About…

This song aims to capture the harmonious and easygoing qualities of Type Nine with just a hint of sloth and a dash of self-forgetting on the side. It expresses the difficulty experienced when we believe we need to blend in order to belong. This song highlights the defence mechanism of ‘narcotisation’ – numbing out to anything that may cause disturbance or discomfort attempting to avoid conflict. The chorus takes us to the relief experienced when we realise love is here and now for all to participate in equally and that we all belong. It points to unconditional love and ultimately, right action, as gateways to presence. More about Type Nine…

Lyrics

Peace at any price, I say

Let’s not fight, I just want to stay

You can choose, I don't really mind

But somehow I feel I've gone too far this time

This doesn't feel calm, let's all take a breath

And I might just go where it’s peaceful and rest

It's there I find I can't be put out

I'll numb out here, and comfort won’t be in doubt

 

I’ll blend in and not rock the boat

Don’t want to decide don’t ask me to say no

I’ll hold back my anger maintain our peace

If I avoid, I hope this problem will cease

I’d rather belong than say what I think

If we have a conflict my poor heart will sink

I’ll think later what I want to say

Let’s put this off ‘til another day

Instrumental

 

Now I begin to pick up the  pace

Sense my own power and know my own tastes

Take ownership of my path on this earth

Boundaries I keep, what I want comes first

So help me to grow and help me to say ‘no’                                  

Then my own mind I can fully know

Watch my emergence with wonder and awe

I can make a difference, I’ll show up at my own door

 

When I am willing to face

That love is here in this time and place

Separation I no longer fear

We all belong

I remember myself

I am here

When I am willing to face

That love is here in this time and place

Separation I no longer fear

I know we all belong

I remember myself

I am Here

I AM!
