Today our minds will wander In directions unknown Just seconds prior They will wander from regret And wander from reworking They will wander from longing And wander from instigating Today our minds will wander Into the atoms that make up everything Where one gets his energy is where my mind is heading Do the neurons send and receive a simplistic love that that’s easy to breath Or do they recycle the negative things Twist and turn the heart until the mind is useless Waisted molecules when the past replaces dreams When the mind stops roaming And you’re left in stagnancy So full of mourning the loss of discovery When the mind stops roaming Petty grievances become one's peace Wack job tongues, senseless cruelty The kind of shit that gets your car keyed Dear God, Jesus Please I forgive this world for all its deeds Reckon with life Reckon with me Flush the residue, In me and him and her and we Until the heart feels renewed And the brain goes free Flush the residue For all of mankind and, yes Please, me Let me wander past what pits me against me Today our minds will wander Into the nothingness of love unending They will pointlessly even ponder what could repaint everything And yes they will definitely wonder What good lies within each man The true beauty of life Perfectly revealed within They will wander into new colors They will wander into themes And somehow uncover What unifies our deepest dreams Today our minds will wander They wander to no real end Today our minds will wander Until we feel human again Until we feel human again
