Return to Awe

Lyrics

You know, when you look at quotes that you’re used to reading
And you’re like oh, I’ve seen that bumper sticker before
It no longer resonates
It no longer inspires
I think it’s because of this thing of hedonic adaptation you know
The more you get exposed to something
Even if it’s a profound truth
You become blind to it
We’re all neophiliacs
But I think it’s important to

Return to things that are meaningful
And bathe inside of them
Return to things that are important

To see the world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
Or eternity in an hour

How do we put ourselves into that meditative head-space
Where the feedback loops between our creative and linguistic choices and our consciousness
Leads to the kind of self-amplifying positivity, inspiration, feel-good vibe
Innovative thinking, liquid flow
How to get to that head-space

Shake up the rug from underneath your feet
Disruption makes things new again
It makes ideas fresh

Return to things that are meaningful
And bathe inside of them
Partake in those things that will somehow

Make us come alive
