Track 2 of Totem e.p. CD



Day job’s done and now I’m free,
Time to usher in possibility.
Slightly older, feeling spry,
Still some things that I’ll have to try.

No spoiler left to tell me no,
Only I to urge me go.
No blueprint drawn to steer the way,
No rulebook writ to aim the play.

So many people are so constrained,
Stay the path is so engrained.
Arc me through the swinging door,
Sweep me from the killing floor.

It’s often said, change is good.
All will cycle, that’s understood.
Nothing slows the march of time.
And, I’ve yet to yield my prime.
