Mind Over Matter

lyrics

Strive to
See past the skies with untried eyes,
You take in the grace we undermine.
Open up to this world that's in front of you.

So don't just follow suit,
Cause it's your undoing now.
Take what you have,
That makes your being.

(So put your mind over it)

Now that you've dragged me in (Dragged me in!),
You forgot to tell me how to swim.
I'll pull you down,
Tell you how to drown your,
Isolated, introverted, closed mind
Locked so you won't know,
That I'll turn you around,
Run this blessed vessel aground.

Who am I,
To decide,
A feeling that can't be so feared so ill defined?
A better way, so to say,
Tell them to keep it from forming in this mind.

So hide!
So hide!

It's so weak of you to compare,
Spinning a lie, pretending you're up there.
People alike propelling us nowhere,
Delving through, an ending truth
About the world that's in front of you.

Now that you've seen past the skies
You'll see what's in front of you
Right in front of you
Why couldn't we just open our eyes?

(Now you put your mind over it)

Now that you've dragged me in (Dragged me in!),
You forgot to tell me how to swim.
I'll pull you down,
Tell you how to drown your,
Isolated, introverted, closed and locked
So you won't know,
That i'll turn you around.

about

Akord Glasgow, UK

Imagine Tool and Karnivool locked together in the sweet embrace of a musical orgy; a passion filled session with some light sweet jazz to set the mood. Incubus loiter in the room to tag in every so often and Biffy Clyro are there to serve the refreshments.

That's Akord.
