Karma Comedian

Songs of Ascension : Track

 

So here I sit
This is not the path I asked for
Submit to it, no choice
Commit to the downpour
A chance to breathe, survey the situation
The web I weave to snare my own conclusion

Walk awhile my little one
Each direction leads to fun
Don't say a word of madness
Leave behind all the sadness

Fly in the face of fear
There are no dragons here
Fly in the face of fear
There are no dragons

I suck on seeds
To root me
Like a sap I bleed
My energy, raining out of me
Wash my eyes in a lullaby of time
So many ties
To this, life, line of mine

A fancy dream of heroes, knights and kings
To forgo the stream of life
For all eternity sings
Of the love she brings, c'mon

Walking on thin ice, gravity pays the price
My Karma Comedian grins
Fighting with fables
Hiding under the table
Wonder when wonder begins
Yeah I wonder

Walk a while my little one
Each direction leads to fun
Don't say a word of madness
Leave behind all the sadness

Fly in the face of fear
There are no dragons…
Fly in the face of fear
There are no dragons here my dear
Fly in the face of fear
There are no dragons

So here I sit
This is not the path I asked for
Submit to it no choice
Commit to the downpour

 

Pins and needles spooks and weevils
Messing with my mind
Pins and needles spooks and weevils
Messing with my mind
Pins and needles
Spooks and weevils
Messing with my
Messing with my
Messing with my mind
