Kicking Old Habits

July 26, 2019
by visiblydistorted

based on a random roll of Rory's Story Dice

"Change your perspective", I'm told,
"It will shift your reality.
Your worldview is conditioned,
You're programmed not to see".

Kicking old habits,
quitting, shedding skin,
Forming new patterns,
Ending all the self-destruction

"You write your story new each day,"
He says, "don't be confined,
To history, or internalized
messages in your mind."

What would cause the switch
To owning being healthy?
A life changing disability?
A deathly allergy?
Or can you find it in you
Without dire consequences,
To renovate your human,
Incorporate what enhances?

Kicking old habits,
quitting, shedding skin,
Forming new patterns,
Ending all the self-destruction

"Walk toward what works",
"You have a place to dwell,
In Body, spirit, mind and heart,
If you would treat those well",

Kicking old habits,
quitting, shedding skin,
Forming new patterns,
Ending all the self-destruction

"Nothing is preventing you
now from better choice",
"Take a look, do the work,
change your inner voice".

A hypnotic beat, as befits the idea of reprogramming yourself. Thought-provoking lyrics, particularly the section about what calamity would spur a change.

new rhythms for a new paradigm.... resetting the human clock.

Gosh, it's so hard to change that childhood programming, am I right?
As you say, DO THE WORK!!!
Great lyrics.
The complex minimalism (is that even a thing?) of your tracks reminds me a bit of Young Marble Giants.
Yeah, really nice track with a positive message.
Good job!
