Young Man, Old Spirit

You are young but not unwise, you've been suppressed but not surprised
at the world and how its not the only one.
People come and go, but if you're putting on a show
Tell the cast and all the actors when your done.

Tell me if you'd like to learn, and better yet if you're concerned
With the people you surround yourself with now
Are they there to help you thrive? Do they care if you're alive
How much killing of your soul will you allow?

And dont see me as just another, feeble attempt to try to smother
You with graceful teaching so to please your mind.
That is not my first intention, so again I'll have to mention
That my selfish way of thinking's left behind

I am one with everything, not like everything for one
I promise once you feel it you will know.
Exactly where you are, and if your venture is so far
Why's it take so long for you to ****ing go???
