CIRCUMSTANCES

Verse 1
I look to the future
and I'll tell you what's there
unlimited potential
but only if you dare
dream and wonder
and reach out with care
the world you wish
you must work to share
be what you want to see
and live with a flare
shining bright through the nights
showing others you care
define your purpose
and forget the stares
reject those glares
keep climbing those stairs
up even higher in the mountain air
your potential exponentially rare
you're the only one that's got it
time to wake up be aware
don't wallow it away
get your broken heart repaired
focus on the wonderful
forget what's elsewhere
be a blessing to each other
with much love to spare
cause it sucks living stuck
in mud with despair
don't ever let your pain
or your hate be a snare

Verse 2
you see a mess
I see the collage
you breath the stress
I say let it massage
work those knots
and will dislodge
all of the phony
and fake garbage
that makes your
blurry life a mirage
like cleaning clutter
from a cramped garage
prioritize life like triage
but be aware of life's barrage
cause circumstances can sabotage
if you're chilling not ready
and you don't know how to dodge
run a ship like that
and you'll never leave the dock
you'll be stuck on shore
with a sea gull flock
sea shells and rocks
with your journey stopped
we'd all rather break
one bottle on the bow
with one on deck
take the cork and pop
as the whole world cheers
out bon voyage!

Hook
circumstances can control
but don't back down keep dreaming bold
time won't stop and it will not slow
it's up to you to press on and go
x2

Bridge
ever since you were young with dreams
circumstances tried to stop your steam
snuff your flame and impede your beam
try to force you to break your seams
but me, Ben Z, believe, that we,
all need, to dream, and be, living free
