Imagining a Whole New Mind   by Heidi Robertson

(a song in my mind based on the stories of Jonah Lehrer and the thinks of Daniel Pink)

Before the gloried breakthrough the impass has its way

We are stuck and then we’re airborne, Even whites must have their grays

Break the black box of old thinking, Out comes Dylan, his best tour

See the forest mid the pink trees, stop the fight in dreaming more

Chorus: It’s al-right. You’ll be okay. Stay alive. The day will come

Definitions and old thinking Could be WRONG. Here comes the sun.

Have to wrestle with the problem to be found we must get lost

This is nothing less than Swiffer pasty tissues box to tossed

endless hours of sweet old ladies sticking floors with dirty mops

3M scotch tape, holy post-its!  Imagination has its cost

Where Apraxic lends to vision Making sense of LEDs

In the lighting douse derision Counterclockwise spells a name

They say always bring a lightbulb It’s al-right…Tom, It’s al-right

Dreaming anything is placid It’s al-right…Bob, it’s okay

da da da da da da dah

da da da da da da day

da da da da da da da

Everything will be okay

Stop your searching. Stop your shouting. Making sense will come in time

Rest and hold it all together Let the whisperings unwind

When we’re feeling more in less In Together we’ll be found

Risking trust in kindly risking giving thanks where nothings lined

just how close we will have come to the edge to tell our truths

through the pain to find the healing in the parts we’ll find our use

Every breakthrough has a problem Every question has a box

If you hang up in the searching You’ll have problems with the lock

Archimedes in the bathtub Strung out Dylan breaking chords

from a useless chunk of tissue comes an angel, Heaven born

Be the tree and see the forest rub the bark and you’ll soon feel

from the aching comes the finding in connecting we can heal.

Chorus: It’s al-right. You’ll be okay. Stay alive. The day will come

Definitions and old thinking Could be WRONG Here comes the sun.

da da da da da da dah

da da da da da da day

da da da da da da da

Everything will be okay
