Lyric of the Month: April 2010

by Nic Olson

I am alive, I am here I am now. I acknowlege the fact of my life.
I am alive breathing walking and smiling, acknowledge the fact of my life.
There’s a big big world out there, time that I stepped in ’cause I’m getting tired of pretending that I don’t really give a shit.
There was guilt and shame, there was fear and hate but now it’s finally time to appreciate the perfection of all life, all the times and places and time I’d waste.
I learned the hard way and ever since when I look forward or back I just gotta laugh ’cause it hit like a ton of bricks.
I laid down on the ground and I looked around and I saw a miracle I appreciate the simple beauty of the world it came to me like a bullet to the heart but it was there in front of me all along so obvious the only meaning of life is life itself.
I’m not controlled by anybody else, I must get out of my way, get out of my own way.
