Song Description

A song for inspiration to move though challenges and setbacks.

Story Behind the Song

Written summer of 2000 in Las Cruces and Taos, NM, a touchstone to ward off the maladies of diabetes. Life is a miracle, and whoever said a miracle is easy! I attempt here an ode to the teaching of The Great Middle Way and it's fruit, Equilibrium. "The Flow" refers to the primary Universal force, entropy. Dedicated to my diabetes buddy, Kate Doyle and her handsome husband, Mike Doyle, and to Neil Young. Leads by Upton Ethelbah and Peter McConnell.

Lyrics

Try to be calm, I tried to be cool, I tried to seem like I'd been to school.
Aim for the middle, go high and low. Try to keep tight, but it's out of control.
Oh no, I got too high, give me a little shot, and I'll be fine.
Oh no, I got too low, give me a little sugar and watch me go.
Hey Joe, Don't let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.
Dealing with the real, while we're spinning on a wheel, and don't let go.
Don't let go o o o...

Run, jump, flee from your heart, what you hide, I seek blind in the dark.
Like the world, we spin around, what you hide, I seek, it can be found.
I pride myself as a steady man, however it goes, well that's the plan.
I pride myself with a steady hand, but it's going out of control again.

Oh no, it's out of control, my heart's on fire like a volcano.
Oh no, it's out of control, my head's spinning 'round like a tornado.
Hey Joe, Don't let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.
Dealing with the real, while we're spinning on a wheel, and don't let go.
Don't let go o o o...

Oh no, it's out of control, my heart's on fire like a volcano.
Oh no, it's out of control, my head's spinning 'round like a tornado.
Hey Joe, don't let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.
Dealing with the real, while we're spinning on a wheel, and don't let go.
Don't let go o o o...
