Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around, choose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all your touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is down
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

    My InterpretationBreathe in the air, be in the moment.
    Listen to yourself and not society, we are all the same and need to care for each other.
    Walk away from the negativity and leave it behind you, but take the good with you.
    Take note of everything that surrounds you, consider all possibilities and make your own choices.
    We live on forever, within everything.
    Life is a learning journey that needs to be experienced.
    Be aware of yourself, know yourself.
    'hear no evil, see no evil speak no evil'.
    Distraction buries you and make you forget. You loose sight.
    We base happiness on success and social status but when you finally achieve this, there is no end because you have to keep it up.
    We can live on and keep growing.
    But only if we takedestruct it easy, let ourselves be, go with it and soak it all in.
    Balancing mind, body and soul.
    Or inevitable we self.
