MANIFESTO

from 'In My Minds Eye' Album Four Demos by Yhan Leal

fan club exclusive

about

A song about events that happened to a boy when life was just a strange dream, when the simplest things were were of great comfort; clouds and wooden toys.

Decades later these moments would continue to reverberate through a mans life, for better and for worse. Is there a purpose? a meaning? a resolution? I'm not sure.

lyrics

You were only 5 when he left
No-one could say where or when
You would land far from anywhere
Talking on your radio

I just wanna feel safe
I just wanna be content

Somewhere on the blue horizon
Friends they seek good times with you
Forever is now if you'd notice
Wrote it in your manifesto

I just wanna feel safe
I just wanna have a friend

Somewhere in the white asylum
Talking to yourself in moments
Why I gotta be here
There must be some mistake
Let me make a phone call
I know I gotta be somewhere

You were only 5 when he left
No-one could say where or when
Making shapes from clouds above
Singing through your radio

I just wanna feel safe
I just wanna be content
