Take it easy
Walk with a light step, baby
Catch a breezy
Live amongst life forms in your day
Marinate a good piece of beef
Understand the mind of a leaf
Swim around 'til the fish float out of the socket in your skull

Dive deeper
Corner all the fungus in your brain
Take it easy
Wanna live the life in vain
More you chew things, or leave them to rot
Woke up with a nose full of snot
Baked some muffins,
The tops burnt and I had to throw them away

Up this morning
Daylight sooner than I thought
The sun was shining
Plucked a flower from a star
Smelled good and it made me smile
So I took a run 'bout a quarter of a mile
Felt my lungs swell
So I got myself back home

Take it easy
Walk with a light step, baby
Catch a breezy
Live amongst life forms in your days
Marinate a good piece of beef
Understand the mind of a leaf
Swim around 'til the fish float out of the socket in your skull

    General CommentThis song's so spacey and happy, the music and lyrics fitting together so nicely. I reckon it's just about taking life easy, appreciating the small things (understand the mind of a leaf), and living life to the fullest (swim around till the fish float out of the socket in your skull)

    Lyric CorrectionThe line should be:

    The sun was shining
    Plucked a flower from the store

    General CommentNo, the line should be "plucked a flower from a stalk", doesn't that make more sense? Also, it's "up this morning a lot sooner than I thought", not daylight. Aside from that there's a couple articles and prepositions missing, but nothing big. And it's "man I made a good piece of beef", which is important because it keeps the meter of the song, especially if you want to sing and play it.

    I think you're right, though. It's about taking it easy and appreciating the little things of every day life. This song is incredible. I think I'm in love with the little melody Gener sings between verses.
