You say you’re so inspired but they know you’re wired
First you’re hired then you’re fired
Ignoring the truth as it’s transpired
Hey, maybe you’re just too tired,
Maybe you‘re transfixed
You heard the alarm sound don’t try and say you were unwarned
The only cyclone you see tho is the one you’re spinning in your own mind
Still it seems the questions dangle alongside you unanswered
Eyes blood-red, rage blurring vision enough to fake being blind
Isn’t it easier when we work things out as a team
If you could just take the time to lend a hand, even to just think about a few people other than you
When you put others first you may be amazed at the things a friendship can do
If you don’t like my blueprints I should remind you it’s possible that what you see now may be ugly
Really all you need to do is change your point of view
Like that long debated question: half empty or half full?
Tell me; how do you see your cup?
Still bitter, still angry maybe a little confused?
Try not to decide too fast
When considering the future try not to focus too acutely on the past.
Does the rain of yesterday determine tomorrow’s forecast?
You can decide what comes next, it’s not all up to fate
Believe me I’ve been there, yes I can relate
There were many times I wouldn’t even step near the plate
Instead I chose to start over, clean slate
Pushed away the frustration of the loss
Started working to gain ground, stopped worrying so much about the cost
Got back in the game, like a boss!
Not planning on playing for keeps but sure, I’ll give that ball a toss
Negativity is nonsense,
A smile can make a world of difference
Suddenly your cares are a million miles away and you didn’t even notice the distance
Turning around to realize a near perfect existence
All it took was a different angle and a touch of persistence
Make yourself happy tho, that you should always do, keep in mind my words are just for instance
