All That Noise
Had to work until 4 pm, but couldn't miss two Sunday skirmishes in a row!
My wife and I were leading a meditation workshop, so my song is about what often keeps us from achieving meditative calm and focus.
What’s the matter with my head?
All that chatter – I’m being misled
I try to be still but I keep on spinning
All that noise and it keeps on winning
What’s the trouble with my mind?
Used to be supple – now it’s confined
Close my eyes I just feel blind
All that noise – no peace do I find
I’m trapped in my lounge chair
Feel like I’m being chased by an angry bear
Scary whisper, then a painful shout
All that noise – no way out
What’s the motivation for what I am doing?
What’s the station to which I am tuning?
What meditation? This is agony
All that noise following me
Wait … now I’m sitting quietly
Oh … that noise was just me
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
