lyrics

We complain all of the time
For example I'll quote an anon. sheet
"I cried because I had no shoes
Until I saw a man who had no feet"
It's about time we leave our problems at the door or swept under the rug
Or prepare to stare them in the eye
Wide open, not all buggy bugged
I try to find these principles
Pretty standard to follow
Keep my mind airing out
Make it solid not hollow
Don't find yourself drooling over someone else's dinner
Remember that everyone you meet is holding an invisible mirror
I always visualize 'there' is a better place
I should be living 'here' enjoying present pace
I've got to take time to stop and pat the neighbors cat
...And lap up any opportunity that I might get
It's about time for a change to start a revolution
It's medicine time without the billings and prescriptions
I'll do what I can even if I hit the finish line with an asthma attack under the sun
As long as I feel it is wind-blowing-through-your-hair type of fun
Doing this double Dutch thing juggling all of my time all the same
I have come to fill this bucket to a sympathies
Bucket full of change
It may all seem picture perfect
But I have been caught hanging from the ceiling
And after I'll get through all of it, I'll go back to talking about life as if it isn't happening!
I stub my toe, stumble and slip
In realization, I found a rock with a dinosaur footprint
In the middle of my badlands
And I felt like the Grandfather of the buffalo
