Let me carry the weight of the World on my shoulders,
until I become the very Mountain I boulder;
and I'll sit right here
for a hundred million years,
ponder our existence and fears,
only to realize I'm on top of the World again.
So take your worries on down to the Riverside,
say a little prayer, and let them ride
along the curves of the Mountainside.
They'll soon turn the currants of the Ocean tide
and this is where we learn to really give our all.
I sure do like the way that This Water Falls.
Timing as of late has been seren-typical.
Serendipity typically used to seem so mystical.
With fists full of mistletoe,
kissing all the minerals,
and learning how to burst through every seam
of this entire Being.
Seeing everything that lies before, as if in a Dream.
Beaming everything that lies within, out upon the stream
we've all been blessed
to know within our common sense.
On the fence,
that I can find the consonants,
and vowels to empower me.
Showering the flower seeds
of roses we have found
on our quest for The Dark Tower.
These melodies are more
than just a place to store
these distant memories;
it's how we perform Alchemy
"How can we
learn to break free
from these boundaries?"
And I'm on my knees,
asking God if She's proud of me.
She said, "Yes, Son, but please don't bow to me.
Keep your chin up and your eyes faced forward.
Speak from your heart and be truthful with your word.
Leave a good impression
in the places you go.
Allow a healthy decompression
shortly after the show.
But at the moment in question
you’ve got a Garden to sow,
and a Party to start with some sexy People you know.
From your head to your toes,
feel that Funk.
in all the places you go
and all the people you Vibe.
Hey! Thank you for subscribing
to the Love and the Light,
just hold that feeling inside
when you rest your head at night.
Take your good intentions,
roll them up into a ball,
throw it out into The Universe,
and watch that Waterfall.
And I hope you like the way that This Water Falls."
