It’s That Kinda Introspective Day…

… where song lyrics say it all.

“For Goodness Sake”
By Chuck Ragan

Simple backbeats seem to soothe me.
If I could hold them, I would. Let’s say,
take some rest, as if not wicked.
And walk around enjoying silence.
A world away, elders gather,
Speak thier tongue and hardly falter.

With words of bond, joy and grievance,
Simple songs, work and penance.
To drown hate like a stone, walk the path overgrown.

Never to lay awake, and if so for goodness sake.

Well down the road the deer are crossing,
The grass is greener where there walking.
Rattling beasts and heavy movement,
mark them now son before we lose them.
Bear your arms, ever so wisely, or burn them all, if you have no need.
And dress to kill but kill so kindly.
A hollow heart’s to weak and weary.

To drown hate like a stone, and walk the path overgrown.
Never to lay awake, and if so for goodness sake.

Now call me crazy, but all the old ways, of living simple are simply fading.
And all we buy is time before we die and lay on down desensitized.

A wise old friend recently told me, “an idle mind is the devils playpen”.
Mind the gaps and watch them closely.
Spread the love, but choose your friends wisely.
Love yourself, to love your family and find the difference between wants and needs.
Be sure to stop and count your blessings, smell the roses and fight for something.

To drown hate like a stone, and walk the path overgrown.
Never to lay awake, and if so for goodness sake.

Now call me crazy but all the old ways, of living simple, are simply fading.
All we buy is time before we die, and lay on down desensitized.
