So I'm told
As the story goes
I unfold to a boy who's aware
Of a rocking chair
That put him fast asleep
So he dreams of amazing things
So unseen
Like a boy who's loved
By everyone including me
Watch him dream
Exhaling
Mayhem is beautiful

Birds fly and they die
And I with you wonder why
Wonder where
Truth be told
I don't care mayhem is beautiful
Mayhem is beautiful

City of dreams
And dreamers
How could all this occur?
Whats it for?
Nothing more
Than to up hoard the commands of the gods
Who are not there
But truly scare
The mass that we make of us
Why do I cuss?
Well it's because
I've grown up to speak (.. ?) the man
When you can
Mayhem is beautiful
Mayhem is beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful
Mayhem is beautiful
So beautiful

    General CommentI think instead of "up hoard" it's actually "abhor"...and the part with the question mark I believe is "struck," but I'm not sure either. It is a beautiful song.

    General CommentShould be:
    "Than to abhor the commands of the gods"
    "I've grown up to speak up/obstruct the man" -- being a play on the words speak up and obstruct

    Such a beautiful song with meaningful lyrics. Simple and elegant, Bushwalla really knows how to write, and Dawn Mitschele sings beautifully on this track.
