lyrics

Aware
© Jason Paul Johnston 2006

Yes, I’m aware of people
I’ve read about them in detail
I’ve seen them laugh. I have heard them weeping.
And If I live a little longer, might even meet them.

Are we awake? Or are we sleeping?
My eyes are open, and open season
To everything, I believe in everything
But to dream is easy, it’s breathing that makes me queasy

Sometimes I park in the walkway
just to make them flood in my direction…
I catch their glares with my stare
as my insolence has just formed a connection….

They’re all around, they’re walking by me
They can’t sneak through – my mind is grabbing
They look away and my eyes they follow
My x-ray vision sees them, and they’re hollow

The light turns green, the hand flashes
The humans stop, the last man dashes
The cars move in and the people scatter
They’re all off to find some peace and way to matter
They’re all off to find peace and some way to matter
