the simple, good, life; aka typical jack johnson afternoon

In the back of our house there’s a trail that won’t end
We were walking so far that it grew back again
There’s no trail at all only grass growing taller
Get out my machete and battle with time once again
But I’m bound to lose ’cause I’ll be damned if time don’t win

I’ve gotta get home there’s a garden to tend
All the seeds from the fruits buried and begin their
Own family trees teach them, thank you and pleases
They spread their own roots, then watch their young fruit grow again
And this old trail will lead me right back to where it begins
