OPEN YOUR MIND

Authenticity, held with a fiery spark of insanity
Gives life to ideas with a twist of unexpected reality

The need to feel accepted and understood
Alive inside all of us, but self cultivated with falsehood

Fed to us from the moment we were born
What you should be, implanted like a thorn

I don`t need to be what you think I am
I need to be everything not yet defined by a man

We all need to rise up and forget what we know
About beauty, love, earth, people, the ego…

Unknown time and space…open mind, open heart
It`s time to come together, not drive apart

We limit people with what we think they should do
Not seeing deeper, allowing them to define their who

Let`s consider that life is an evolution for all
There is nothing we can do, say or feel that`s small

The impact of even a simple, acknowledging glance
Is the hope someone needs to give life another chance

Power, endorsed by positive or negative is still power
When you call it anything else, a flower is still a flower

If you were told a flower was a bird
Would you believe what you heard?

Depending on who told you, would you change your mind?
If so, are there more undiscovered "truths" to find?

Denial, fear, closed mindedness… so widespread today
Why are we not open to any other way?

If you believe, or even if refuse to see
"It" is still there, the underlying reality

We all impact each other, as a community, as an earth
That`s why it`s time to cleans the world, a new birth!

Together we can do absolutely anything, if we believe
Alone we are limited to what we can achieve

Spin, turn, open, hold… sing, draw, write, dance
Open your mind, give earth, our children, another chance

Limitless possibilities, alive in every living thing
Starting right now, it`s not what you take, it`s what you bring

Crazy is only "crazy" if someone sees it that way
Good, time to be crazy, today is your day!

Share, ask, love…give
Stand up for each other, learn to really live

There`s a change in the air and we all play a role
It`s going to take all of us to renew and become whole

Pray, eat, thank… share
A NEW EARTH will be born when we ALL really care

This is my way of doing my part
It`s not much yet, but it`s a start

Insanity, a label we all hold sometimes
Remember, a word is just a word: OPEN YOUR MIND
