about

At opposite ends of a spectrum sit two sensations. One is the sensation of being disconnected from everything and everyone, that “What is this all about,” kind of feeling, and the other sensation is one of feeling fully connected to and a part of everything. This song starts in the former feeling and is a movement into the latter. It’s about stepping back to look at the bigger picture and liking what I see.

lyrics

Has it all been decided
Before we begin
If it’s all been decided
Where do I fit in

I’m not so sure I believe that
I’m not so sure I believe
I’m not so sure I believe that
I fit in

So I rise up and look down from an eagle-eye view
I watch all you people, you’re like pieces of a puzzle
This I ponder
And it seems it’s all connected and this mosaic is a patchwork sea
And if it’s all connected a shifting mosaic on a patchwork sea

We are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all puzzle pieces
We are all trying to fit in

Now don’t be alarmed
I’m not I’m listening…and observing
But don’t be alarmed
I’m not I’m listening, I’m always listening now, listening now
Don’t be alarmed, no I’m listening

I glide through the clouds, down
I’m asking no questions
As I slip into my place I know I don’t
Need all of the answer right now

‘Cos we are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all learning to fit in
