As the branches bend, so I bend for you
Pulling you from your sullen view
Looking down into your phone, face sallow and drawn from what you see
Death and decay fills your mind as the news reports more morbid finds
When will you take the hand I offer
Pull you from the dour and dull future
If you keep going like this you'll end up in a stupor
Don't think so hard or try to hide or bring yourself to anger
These are not the things that will bring the peace you hunger
The WAY will bring you solace and also bring you sense
You'll never want to stray from which you came whence.
