Lyrics:


I think you know

how hard I try

so there's no hesitation and I

still can operate, so when you

say what's on my plate and though I

might not pull my weight

it's on my mind


When thoughts run slow,

not young and spry,

I try to cultivate what spirit

I can still create but that means

sometimes isolation's all that

I can tolerate, but

still, I try


Where do I see myself next year? I'm

staying course, I'm far from here

Wake up in a time or place, where

I see you and touch your face, but

honestly, I'd rather be

contained in my geography, just

given how I am these days, it's

gonna take some time to clear my haze


Fast-forward ten or twenty years,

still trapped with the same petty fears, wish

I'd wake up an optimist,

adept epistemologist,

fix every unjust piece of trust,

allow myself the right to just

exist a day, a century,

OK with flat trajectory

Don't need ambition, place, or wealth

just give me friends and mental health

But how does one connect the dots

and not get lost in tangled thoughts?

With progress like a bus in snow

and bird's-eye-view-caused vertigo

I guess the thing to do is rest,

expressed all that I can express tonight
