1. Thinkin

From the recording music tracks


Thinkin bout a new year; looking back at the last
The longer I keep breathin, the faster they pass
Thinkin’ ‘bout dreamin’, dreamin’ ‘bout sleep
I confess, I ain’t thinkin’ too deep

All of this thinkin’ has got an ache in my head
2 in the morning/I should be getting to bed
But I’m thinking instead

Thinkin’ ‘bout heaven; thinkin’ ‘bout God
Like some disciple, who might be thinkin’ too hard
About the sick and the dying ; the weak and deprived
Or maybe I’m just thinkin’ bout staying alive

Thinkin’ ‘bout honor; a living trust
Having no fear of returning to dust

I’m thinkin’ ‘bout family and unconditional love
And I’m thinkin’ ‘bout all the things I’m not thinkin’ of

All of this thinkin’ seems to get me nowhere
‘cept into this vacuum, so well prepared,
But still gasping for air

I’m thinkin’ bout people that I used know
Where did they come from; where did they go
Friends and companions, I won’t soon forget
Where would I be today had we never met

All of this thinkin’ has got my world in a haze
Will it all seem, tomorrow, a meaningless phase

Thinkin’ ‘bout music, thinkin’ ‘bout food
I’m thinkin’ how do I get myself out of this mood

I went to the doctor. I said “doctor, help me please
All of this thinkin’ feels like a disease”

He found no physical ailment, He said, I’m not afflicted as such
He said, “I’m just thinkin’ that you’re just thinkin’ too much”
