100 Word Song: The Only Exception

80498.jpgThe Only Exception 

verse

Keeping a comfortable distance

From all of the noise that surrounds me and shadows me

One more distraction that leans on me heavily

Knocks down my house of cards

Shatters it steadily

The only exception is silence

The only exception’s my mind on the disconnect

Doing things naturally

‘stead of what’s good for me

Taking the road with the least

‘mount of traffic

chorus

The only exception is hearing my own voice

The only exception is drowning out bullshit

The only exception comes deep from the heart

And the only exception’s what keeps things afloat

verse

Compare a world of accomplishment

Despair comes at the heart of it

Contrast each single moment

That brings back the smile and the drive and the feel of it

chorus

The only exception is hearing my own voice

The only exception is drowning out bullshit

The only exception comes deep from the heart

And the only exception’s what keeps things afloat

    Great take on the prompt. I would love to hear this put to music. Sometimes it’s hard to drown out the bullshit ;-)
