LULLABY

Not that much to say for another day-
I sit and I wait and I hope that my solitude will soon be through
Just accept the wage, says the inner sage-
He sifts through my thoughts and he shows me self-servitude is never through

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can fly in my dreams
To the ground I am bound -- I cannot move ‘cause my sky has broken...

I just wanna play for another day
I dance for the joy and I nurture my innocence like it’s a gift
You think like the steer, says the inner peer
He whips me and hates me and shows me no tolerance for this ignorance

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can cry in my dreams
When I wane from the pain my eyes don’t speak
‘Cause my tears have frozen

Grow me - then I’ll
Show me - then I’ll
Flow me - and then I’ll
Know me...

I am gripped by fear - helpless like a deer
trapped in the road by the lights of a speeding car, it’s door ajar
From around the bend comes the inner friend and steers the car away
F or one more lonely day -  and what a lonely day it was...

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can die in my dreams
Here on Earth, in a berth, my ship is trapped on a molten sea -- my reality

Oh, lullaby, would you shout in my ear so I will wake from this dream
For in the dream self-esteem lies like the hands of a broken clock
Is that all I’ve got?
