What Have You Done Today

What Have You Done Today (From the album MANDALA)

High and dry and quite alive I’m wandering in this world
Awake just enough but as we speak I’m trusting in a god I just can’t seem to see
But I think he’s got me on the right feet.

CHORUS
What have you done today to make you feel so real?
Who has saved you from the hunters in the field?
What have you done today to make you feel so real?
Who has saved you from the hunters in the field?

Pretty pictures tenderized with brushes full of hymns
The crazy painters harmonized while the judges gave their jeers
Packed away inside a box lies treasure great unknown
The muses keep it locked up tight, to block the danger zone

CHORUS

No answer in sight no matter how hard you try
And every time you turn away it seems to pass you by
Wandering in circles the feeling never ends
But get a grip, and don’t you slip, look at life through a different lense

CHORUS

Each man takes a step greater than a thousand stairs
Then from under his feet flies the carpet unawares
You may think you see, but you only see so far
And you may need help along the way, so beware of who you are

CHORUS (All you cannibals in the field)

The destination may be the journey, but we’re too short sighted to see
Are we prisoners in the dark? Can you uphold what you believe?
There’s plenty of baggage on The Way. While you travel, travel light.
You’ve got to look the wind straight in the face cause in you the solution lies
