Silly Things
by Bob Farley
2015
The universe is many little cages
Full of dreams that seem so outrageous
Till we make them true
With silly things we do
With silly things we do

CHORUS
Just grab hold of what is real
Don't let go see how it feels
Hold on tight, make it last
Dream the future and save the past

The universe is many little cages
Full of dreams that seem so outrageous
Till we do the work to make them true
With all the little silly things we do

CHORUS

Economy of motion is the dance of life
Victory is the potion that'll make it right
Everybody's crazy, everybody's lean
Living on the edges of a dream

CHORUS

================

A near praise and worship worthy song, with its nod to the universe and casual wink toward 1 Corinthians 4:10, which talks about being "fools for Christ." It wound up being pretty secular, though. I put the Garageband synthesizer-like sounds of the Arp Pad and Layers in it to jar the beginning out of complacency and to match up with the Backwards Melody loop break. Cheap thrill or warranted necessity? Time will tell.
