Breathe

I want to ask you a favor
And to try something out with me
Make yourself comfortable in your seats
And breathe in and out soberly

Feel the lungs as they rise and fall
Feel the present
Is it morning, evening, or nightfall?

You see,
There are many theories out there for why it all exists?
Supreme Being, a Big Bang, the Cosmic Catalyst

But what if we were led on a giant goose chase
Our Search for a Truth,
A coup de grace

What if we may never really know

What really goes on, beyond or below,
What if that could be the greatest thought of all
That we are just a part of it all, neither big nor small

What if the point of life is just to be alive, to thrive, to survive, to grow, to bestow
We are all actors, and this is the Show

And we are already doing it
Feel your heartbeat
We’re already completely incomplete

Right now we exist
Right now we reminisce
Right now we choose to insist

And I wonder what the world could look like
We all quit our jobs, go on strike
We’re going on vacation, going on a hike, with mike, he’s got a cool bike

I wonder what it would mean to just be
Without needing to be a cog in some factory
A man without a function
Just breathing is not a malfunction

I want to ask you a favor
And to try something out with me
Make yourself comfortable in your seats
And breathe in and out soberly

I don’t know what is out there
And I don’t know what will be
But I do know that right now
There is you, and there is me

Three Wishes



What is eternity worth
When I can not live today?

What hope can revelation offer
When I've forgotten how to pray?

What can a fortune buy
When a penny has no use?

What solace can fame provide
When life is spent as a recluse?

How long does a moment last
Out of context, out of frame?

Why run towards completion
When you realize it's a game?

I have no use for three wishes
Barely have use for one.

Why focus on the end
When I have only just begun?
