Have you heard about the mice
They’re makin love they’re growin up
They made it back to circle us
Have you heard about the snake
He figured that’d he’d shed his skin
Slide away again, begin

It’s easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There’s no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay

Do you think you look like hell
It’s hard to hug you from a shell
Give it up for the snail
It’s not easy for the bees
They pack a knife to the job
They try to keep from getting old

It’s easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There’s no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay

The human heart is there to crush
Father time looks over us
You’ll miss it all if you rush
Did you listen to the dust
It waits around without a sound
to gather us so listen up

It’s easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There’s no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay

    General Commenti can't believe no one has commented to this song yet. this song is the closest thing to original blind melon tunes that you can get to. no one will ever replace shannon, but travis does a pretty respectable job. what's great about this song is the simplictiy of life; just enjoy it. don't sweat the small shit and take time to apprectiate what's around you and what you got. the lyrics are simple and don't have to be looked into and dissected too much. buy this album, it really is worth it
