about

Running is my therapy.

lyrics

All these other runners, man I’ve seen them zooming
Can it be a canopy maybe a fantasy, illusion
I’m not speedy, but I plan keep it moving, help my soul relax
Indeed it’s soothing…running group that I am older than
I hold a can of liquid energy on Saturdays
Just to make it through the rest so I don’t start to crash and fade
My heart is better for the movement and the decompression
Me, myself, and many miles to go upon my feet, I’m stretching
Plus I level up my breath control and keep it stepping
Next to go upon a journey where we reap the message
The rhythm of my feet upon the path becomes the beat
Workshopping lines, rearranging words from underneath
my breath, seeing deer will make me side step
Towpath or Nature Preserves it’s a surprise, yep
In my own world, a passport made of earbuds
Each podcast and another stamp appears thus

Here comes another chance to run free
The post achilles snapping rapper with another fun spree
I gotta go I gotta go I gotta go
Just keep moving until the tree I see is home

Passing upon your left, the passenger of rapid breath
If 5 is what I get that’s more than if I sat to rest
Brooks Defyance 2s to Sauconys I’m flying through
Triumph is the latest model, clearance and I’m buying dude
I accrue future pairs for when the pair is done
A heel striker, mostly neutral when I’m wearing some
300 on the mileage and I swear it’s been fun
Muggy days are turning running shorts up into swim trunks
Winter runs I’m building ice upon my mustache
making crystal kingdoms on my eyelashes plus glass
And if you must ask, the answer is yes
You run your mouth, I’d rather run my feet and handle this stress
I’ve got a watch to keep track of my pace
And my pace is pretty slow but I’m at it with play
If I feel like turning back, then I can do so
But maybe pressing onward means I see a new road

Here comes another chance to run free
The post achilles snapping rapper with another fun spree
I gotta go I gotta go I gotta go
Just keep moving until the tree I see is home
