Poetry Friday: Sail On by The Good Mad

Current Mood: inspired
Current Song: Sail On by The Good Mad

A soul looking outside itself for the source
To find what cannot be defined, delivered, or forced
Perception and projection make up every point of view

These days it seems like everyone is bidding on love
But it's not up for sale, a concept new to some
I like to share my soul with many, I don't save it just for one

Now what to do with all that freedom hitting at once?
You can exercise your will to call the actor's bluff
You're just playing a part until your time is up

- lyrics from Sail On by The Good Mad

This is one of my favorite songs by The Good Mad. I also really love In the Grey and Falling Asleep (Shine Don't Shadow). I posted lyrics from Low during another Poetry Friday.

I hope you like the band's sound as much as I do!

Really enjoyed getting to know the Good Mad. Thanks very much! As poetry, the lyrics have an interesting meter.
