about

They say to write what you know, write from your heart, so give all the things that have happened to me over a couple years time I wrote this song. I dedicate this to everyone who has considered suicide as an option to heal their pain, and hope that this song's message helps them cope better with life through breathing meditation.

lyrics

Lyrics to "Monkey Mind":

Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (keep on breathin’)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Healin’ (keep on dealin’ with the pain)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Dreamin’ (keep the dream alive)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (breathin’, breathin’ through the pain)

My co-worker killed himself today,
We’ve got a lot of bills to pay,
Seems there’s something bad every day,
It gets me down but then I need to say …

Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (keep on breathin’)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Healin’ (keep on dealin’ with the pain)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Dreamin’ (keep the dream alive)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (breathin’, breathin’ through the pain)

Lost my job, Lost my Dad,
Buried so many people, it makes me sad,
Losin’ my life, losin’ my mind,
There’s one little thing, to help me find …

MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (keep on breathin’)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Healin’ (keep on dealin’ with the pain)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Dreamin’ (keep the dream alive)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (breathin’, breathin’ through the pain)

Thoughts are swimmin’ ‘round my head,
Wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I was dead,
Things that never have and been,
What I should have done, what I should have said …

Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (keep on breathin’)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Healin’ (keep on dealin’ with the pain)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Dreamin’ (keep the dream alive)
Oh MonkeyMind, I’m Breathin’ (breathin’, breathin’ through the pain)
