What Is Missing?

When many voices get together with a like mind and a desire to help and not hurt others they can share their thoughts as one voice. The idea behind this song is to suggest that we keep vigilant about the things and forces around us. It is about sharing what we have learned without trying to force it upon others, but with enough conviction that hopefully others will at the very least take a look around them. It is about trying to get other to keep their eyes open and be aware. Look for what is missing not only in their own lives but in the lives of others around them. Maybe they can help. It suggests that maybe what is missing in our lives is ourselves.

What Is Missing?

We are barely
Gluing the world together
While we keep
Tearing it apart

We may not see
A rising ocean
yet we have all played
(a part)

You may have thought
you played a part
And yes, we’re all
In this together

If you can see a friend
Beside you
Then we may yet all stay
Heal a wounded heart
Open hidden eyes
Don’t think without a mind
Try to (visualize)

Notice everything around
Make a realization
Look carefully at what is found
It could be (your transformation)

Try to understand
What is missing

Try to understand
What is missing
And there has been
A separation
And very few have
shed a tear

We hardly know
our neighbor
Yet we live comfortable
(with fear)

Don’t give away
Your freedom
By losing
your head

Gather around a
A revelation
Share your heart
Someone points at
the mosaic
Pieces missing,
broken, faded

When we start picking up
the pieces
will we see
what we have (traded)
