Don’t Face It

Don’t face it.
Kick the can down the road.
Some can’t take it
The weight of the heavy load.

And who could take it?
Really who’s prepared?
Who’s broken through
To get themselves there?

We’re just waking up
It’s never before
We’ve had even one minute
To open this door.

This door to the cell we
Keep locked so tightly
We can’t even see
How mighty are we

With such force and such pressure
We press it on down
We avoid all the feelings
We think bring us down
And that’s not a recipe
To come around
And see love and see peace
In us they abound.

No we don’t face it
And instead
We pretend and don’t realize
We might be better off dead
In fact that thought revolts us
And what an offense
To imagine that WE
Will one day be dead.

That’s not true
That can never be
Obviously you
Have never met me.

I won’t die, not ever
You’ll surely see
I’ll pretend till I’m dead
That really I’m free.

Don’t face it.
Don’t face it.
Shake in fear.
Hide yourself away.
Bide your time till you die.

Not me.
