The Shaman of the Redwood

Gaia got you any way
As long you can feel the grass between your toes
How it goes, time will show
Hold it in until you choke…
Smoke wafting up to the sky
Take your shoes off and walk outside
Walk outside with me I tell the girl in my skin
come to center again
wrap your arms around the biggest tree
that you can see
Then take a beat and catch your breath
Nothing’s over when there is so much left
Nothing’s over, the end hasn’t been met
And there’s still another chance
In your hands
feel the wood and feel it good
Like the child in you could
Like a grown woman should
finally connect you say to her loudly and clear
To the girl living in your inner ear
Breathe in deep and say you’re whole
Smile into the sun so it knows
You’re completely whole
if there is a soul still in you it still glows
Fuck what shit circumstance might throw
Go blind from the light in your own eyes
Smoke kissing cloudless skies
You’re grateful even from far away
Don’t worry about your body or even the day
Let it fade baby, you say, let it fade
Let peace take you by surprise
Solitude can help you not compromise
Take a break and wait breathe and wait
Smoke filling your lungs and you sigh
Kiss goodbye to all of the lies
The ones you planted and the ones he grows
no one knows, recharge and let go
It doesn’t matter much any way if you stay
Gaia got you any way
As long you can feel the grass between your toes
How it goes, time will show
Hold it in until you choke…
