Artemis Auclair Everything, this track is so beyond words. A whole genre can be done with this vibe. It’s so beautiful, every time I play this song in public, people start shazaming it 😎... I ain’t mad, it’s a freaking great track. 👌

To first protect the circle,
must learn to protect the square
We never need to make a triangle,
unless it's for a meditation or prayer

So, I'm not trying to change you
I love the way you think
But when they whisper in your ear,
try to stay away from snakes

Some people try to move sideways,
some only after hours
Some hide inside of your garden
between the roses and the flowers
I'm saying, when you see a star fall, crash, and burn,
you hoped that other people will learn
When you've been there, done that,
you know how it works, it's not a good thing

I'm not trying to change you, you're a queen
I love the way you think
When people whisper in your ear
It's not a good thing, try to stay away from snakes

I'm not trying to change you,
I love the way you think
But when people whisper in your ear,
It's not a good thing
Try to stay away from snakes

I'm not trying to change you,
I'm just trying to elevate
I may love you more than you think
I'm just trying to keep us away from snakes
