71. Outside The Lines - rough vocal sketch
Lyrics
Outside the Lines
2015 Sahlen-Starburst

I'm snoring, downright boring
When I stay within the lines
No one sees me thru the palm trees
Weather sick or feeling fine
It's forbidden nearly hidden
When the truth comes home to roost
In a moment I will own it
When full wonder gets a boost.

(chorus)
In a world that longs for wisdom with a devil of a chance
Come the cries for precious freedom living fully in the dance
Grasping for the golden moment when we know the earth is fine
Building dreams fulfilled with vision as we paint outside the lines

Blue collar hear 'em holler
It's the poor who must survive
All the wealthy barely healthy
In the soul of a bee hive
Left behind all mankind
It's a blessing and a curse
Fully bated satiated
Do it now or take a hearse

(chorus)
In a world that longs for wisdom with a devil of a chance
Come the cries for precious freedom living fully in the dance
Grasping for the golden moment when we know the earth is fine
Building dreams fulfilled with vision as we paint outside the lines

(bridge)
With crayons in our hand a picture in our hearts
We keep moving ever forward in a world that's torn apart

(chorus)
In a world that longs for wisdom with a devil of a chance
Come the cries for precious freedom living fully in the dance
Grasping for the golden moment when we know the earth is fine
Building dreams fulfilled with vision as we paint outside the lines
