As I sit and think about what to say
My hands ready to speak out on behalf of my mind
I settle down on the chair
And try to let the words flow
A chain reaction of thought
Still locked up inside my head.
And as I sat wondering just what was on my mind
Adjusting myself on the hard wooden chair
I realized music was taking over my head
Crushing out all and anything I might have wanted to say
Panic starts to rise into my brain and flow
This would be easy is what I originally thought.
I rise with crescendos that reach up and seep into my head
I crash with the soft musical flow
The waves of composition eradicate any thought
I still cannot find comfort on the hard wooden chair
But still I would like to have something to say
Even if obliterated is the new adjective to describe my mind.
As I sat on my hard wooden chair
I began to wonder once more if there was anything left of my mind
And if there was anything I wanted to say
If there was anything left to pick out of my head
I hoped there was something left of thought
So that it might be squeezed out to flow.
Even though I figured some logic might want to have a say
As to what I had done to my mind
Maybe I just needed to cool my head
But still what eluded me was a single thought
So I settled back into my hard wooden chair.
I shut off the music so I could hear a little thought
Weakly buzzing around in the inside of my head
And when I did, a nagging bit of sense came out to flow
And I couldn’t think of what to say
Because I just didn’t have a mind.
And when again I dug through my head and into my mind
And settled into my hard wooden chair and let it flow
I found that there was no thought and that I had nothing to say.
