The Middle Way

from by Martial



Choose a color
Pick a theme
Things are never what they seem
You can't have yellow without green
Everything is everything
The one light behind shines the scene
And the truth is the joints
That space between two points

But if the world keeps spinning round
Before I get sick, I'm getting down

A boat can’t spend most of it’s ride
Leaned too far to either side
It’s balance comes from left and right
Outer edges sprout inside
The beaming light is blinding bright
And the center stays unknown
Though it’s anywhere you go

Just sit hand in hand
As still as you can

And if the world keeps spinning round
Then where would I find solid ground?
I can be silence and peace
And stop the world spinning beneath me

I just can’t stand life on steady feet
I need the ground pulled out under me
Start my endless free-falling

Listen to you breathe
Be all you can be
