Liner Notes: 

Found the Skirmish on "Cowardice" and create a mindmap and then free writing based on the prompt. When I started writing the lyrics, I imagined a seed that chooses to stay small and not grow. I then created this chorus that sounded super Buddhist - these seem to be Metta Meditation mantras - and so I wanted to have the second verse be more uplifting.

I'm living in community at Omega Institute and some friends were hanging out in the living room. I recorded this on my phone in the noisy bathroom.

Lyrics: 

Stay small
Never branch out
Remain a tiny little seed
In the garden
Sunlight longs to kiss your face
Yet you remain in the dirt
Too scared
To open up your eyes
So long
That you see only shadows
Starlight could guide you far
Yet you dwell in the hurts

May you find peace
May you find happiness
May you find confidence
To push through
May you find peace
May you find confidence
To live true

Grow tall
To the great heights
Golden flower petals
In the daylight
Nod along in the midday breeze
For all to see
You’re beautiful

May you find peace
May you find happiness
May you find confidence
To push through
May you find peace
May you find confidence
To live true
