Story

The bandits and wild horses in this song refer to the thoughts that overtake us so often. We feel overburdened by their weight, being pulled in all sorts of directions. If we don't practice 'stilling the mind' for fifteen minutes or so a day, our thoughts will be certain to be tyranical in their ways. 'Stilling the Mind', also refers to being AWARE of our thoughts, and who it is that is thinking the thoughts. What is IT that is aware of the one who is thinking those thoughts?

Lyrics

I can't sleep - I'm in overdrive Thoughts run wild in my head - Despot mind spun its web Oh, mad in overdrive Verse: Bandits on the loose - they're in command- it's tyranny A slave to their whims - will bending in - they're thinking me Oh, tormented by all this clamor in my head Choose silence or agonize in overdrive ...to chorus... Verse: Horses break away - chariot hauls down dangers way Freedom dangles from holding the reins once again Oh, tormented by all this clamor in my head Choose silence or agonize in overdrive Chorus: I can't sleep- I'm in overdrive, I can't sleep I'm in overdrive Thoughts run wild in my head - Despot mind spun its web Oh, mad in overdrive
