Return to Simplicity

This song was created for Game of Bands round 28 : "Minimalism"

Lyrics:

Burned the IKEA catalog / I should have done this years ago
I'll spread the ashes on my lawn / I hope it lets the flowers grow
Threw my alarm clock away / I'll let the sunrise greet me
I'll take back the 9 to 5 / I sold off too cheaply

Pre-Chorus
No worries for tomorrow / No tears for what is gone, all gone
I'll tear down the barrier / That kept away the sun, the sun

Chorus
And what it means / A chance to be
Free as the breeze / that shakes the leaves
A chance to do / and not just dream
A return / to simplicity

Verse 2
The satellite dish on my roof / Is now the birdbath in my yard
I don't need five hundred channels / To look up and see the stars
No more ads for packaged dreams / Years wasted chasing money
The things they say don't grow on trees / Can never make me happy

Pre-Chorus
No worries for tomorrow / Today my life begins, begins
I'll tear down the barrier / That kept away the wind, the wind

Chorus
And what it means / A chance to be
Free as the breeze / that shakes the leaves
A chance to do / and not just dream
A return / to simplicity
[Exit]
