    Lyrics:

    I wanna be afraid
    I wanna be offended
    I wanna face my fears when they're presented
    I wanna be fully present when I'm attending
    I wanna make choices not just reacting
    Cause acting out has become quite tiring
    These emotions I keep hiring and firing
    My family must be tired of this little violin
    I violated my fair share of sin
    I sold some shaman
    Broke bread with bad men
    With strange codes of honour
    But we make choices from what's upon us
    There's some balance that I'm searching for
    And I found it in my consciousness when I was trying to build my core
    My spirit will run away
    If I don't cease the day
    I can feel it pushing me pushing me
    I have to go for a walk literally
    Feel the breeze have a talk and listen to me

    Chorus
    I bet you when I come through
    And see the sun that I'm greeted too
    It's a reminder that I'm not through
    And I have still got work to do

    Often my mood sways
    From full to dismayed
    I surf a small wave
    To ride at its crest
    Feels like a small space
    So I disengage
    I need to grow get some weight of this chest
    Bucket to bouquet
    Welcome a new day
    Write on an eclipse
    Let it enter through my right hip
    Spirit does a back flip
    Reason and wrap spliffs
    We rap ad libs
    I can hear your vision yo
    But we ain't asking permission
    We run up in the kitchen
    With a bag of road man
    And we want the belly
    I asked the universe and it told me clear
    Warrior spirit it got us
    Fear and love can't coexist so remember this
    In the face of opposition
    And remember they listening
    but some will understand
    Their antenna feels it
    Etcha sketch my future before they clear it. Show less
