a quiet mind

Too many things running around
Rattling here inside my head
Things I’ve forgotten
Things I can’t forget
Things I wish were dead

So many times I’ve tried to find
Trying to discover the gold
Of those famous silent sounds
Of those quiet moments
Of the things I’ve been told

Help me turn the volume down
Help me filter out the buzz
Help me learn what I’ve found
Help me quietly, just because

Jumping from branch to branch
On this conversational tree
Like a chimp chasing 
Like a squirrel nut raking
Mind of the monkey

Help me turn the volume down
Help me filter out the buzz
Help me learn what I’ve found
Help me quietly, just because

Just because
just because
I need a quiet mind

  1. Hello darkness, my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.
    lyrics: Sound of Silence
