- Learn to Be Still

This is a really new song
We made it up an hour ago
The third verses are a kind of multiple choice kind of thing
And I probably won't remember any of 'em
Just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head
You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will
Learn to be still
We're like sheep without a shepherd
Don't know how to be alone
So we wander 'round this desert
Wind up following the wrong Gods home
The flock cries out for another
They keep answering that bell
One more starry eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell
Learn to be still
Learn to be still
Now the flowers in your garden
They don't smell so sweet so sweet
Maybe you've forgotten
Heaven lying at your feet
Ay, yeah yeah
So many contradictions
In all these messages we send
Keep asking
How do I get out of here?
Where do I fit in?
Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
Someday you will
Learn to be still
Learn to be still
Just keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin'
M-m-m-m... m-m-m
