From the recording As the Crow flies
Born with an arrow in my chest
I used to feel too scared to see the world
Love was thrown around and said too many times
Without consequence or thought for what it means
But after so many years tripping over my own feet
I'm finally sure of my own steps.
I take each breath to fall in love with the world
and not worry about the sting of regret.
I spent too many years falling down the same old way.
Never sure of what it meant to be in control
So many bridges burned it's hard to know sometimes
if it's worth building again.
Well just built it again
Before you go into the ether
just be your own smile
even once just make your own joy
Angels and Demons are all our own creation
Your worst friend and best enemy.
Don't spend too many years falling down that same old way.
Never sure what it means to be in control.
Be your own master not bound by the way
How you were told it was done been before.
Cuz That was before.
Spend time on the Cartography of your soul
Map yourself and all the places you can go.
Take your turn for the worst.
Steal a blessing out of a curse.
Each step it turns into turns into a goal.
and appreciate your breath
cuz someone somewhere is breathing their last
while you have something left
Cuz one day you be left in the past.
