When Morning Comes

a fishingrod and a swimmingpool 

dump my regrets but keep sitting on the stool 

while I figure out what will be the sum 

of having fun 


the stodgy food and my heavy head 

cry out lines from my manifest 

pipe dreams that seems to fluctuate 

it’s mounting up


people caught in bigotry 

I let go 

of all the frantic activity 

just watch the show 

the world in perfect symmetry 


flee one night and come home the next 

I ride high but there’s no time to rest 

because when reality hits, it hits hard 

I fall apart 

when morning comes 


I skipped like a stone on the sea 

but like a rock I sank to the deep

at the bottom of the swimmingpool 

iot’s mounting up


people caught in bigotry 

I let go 

of all the frantic activity 

just watch the show 

the world in perfect symmetry don’t you know 

why can’t we just let it be

go with the flow 

it’s all a joke 


a fishingrod and a swimmingpool 

dump my regrets but keep sitting on the stool 

while I figure out what will be the sum 

of having fun 

when morning comes 


people caught in bigotry 

I let go 

of all the frantic activity 

just watch the show 

the world in perfect symmetry don’t you know 

why can’t we just let it be

go with the flow 

it’s all a joke
