Listen to Hella Good by No Doubt

In favour of emergent trees
That twist the breeze and turn the leaves
Permissive of refurbished gleam
Our eyes wide open learn to dream
.
Close your eyes
Forget your name
The tears that stain your window pane
.
The fear that grips your brazen heart
The years of pain that frame your art
.
Forgo the grief beneath the veil
And breathe belief into the mast
.
Set sail across uncharted seas
To Eden
Seen
At last
.

(Release)
Release the burden
Certain to incur eclipse
And lift the curtain
.
Take a bow
Affix the crown
Attune your frown
To swift reversion
.
Close your eyes
Forget your place
For time and space elate diversion
Even when it feels that not a soul can see you hurting
Blindness unreservedly builds faith
.
To Eden

Fall with grace
Through sprawl of maze
With ordinance of brave
Ride the stallion
Take the reins
And guide it to a native place
Pastures of ungated graze
Cascading light
Awaken shade
Revive an ancient serenade
Run naked through the everglades
.
Close your eyes
Forget your name
The tears that stain your window pane
The fear that grips your brazen heart
The years of pain that frame your art
Forgo the grief beneath the veil
And breathe belief into the mast
Set sail across uncharted seas
To Eden
Seen
At last
.
Bleed when required
To appease the heaped pyre
In the heat of its fire
Smile politely
As lips become ashen
Impassion your stride
Ride the rapturous tides of what might be
Alight be the flame
In the shade of thine eyes
See this opulent blaze dine divinely
.

Slow heel to toe
In repose of even flow
Feel the sand between your toes
As you proceed
Caress each blessèd streamlet
Learn the sequence of the seas
For they only pose one secret left to keep
Wade deep
In shallow waters
As their course is keenly altered
To the hallowed halls of aeons in reprise
Take a box of crayons
Every shade and hue afforded
And go paint that lost Picasso
In the skies
.
Close your eyes
Forget your name
Return to whence you came
A happy place
Enraptured
Safe
Where tears fall down
As gentle rain
Saddle steed
And straddle height of undivided mast
Set sail across unceasing seas
To Eden
Seen
At last
.
