caught up lyrics – hot water music

how do we get back
away from the grind that gives no slack
to the frames
the ones we filtered first
which widened our eyes through their colors shapes and designs
with everything
so brand new and everthing
so pure and true
when saving the world could be done in a day
with a cape and an imagination
ready to play on our hands
and knees we crawled and watched
as our elders walked we soaked up all we could
clung to what we knew was good
and glazed
at what unfolded before our face
to find out
we’d forget it all
by being caught up in a race that isn’t for fun at all
with hands frustrated to do instead of willing to try
living by the clock and slowly wasting away in tie
on my hands
and knees i plead to see
the way that a child does see and waltz
not drowned
not buried
or cornered slammed
a fresh start ent*ty
an easy way to be
you’re past the age
