Come to My Senses

It's just one of those days
You know what I mean?
Just one of those days
I woke up in a dream
The clouds were grey
With blue in between
I just wanted to stay in bed

But I walk through the world
Trying to open my eyes
I walk through the world
To know I'm alive
I can't take even one step
Without forgetting…

To come to my senses
Come to my senses
Come to my senses
To hear the call
See the light
Feel my way

I am trapped in a cloud
Swaddled in cloth
Wrapped in a shroud
I can't shake it off
It's a soft dark womb
A cotton cocoon
But I want out

I want to fly free
Like the birds above me
Eyes full of seeing
Beaks full of scent
Wings full of air
Always, ever aware of each feather
Each movement

I press my palm against the barbed wire
I press my face against the wet ground
I press my ear against the sound, against the sound, against the sound
Let me go down inside it
Down below it
Down to the sound of no sound

I never know what I'll find
I'm always amazed
Forever surprised
Everything, every day
Is full of guidance and beauty
Why can't I pay better attention?
Why can't I pay better attention?
