A Solid Foundation - “Rafts & Ropes”
We all are rafts and I guess we can’t change that part.
But maybe we can find some ropes to connect ourselves
so we don’t all drift apart.
And I like to hope that maybe well see enough ropes and rafts that wanna stick around. We can all be connected out on the sea and start up our own little raft town.
And let’s not worry about wind and waves they’re both something we can bear, because there’s strength in numbers and waves would be lucky to come in pairs. As for the wind, well it can blow us wherever
As long as we keep a keen on these ropes we’re together.
WE ALL ARE RAFTS
and our words can make ropes
So let’s tie off to our hearts and keep this town afloat
and float off.
Lets seek refuge in more rafts and the people they are
We can grow stronger and
Find new places to go
We can get smarter
and think up ways
to make sails and nets
Not just ropes,
because drifting is fine
it keeps us alive
but i think we’d all rather EXPERIENCE Life
not just float.
And There safety in nets
Like there’s safety in numbers
As we grow we can spread out
And we can all be each others
we all are something
And that’s nothing new.
But I hold in my heart that I and all of you
can be more than just billions of wooden islands drifting alone in infinite blue.
WE ALL ARE SINKING
AND WE HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS
BUT IT’S NOT TO LATE TO CHANGE THAT IF WE CAN MOVE PAST OUR FEAR
WE ALL ARE DROWNING RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER
WHEN OUR SURFACE AREA TOGETHER COULD OVERCOME THE WEIGHT ON OUR SHOULDERS.
If you carry mine then
I’ll carry yours
We can move any direction we want as long as it’s forward.
Because humanity has hope
If we are all just rafts and rope
Humanity has oceans of hope
If all we are is just rafts and rope.
