The river rescue's over-worked.
One a week since money dried.

Bodies to find in the Boyne,
Low bridges hide the signs.
If the river dried who would we find
on the bed, who's escaped time?
To the dead, thoughts go and linger.
Say goodbye in our minds.

Frail, frayed and frowning,
I'll crawl in to my mind.
Brain's hurt and empty.
Wait till the days unwind.
Wait, wait, wait.

From the bleakest days
You can find a way
Back to yourself.

I don't wanna be my enemy,
I can change my reality.

Free now from the mind,
Solace free to find.

I am complex animal,
with mammalian dreams and a mammal heart.
I am a human animal:
a wound up spring in a suit of skin.
Tear thru the surface image,
Under epidermis nerves and tendons shake.
No escape from the world that shapes us,
Spit back swallowed feelings in a healing rage.

You don't wanna be your enemy,
You can change your reality.

Free now from the mind,
Solace free to find.

From the bleakest days,
You can find a way….
