Anthem for Change

I had an awesome date with my Mrs. tonight.  We saw HIDDEN FIGURES (amazing) and had our last “cheat” meal before starting a cleanse tomorrow.  Between the movie, the pizza and the alcohol, we had a lot to talk about.  Ideas for our future, challenges for our present, dreams that seem hard to dream.  I’m all talked out for the day, but I’m going to leave you with this stirring inside me courtesy of Sara Bareilles….

PARKING LOT

It’s a feeling
My hands and feet held to the floor like I’m kneeling
Crawl straight to what fate sent through
Holding down the only solid ground I can find
‘Cause I don’t wanna try the other kind

I don’t have it yet
A good sense of knowing when what I do should be immediate
But all this waiting for a sign from the other side
For fuck’s sake, this is just a timeline
Just a timeline

Sara, stop it
Pick out your paralysis
And unlock it
And flex the fear until it builds you a rocket and rise
And if you fall at least you end up between where you will be and where you will have been, yeah

I can’t keep paying for the same spot
In a parking lot
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
I just keep paying for the same spot
In a parking lot
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore

Wish I was lying
My worry circles my brain like it’s dying
And that redhead vulture is well fed
But what that mutiny used to be is no used to me now
Tell me how it all turns out
‘Cause I’m not sticking around

I can’t keep paying for the same spot
In a parking lot
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
I just keep paying for the same spot
In a parking lot
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore
Can’t stay here, no, not anymore

Can’t breathe in a parking lot

Give me divine dissatisfaction
Give me a heart unsettled soul
Give me emotion into action
‘Cause I can’t take this anymore

Can’t breathe in a parking lot
Not anymore
I can’t breathe in a parking lot
