Layer

Dennis Fountaine

The layers peel away one by one
All weíre trying to do is melt away the surface stuff
So we can get to whatís really tuff
Itís like peeling an onion
Sometimes it makes you cry
Sometimes we wonder why
Sometimes it tastes good
most of the time itís never understood
Layers upon layers of protection that never have direction
We have to peel away each other section by section
Until we reach our afflictions
Now this will become our addiction
To love and heal will be our conviction
And then it will be our prediction
That true love and intimacy will be our depiction
Layer by layer we peel away one by one
