Lyrics

Sitting, Smiling, Waiting

Written By: TJ Isenberg

It’s getting time to face it,
You’re not any different from the crowd
So stop your pacing
You’re lost but expecting something

Sit there smiling, waiting on me to discover you
And all you offer,
I can’t promise that I’ll look your way.

Your opportunity slipped by you
And you’ve all but pushed it through
I can’t stand beside you
Watch you crumble like you do.

Sit there smiling, waiting on me to discover you
And all you offer,
I can’t promise that I’ll look your way.

You didn’t expect to have to wait
Will your pride recover?
And now it’s getting near too late
It’ll take forever,
For another,
One to come along and decide

Sit there smiling, waiting on me to discover you
And all you offer,
I can’t promise that I’ll look your way.

Cheap Disguise

Written By: TJ Isenberg

Nothing real, like the pain that they don’t feel
But they tell you about so
Someone cares, and we reply
Now we both are lying
Share false moments so we feel
Better than we ever should.

Looking out my window it seems open someone’s jumping over the edge
I just sit here watching thinking that it’s not my problem yet.
I’ll just let them hit the ground
Still I try to close my eyes
As the questions fill my mind
Of everything that was left behind

Cheap disguise, gotta see through their own eyes
What they’re talking about
Is it real, or is it just me I can’t decide
Truth has been twisted too many times
When I look back now
I don’t feel
Anyway I ever should

Looking out my window it seems open someone’s jumping over the edge
I just sit here watching thinking that it’s not my problem yet.
I’ll just let them hit the ground
Still I try to close my eyes
As the questions fill my mind
Of everything that was left behind

Window are open people are jumping
We can’t let them fall and hit the
Windows are open people are jumping
We can’t let them fall and hit the
Window are open people are jumping
We can’t let them fall and hit the
Windows are open people are jumping
We can’t let them fall and hit the ground

SOLO

Looking out my window it seems open someone’s jumping over the edge
I just sit here watching thinking that it’s not my problem yet.
I’ll just let them hit the ground
Still I try to close my eyes
As the questions fill my mind
Of everything that was left behind

You Want Me

Written By: TJ Isenberg

Put down your guard and open up to me
I’m gonna slip into your soul and make it hard to breathe.
You’re a beauty head to toe
Now let me feel your inside
I’m gonna take a look around
Leave my presence behind
Once I’m gone you’ll catch your breath
Wonder where I’ve gone and the reason I left.

I’m running faster you’re slowing down
The chase is ending I’m gaining ground
Yeah you want me
Now you want me
Now you want me.

I tried to tell you when you put me down
You ran me down
You made me feel like, forever was better
and bleeding together
would help me and make me
take back what I said
but honestly I still can’t

I’m running faster you’re slowing down
The chase is ending I’m gaining ground
Yeah you want me
Now you want me
Now you want me. OH-

You make and I’ll run forever
Take it till I’m running you over and over and over yeah.

Running faster you’re slowing down
The chase is ending I’m gaining ground
Yeah you want me
Now you want me
Now you want me. OH-

Solo

Yeah you want me, now you want me
Yeah you want me - Oh
(Running faster you’re slowing down
The chase is ending I’m gaining ground
Yeah you want me
Now you want me
Now you want me. OH)

Lost

Written By: TJ Isenberg

It’ll all be there just waiting, have to get there,
All the way to the other side.
And along the way we realize
Maybe going,
A long way until we stop.

Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.
Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.

Next stop we we’re almost there
Are we getting somewhere anywhere but here.
Can’t find the exit sign.
And the fear, ten years later we’re waiting
Still can’t find where were heading
Still have a long long time until we stop again.

Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.
Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.

Solo

Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.
Now that we’re lost
Can we find a way,
Back to the start,
And do it all again.

Set List

Drum circles and rhythm events usually last from 30 minutes to two hours. As the facilitator I guide the group through a series of rhythms and rhythm games to reach a state of orchestrational consciousness, creating in the moment music with drums and percussion instruments.
