    I LAY HERE IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT
    IN COMPLETE SILENCE
    I HEAR THE THUMP OF MY HEARTS EVERY BEAT
    I HEAR THE WINDING OF THOUGHTS IN MY BRAIN
    EVERY THUMP EVERY SCREACH
    I HEAR THE SILENCE OF PEACE

    AS I LAY HERE IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT
    MY SOUL TAKES FLIGHT
    DANCING ON THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT
    ESCAPING THE USUAL CHAOS
    THAT MY SPIRIT USUALLY DANCE WITH
    A CROWDED SPIRIT , FULL OF DAYS RUCKUS,
    EVERYBODY ELSE JUNK ,COMPLAINTS , HEARTACHES
    I RELEASE ,FLOWING THROUGH MY POURS IN THE FORM OF SWEAT .
    I RELEASE THE SALT OF THE WORLD
    FEASTING ON THE SWEET HONEYDEW BROUGHT BY PEACE
    I RELEASE

    I LAY HERE IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT
    ALLOWING THE DARKNESS TO BRING ME REFUGE
    SILENCE TO BE MY SOUL SANCTUARY
    ALLOWING THE SOUNDS TO BE THE GUIDE TO THE PLACE OF SOLITUDE
    TRAVELING SO FAR , DRIFTING SO DEEP UNTIL SOUND IS NO MORE

    AS I LAY HERE PEACE POUR OVER ME FROM THE TOP OF MY HEAD TO THE BOTTOM OF MY FEET
    I RELEASE AND DANCE WITH PEACE
