Sometimes I don't want to want to know why 
Sometimes I want to shut off the flashing red light that says always analyze
Sometimes I just want to curl up in a shell and and let the sand roll over 
Sometimes I want to pin my shoulders back head up and look up to the sky with no option for slouch 
Sometimes I want to fast forward and know
Sometimes I want the water to crash a few more times before letting me be free to go
Sometimes I want to make opposites into one once and for all 
Sometimes I just want to not have the complexity and self-critiquing of a mind that's found and lost
Sometimes I want to let go of all self standards and values and run wild
Sometimes I want to dance as if I had no off button 
Sometimes I want to escape in a way that makes me stay
