Cure My Mind

“The Prodigal, having been humbled, has a Mind full of self-doubt… 

“I have been beaten down many times in my Life… I have (at this point) had 4 breakdowns from exhaustion and deep emotional losses… I think we totally underestimate the impact of our emotions on our lives… I have had losses so devastating, I have been bedbound…forgetting to eat and only sleeping…sleep of unceasing nightmares… In all of these cases, it is not my Body (directly) or Spirit that took the hit, but my Mind… I don’t know what the Mind is…but it impacts me a great deal… But I am more than my Mind…and I recognize so many of my perceived troubles are a direct result of my thinking… Is there a cure? Yes, there is!”


Can you help me cure my mind?
Can you help me rest easy?
For I am lost in this world and this time?
 
Can you know, can you tell, can you see it all so well?
Can you see through this shadow I call mine?
 
(Guitar break)
 
Because I don’t, pretend
To know how this will end
Or if it does? Must I disclose my doubts?
 
Oh you will quickly see
That the mastermind ain’t me
‘Cause I’m a fool for chasing lovely dreams
 
(Instrumental – 12th fret walk-down - solo cycle)
 
Can you help me cure my mind?
Can you help me see clearly?
Can you help me once again to believe?
 
Can you take away my pain?
Or the troubled soul within?
Can you make a broken column stand again?
 
(guitar break)
 
In a Life of subtleties
There’s an earthquake beneath my feet
That somehow, somehow I failed to feel
 
With courage, I hit the world
Now the sad joke’s I’m unfurled
Like a flag you can’t refold even if you tried
 
Can you help me cure my mind?
Can you help me rest easy?
Can you help me once again to believe?
 
Can you know, can you tell, can you see it all so well?
Can you find me, when I can’t find myself?
Can you find me, when I can’t find myself?
How can you find me, when I can’t find myself?
