True Contemplation

As I sit watching, wandering, and waiting in this cold, weaping world

I live in contempt because of it

So here I sit

In the dark like a pit

This is how I concentrate and make my vibe great

I overslept so I got there late

I'm living in the now

This is a blast from the past

Ready for anything like a soldier

I'm in the heat, but it keeps getting colder

They try to make me leave, but I won't move like a boulder

I tried to get in touch with my soft side and I got a cold shoulder
