Leave the Man Alone

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

I'd like to carve these words into a young tree 'fore it grows
Engraved with the fine point of a pin easy and slow
And on the tender rind, the words will grow unto it's prime
Leave the man alone, at least to ease his troubled mind

The workplace has no windows and the trains grind people down
The buses take the sleepy to and from work wearing frowns
We go to bed in silence for a short 6 hours time
Leave the man alone, at least to ease his troubled mind

The landlord left a note, and the mistress left a text
The boss-man sent an email, and the roommate beat his chest
Said the dishes needed cleaning, although none of them were mine
Leave the man alone, at least to ease his troubled mind

I ran from my apartment and I found myself a bar
All of them I frequent, so I needn't traveled far
The bar man took one look at me and said to all inside
Leave the man alone, at least to ease his troubled mind

My Christian, Muslim, Jewish friends all worry bout my fate
The Buddhists doing yoga tell me playing dumb is great
There's idle talk of chakras, are there seven, or are there five?
Leave the man alone, at least to ease his troubled mind

Where religion ends, philosophy tries to procure truth
Where Alchemy proved useless, sure yeah science put to use
Where self help books, and breathing techniques fail to recognize
Leave the man alone, how else to ease a troubled mind
Where self help books, and breathing techniques fail to recognize
Leave the man alone, how else to ease a troubled mind
