Mind Over Matter


Mind over matter.
Keeps a face from looking sadder.
And that joy that hasn't come,
For one...
Becomes fair game.

Mind over matter.
Keeps a face from looking sadder.
And that joy that hasn't come,
For one...
Becomes fair game.

Drip to drop,
Tears fall.
They wont stop,
At all.
Until that faucet's turned off!
To prove one's life is not a loss.

Drip to drop,
Tears fall.
They wont stop,
At all.
Until that faucet's turned off!
To prove one's life is not a loss.

Mind over matter.
Keeps a face from looking sadder.
And that joy that hasn't come,
For one...
Becomes fair game.

Drip to drop,
Tears fall.
Mind over matter.
Keeps a face from looking sadder.

They wont stop,
At all.
And that joy that hasn't come,
For one...
Becomes fair game.

Ooohhh...
Drip to drop,
Tears fall.
They wont stop,
At all.
Until that faucet's turned off!
To prove one's life is not a loss.

Drip to drop,
Turn that faucet off.
You life's not a total loss.
Right now prove that you're the boss.
Stop those tears,
And stop the cause!

Mind over matter.
Mind over matter.
Mind over matter.
Right now prove that you're the boss.
Stop those tears,
And stop the cause!

Mind over matter.
Mind over matter.
Mind over matter.
Right now prove that you're the boss.
Stop those tears,
And stop the cause!

Mind over matter.
Keeps a face from looking sadder.
And that joy that hasn't come,
For one...
Becomes fair game.

Drip to drop,
Turn that faucet off.
You life's not a total loss.
Right now prove that you're the boss.
Stop those tears,
And stop the cause!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
