lyrics

I’m comin’ alive, comin’ online, comin’ in and outside.
I see the divine, I saw it last night, saw it behind my eyes.
Walls were falling two by two. Bricks were passing underneath my shoes.
Then a voice so soft and subtle said, “build a road from rubble.”

And I’m lookin’ ahead, scratchin’ my head, feeling awfully fine.
I see no divide, I see the divine, I’d see it even if I were blind.
The rain it falls with wet applause, the audience appreciates their cause.
Then a voice so soft and subtle said, “leap into the puddle.”

Why am I keeping time?
Who knew it’s not on the line?
It’s a whirlpool, a Taurus turbine,
A florist of light, the circle that winds.

And I’m comin’ alive, comin’ online, comin’ in and outside.
I see the divine, I saw it this mornin’, the moment I opened my eyes.
I’m breathin’ the air, lookin’ at the sky, mother. You’re all around me, shine mother.
I’m readin’ the signs, turnin’ up my mind, mother. I hear your voice inside, mother.

You’re the flow inside a vine, and I’m a grape that translates you to wine.
Oh, your voice is soft and subtle. You say, “life’s an endless puzzle,
And if you face some trouble, don’t let your soul get muddled.”
