“Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon” ~ Masahide

lyrics

PICTURE THIS, LATE ONE NIGHT
YOU TRY TO SLEEP, SOMETHING’S NOT RIGHT
YOU FLIP THE SWITCH, THE LIGHT STAYS ON
YOU CHECK THE CLOCK & SOMETHING’S WRONG
CAUSE YOU CAN’T FOCUS ON THE TIME
THERE’S NO REASON ONLY RHYME
YOU TRY & LAY DOWN ON YOUR BED
YOUR BODY FLOATS AWAY INSTEAD....

AND AS YOU’RE FLYING, YOU KEEP REACHING
FOR SOME MEANING, FOR SOME TEACHING
BUT IT’S JUST THE LETTING GO
THAT’S THE PART YOU NEED TO KNOW

SO NOW YOU THINK, YOU MIGHT BE DEAD
YOUR LIFE DON’T LOOK, QUITE LIKE THEY SAID
BUT WHO ARE THEY?, WHAT DO THEY KNOW?
YOU’RE THE ONE, WHO CALLS THE SHOW
BUT FROM UP HERE YOU SEE IT ALL
& IT SEEMS A LONG, LONG WAY TO FALL
AND IN THAT ONE MOMENT OF FEAR
YOU GIVE UP AND IT COMES CLEAR...

YOU AWAKE, OUT OF YOUR HEAD
AND IN THE UNIVERSE INSTEAD
A SPECK OF DUST, A GRAIN OF SAND
BUT HERE AND NOW YOU UNDERSTAND
YOUR TINY WORLD JUST OPENED WIDE
NO NEED TO STAY INSIDE AND HIDE
THE TRUTH & JOY THAT YOU GIVE
ARE THE ONLY THINGS THAT LIVE
