even make a sound
Stay still while I cast an evil spell
So you can understand these words as well

We speak in codes
Nobody knows
The feels they go and go
We speak in codes
That nobody knows
That nobody knows
mmmmmmmmmm

Where did you go?
To the next room
Taking a step every breath as I move

I feel long
I feel burrowed
I don't belong
And I feel curled

Where did I go?
To the next day!
When I shed my skin I feel arranged
When I feel arranged I feel shuffled
When I feel too loud I feel muffled

Every feeling has a ceiling. Is yours falling down?
I've been scheming of a place where I can get around.
Loops and frays, our pack of strays will soon become a breed.
Lifting lenses, mending fences, fruition of dreams

_____________________________________________________________


I decided to put a few songs that fit together thematically.

Like much of my more recent music these songs were "improvised" and written on the spot.

These songs deal with atypical communication, belief in our ability to heal our world and coalesce as humans through love, and struggling to navigate social situations.

Enjoy!
