lyrics

clearing out the cobwebs in the corner of the room
minimalize till I'm living a simpler life
getting rid of everything I don't use

I could live without greed
look at money as energy exchange
not an enemy

if I could live without material wealth
have a vision of richness inside of myself
If I can love who I am and not lie to myself
If I could see something new and start trying it out

if I could live without complaining
without pointing out the flaws that I fabricate
if I could live without blame, labels and naming
and saying sorry when I'm not

I could live without a lot

clearing out the cobwebs in the corner of the room
minimalize till I'm living simpler life
getting rid of everything I don't use

I can live without segregation
social class race discrimination
I can live without hatred

I can live with privilege
without being ignorant
to fact that people are treated different
because their skin pigment

I could live without morals
I could live without religion
I could live without a mission

I could live without addiction
I could live without a prison system
I could live without misogynist men and rape victims
I could live without a car, without a house,
without a job, without a god
without a doubt

I gotta lot that I want to live with
but even more that I want to live without

I could live without doubt
have faith in the plans I make
I could live without fear
I can trust myself, I can put trust out

I could live without stress
I can decompress without being depressed
I can allow myself the space that need,
and a place I can rest

I can live without purpose
I could pray everyday
without being preached at inside of churches

I could live without war, scarcity and violence
could live without being silenced
when I speak out instead of staying private

I can exist in an invisible infinite dimension without even trying

which is to say, I can live without dying
