tall grasses
hide behind the tree
make it to the boat
hope to stay afloat

when you wake up feeling
in your empty space
are you in a rush to fill it
and let the outside take its place?
sit back and feel the rush of the machines
as they fill the spaces in between

lead a quiet revolution
beating wings
are part of your solution

it's OK not to speak
you can choose instead
eye contact in a crowd
a smile says it all
just not aloud

hide behind the sun
cannot see
stay behind the lines
lose the forest for the trees
leave no stone unturned
stop and count the leaves

hush my booie
lead a quiet revolution
beating wings
are part of your solution

voices on the surface of the water
speaking very slowly
you just have to wait
there's no need for intrigue
they have happy things to say

beat them with a slow stare down
blink and make them go under
foresight not to plunder
do you have the will to wait?
