The world is constantly shifting, of course on a molecular level, but also some sort of poetic one, and for my tiny existence as a well. As we change locations, jobs, friends, and schools, things change about us. We get a moment to see ourselves in a vacuum, unaffected by a current location, its social constructs, and at a critical moment of being able to determine your self, thoughts, and worldview once more. It's the soft tissue that later forms solid bones, it's what fuels my Wanderlust.
I could break away from every choice I've ever made.
Just my thoughts and my limbs and my beats and you I know.
Shove the whole view aside, and turn towards the eternal eye (I?)
I've come a long way but, it's everything that I know.
But it could be better, I'm gonna make you feel better.
Take to ideas and push them together, facing me you will feel better.
It's everything that I know
Sneak off and live with me, somewhere in the Pyrenees,
take our time on the way, ain't we in? (I know).
Together we'll ground our feet, the air perfumed, the scent of trees,
I've come a long way, but it's everything that I know!
It's a simple way from, all the thistle and the smog -
take your time to figure, in a conscious manner, make a map of your mind.
