Choose your fuel
Feed your mind
Start the engine
Turn it over
Let it tick
Grab the stick
Shift it quick
Returning soldier

Heed the whispers
In your slipstream
Chase the very most succinct dream
Taste the berries of persuasion
Place a cherry on the whipped cream
Make merry of the heavy freight
That weighs down on unsteady gait
Lengthy wait aside
Incline to make not break your stride
For there are many ways
To illustrate arise
Just as many
To exhilarate the skies

Choose your fuel
Feed your mind
Start the engine
Turn it over
Let it tick
Grab the stick
Shift it quick
Returning soldier
.
Nought to sixty
Through all fifty
States of mind
For redefining
Choose your fuel
Fire the pistons
Rewire systems
Reignite them

Seize the ties that bind
Release them
Free your mind
Seek dreams and weave them
Darn them into quilts
Then spend your days and waking nights beneath them
Better yet
With deft
Achieve them
Do your best
To dress fresh season
Little deaths aside
Confide of uncontested breaths
And breathe them
Many ways to brave uneven grounds
Just as many
For believers to be found

Choose your fuel
Feed your mind
Start the engine
Turn it over
Let it tick
Grab the stick
Shift it quick
Returning soldier
.
Nought to sixty
Through all fifty
States of mind
For redefining
Choose your fuel
Fire the pistons
Rewire systems
Reignite them
.
Burning nitrous
Turn a crisis
Into words
Applying herbs and spices
Choose your fuel
Be kind
Not cruel
Unspool to widen
Full artistic licence
Maybe those too cool for school
Can still find timely cause to be enlightened
Do so
And our every sense be heightened

Choose your fuel
Feed your mind
Start the engine
Turn it over
Let it tick
Grab the stick
Shift it quick
Returning soldier
.
Nought to sixty
Through all fifty
States of mind
For redefining
Choose your fuel
Fire the pistons
Rewire systems
Reignite them
