Balcony Beach



Chorus: mooo baby / we can make it happen/ make it through baby / all we
Need to do is begin rejuvenating / keep it all in focus and pursue it
Faithfully / do it patiently / just the way the sea's been this evening / i
Came out at eight was leaning on the railing / i kept hearing the waves
Crashin' beneath me / back and forth / they just rephrased what they were
Saying / over and over doing that repeatedly / they'd crash and come back
/ its just a constant thing / every time they'd back out to sea / its like
They'd draw just a little more out of me / a lot of images and feelings /
Just a limitless release / and i began to reminisce freely / it was a
Cinema / featuring me and a cast of emotions / that demanded my attention
Immediately / i had previously put them on hold / on the back burner since
Earlier / i didn't want to deal with it / at that time i felt like other
Things were pertinent / now i see its permanent unless i get real with it /
And it ain't that i don't love to tussle / especially mentally / 'cause i
Generally do win / might not win at first, but definitely eventually /
'cause i ain't never not been a shoe-in since birth / but now, this is
Special though / see, this is beyond my threshold / i'm accustomed to just
A conventional struggle / with two opponents / only here the tussle's
Between you and the truth / so ultimately i'm gonna lose / actually i gain
Though / i gotta be honest with myself, or else / i impede my personal
Progress / i think it's better to be depressed for a minute / admit it,
And get re-oriented / instead of being a bitter cynic isn't it? / chorus /
I'm getting older / everybody around me acts all sober / lookin' poker
Faced / i started losing hair at the corners / matter-of-fact, i looked up
Top / that whole border's jacked / nobody's gonna chauffeur me anymore /
Whatever this is, we all go through it i guess / it's just awkward / i'm
Not a hundred percent comfortable with / the rate that everything's
Developing at / it's just a little overwhelming at times / i'm dealing with
Hella shit to process / it's new data daily / there's really no preparing
For this thing / or, maybe it's mainly just me acting strangely / just me
Facing the challenge / i doubt it though / 'cause i met thousands of people
/ seen something similar in their faces / it's like the outlook is changing
/ i think it's called bein' a man in the making / it's burnt, i like
Pralines now / long walks solo, where i can sort my thoughts out / just
What i've been taught to date / it doesn't gel well with the way that i've
Been feeling these days / that's coming from a ton of angles, hella places
/ i'm really not trying to make a political statement / but just in terms
Of internally inside/ i'm at an interval in life where it's a turbulent
Time / and i could pretend that it's all good / and that i shouldn't put so
Much on it / let it sit and just settle itself / stop acting all sobby and
Sentimental / besides everything's perfectly fine / but here i am on this
Balcony / with my thoughts just traveling randomly on some tangent
And in the back of my mind / i keep hearing this lady / her voice is
Beautiful, she keeps saying / mooo baby / we can make it happen/ make it
Through baby / all we need to do is begin rejuvenating / keep it all in
Focus and pursue it faithfully / do it patiently
