Music and Lyrics by Abby Ahmad
Detour Music, 2011 (ASCAP)



Lying restless in our bed
Victim to a tortured head
We are wired
Too tired to fight the good fight

Feeling battered
Blocked and blind
Made of suffering
The human kind
Let it fly
Let us find some solace

Heart longs to take the leap
Head fears the fall
Rock it all fast asleep

Finding the drone
Drown out the voices
And let it alone

I'm alright
If you're ok
Fear's an illusion, anyway
Find a light
Push it out of mind
Out of sight

The path is crucial
Road is rough
Let's ride it till our wheels fall off
Say goodnight
You and I have a legend to write

But something is stirring deep
Within these walls
I've heard that talk is cheap

Finding the drone
Drown out the voices
And let it alone

Drown out the voices
Let it alone

Drown out the noise
Let it alone
