About…

This song aims to capture the analytical and observing qualities of Type Five with just a hint of stinginess and a dash of avarice on the side. It expresses the difficulty experienced when we see the world as demanding too much and giving too little. This song highlights the defence mechanism of ‘isolation’ – withdrawing to the inner world of thoughts to protect ourselves from being drained of all resources in an attempt to avoid emptiness. The chorus takes us to the relief experienced when we realise that participation in the world can lead us to feel energised and to make a meaningful contribution. It points to non-attachment and ultimately, generosity, as gateways to presence. More about Type Five…

Lyrics

Alone in my head

Ideas are safe ‘n’ sound

Don’t ask  much of me

There’s not enough to go round

 

I’ll take time to myself

Discover something new

Observe from over here

A safe distance from you…but…

 

Breaking the barriers down

With my feet touchin’ the ground

I begin to feel

My hidden side revealed

I go with the flow

Relinquish the need to know

Cos’ life is moving in harmony here

And the infinite beauty around me is clear

 

Wanna share what I know

But it’s not rational out there

This world is draining me

The empty feeling’s hard to bear….but

 CHORUS

 

I know there’s enough  for everyone

So I won’t just walk, I will run…and…

 

Break the barriers down

With my feet touchin’ the ground

I begin to feel

My hidden side revealed

I go with the flow

Relinquish the need to know

Cos’ life is moving in harmony here

And the infinite beauty around me is clear
