Odd Man Out

When does this dizzying
Contempletion cease?
Where does the mind go
To find some release?
All of my words
On deaf ears fell
If only I knew how to break this spell.


Odd Man Out
I think you said.
Is how you feel
Inside your head.
I see blessing
You see curse
Odd man out
Feels that much worse.

Verse 2:

It?s so easy to say the words
Tired old platitudes and verse.
Changing thought takes so much time.
Can?t just do it on a dime.


River flow
Let time
Connect the channels
Spilling brine
All you want to know
You do
Let the river
Flow to you.
