I am in a garden sitting overgrown
And there’s so much more living here than just
the seeds that I have sown
I’m in the weeds, lost the forest for the trees

And I’ve been working hard not to squander my existence
Is it right or wrong to take the path of least resistance
What I want and what I need, I can’t hardly tell the difference

If life burns like a fire, there’s always been something there to feed it
When I don’t get what I want, guess that I don’t need it.

I’ve been praying for forgiveness but I don’t know what for
To God, to the universe, to you, I’m not really sure
What am I praying for?

I’ve been walking around always trying to get somewhere
What I’m thinking now, everyday’s an answered prayer
Every day’s an answered prayer.

I don’t always feel as alive as I know I am
Like a firecracker waiting to go BANG! BANG! BANG!
Oh, I’m a little engine and I think I can.
