Without Thought


The first real song I ever wrote, my freshman year of High School, in May 2004.

Echoes bounce across my walls
Outside the rain pounds, and falls
This room is a cage
My thoughts are searching
For an empty page

CHORUS: I need no rain coat
As I go out

The grass is wet, the soil soft
I gaze up into the tree’s loft
Up towards the driving rain
To the top
And then I breath again


Up among these branches high
My mind can rest, I sigh
And though the rain is harsh and cold
At last I’m free
From thought’s hold


Without my body, my soul would fly
I let my hand slip, I say goodbye
My thoughts are clear, no longer bound
I fall towards freedom
Not the ground

I need no rain coat
As I go out
