So you think you can size me, so you think you can chide me on my mind
Wake up and step back again, sow me on my side
But it lives up and it keeps up and there’s a war in my mind
Keep right, go left, up and under, sow me on my side

Rumi is huge in this day and age
Even Shakespeare is less leaned on than Rumi, it makes sense
This is the time of Rumi and the marriage of all things
Dear Love to lean on it gets all worn down sometimes

Sow me on my side, sow me on my side

Cold factin’ it away
In the mountains there is a boy growing into a man who needs the code
It’s in the contract of sacred mentorhood
As close as close can be has been permitted now
Sow me on my side

My true love I release you
I will never fight with you like that again, now
This is the time of Rumi and the marriage of all things
Dear love to lean on it gets all worn down sometimes
