today
i would like nothing
but to sit on a rock

I wanna be better than oxygen
So you can breathe when you’re drowning and weak in the knees
I wanna speak louder than Ritalin
For all the children who think that they’ve got a disease
I wanna be cooler than tv
For all the kids that are wondering what they are going to be
We can be stronger than bombs
If you’re singing along and you know that you really believe
We can be richer than industry
As long as we know that there’s things that we don’t really need
We can speak louder than ignorance
Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet

On and on, and on, and on it goes
The world it just keeps spinning
Until i’m dizzy, time to breathe
So close my eyes and start again anew

Sometimes at night the evening noons follows after me
Waits for me there in the window beside my bed
And dad watches like a shadow of apathy
Cause fear is a weapon it keeps me from looking ahead
Until I whisper
Just as these blankets cover me
The future is meant to be
Nothing can stop it’s a fact
I look for heroes and my search for identity
And none of them seemed to be quite what they want me to think
They put together just like parts in a factory

They built personalities and sells them on tv
I go and meditate for days in my closet
To shut out these profits
Who show me the ways how I should be

On and on, and on, and on it goes
The world it just keeps spinning
Until i’m dizzy, time to breathe
So close my eyes and start again anew

If i’m afraid to catch a dream
I weave your baskets and i’ll float them down the river stream
Each one i weave with words i speak to carry love to your relief

I wanna be better than oxygen
So you can breathe when you’re drowning and weak in the knees
I wanna speak louder than Ritalin
For all the children who think that they’ve got a disease
I wanna be cooler than t.v.
For all the kids that are wondering what they are going to be
We can be stronger than bombs
If you’re singing along and you know that you really believe
We can be richer than industry
As long as we know that there’s things that we don’t really need
We can speak louder than ignorance
Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet

On and on, and on, and on it goes
The world it just keeps spinning
Until i’m dizzy, time to breathe
So close my eyes and start again anew

Willy Mason “Oxygen”

We have not come here to take prisoners,
But to surrender ever more deeply
To freedom and joy.

We have not come into this exquisite world
To hold ourselves hostage from love.

Run my dear,
From anything
That may not strengthen
Your precious budding wings.

Run like hell my dear,
From anyone likely
To put a sharp knife
Into the sacred, tender vision
Of your beautiful heart.

We have a duty to befriend
Those aspects of obedience
That stand outside of our house
And shout to our reason
“O please, O please,
Come out and play.”

For we have not come here to take prisoners
Or to confine our wondrous spirits,

But to experience ever and ever more deeply
Our divine courage, freedom and
Light!
-Hafiz
