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!
