I’m learning to slow down
Take it easy, respond, don’t react
Take a moment to contemplate
Whether to watch or attack
Look at the big picture
Choose just the right words to say
Consider it’s best some times
To live to fight another day

That’s what happens when you live life behind the beat
That’s what happens when you live life behind the beat
If you try, you will see
Things look different behind the beat

A change of perspective
Isn’t the worst thing you could do
You might come to realize
It’s a better approach for you
Not every problem
Requires you to set the town ablaze
Just take half a breath
And watch what happens, you’ll be amazed

It feels like mental trickery
At least it does to me
But this thing
Seems to be working for me

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
