Higher and Closer lyrics / poem by James Barnett

Carving out innovation from somewhere
Creating from nothing
All things have a source
Random letters strung together
For a DNA sequence called life
The same building blocks
Diverse applications
Countless different creatures
With so much in common

Ever wonder how we all got here
Ever wonder what it’s all about
To ponder the mysteries
The why’s of our lives
Sometimes too close to see the full picture
Take a higher view
And see the mystery revealed

Why are we here
To stumble and fall
To get up again
Rinse and repeat
What lessons to learn
How much in one lifetime
Do we keep coming back again and again
Eventually advancing
Expanding consciousness
Bringing humanity higher and closer
What is it like to be truly awakened

Shaking off the centuries of sleep
Being inspired out of a coma
There’s more to life
So much more than we’ve been told
Wisdom isn’t only for the gray and old
Anyone can live, learn, and apply
I choose to run and fly
Not simply waiting around to die

Why are we here
To stumble and fall
To get up again
Rinse and repeat
What lessons to learn
How much in one lifetime
Do we keep coming back again and again
Eventually advancing
Expanding consciousness
Bringing humanity higher and closer
What is it like to be truly awakened

Ever reaching, ever grasping
Still some progress being made
Focus on the positives
Flexible optimism helps
Make the body stronger
The mind quicker and clearer
The heart lighter and limber
A new way to live
Dropping the addiction to fear
Embracing the myriad possibilities
Like the colors of the rainbow
Life is multiple choice
Including all of the above
Get addicted to love and respect
Give for no other reason than to give
You’ll get more that way
In case that matters to you

Why are we here
To stumble and fall
To get up again
Rinse and repeat
What lessons to learn
How much in one lifetime
Do we keep coming back again and again
Eventually advancing
Expanding consciousness
Bringing humanity higher and closer
What is it like to be truly awakened
