Convictions

Convictions susan Q. miller © 2011 Song Lyrics Maybe our convictions are convictions after all, They lock us in a prison in our minds. They keep us from living in this moment. We’re out of synchronicity---out of present time. Convicted by convictions, we are prisoners, prisoners. Living in the past we will never be free Until we breakout, until we break out, Open up and live our lives today. I'm not looking for a pot of gold At the end of some long road. Treasures wait around each bend, we can uncover them. There is no end to the wealth to be discovered When we break out, break out of our delusions, Break out, break out of all our past conclusions. Then we can be free, yes we can be free to live today, today Let’s live for today. Maybe our convictions are convictions after all. They lock us in a prison in our minds. Each of us are wardens and we hold the key. There is no one else who can set the prisoner free. So if we breakout, if we’re willing to breakout Of past conclusions, our delusions, Then we can be free Free to live today Free to find a better way No time to waste on blame. It’s time to break out. We’ve got to break out.
