 E (022100@1)       G (320003@1)       A (x02220@1)              A? AFor (x02220@1)clear space and soundness of mind
 E (022100@1)      G (320003@1)     A (x02220@1)              A? AI've (x02220@1)let you play me for some time

   E (022100@1)        G (320003@1)       A--Pause-- (x02220@1)And yet still let me pay you when I fell

Fig 3. - 4X
How is it you're feeling so uneasy?
How is it that I feel fine?
Life reveals what's dealt through seasons
Circle comes around each time
I've been blessed with eyes to see this
Behind the unwholsome truth you hide
Bite to remind the bitten, bigger
Mouth repaying tenfold wide
