lyrics

when i first arrived to the siskiyou mountains
from the familiar tug of scranton pennsylvania
i was hedged behind the confines of
industrial blue collar work
so i put on a different shirt
the one i put on wasn’t blue but brown
fit in with my friends in town
and i got nitrile gloves and scissors
so i could go to work

and i let a profound experience wash over me.
and in an instant my entire future changed drastically.
i let a profound experience wash over me

when i first got here from the corn fields of iowa
i used to put on my makeup
and do my hair before i went to work
i was a loquacious bar-tender
didn’t know how to change a tire or cook
met my boyfriend out here at a music festival
lived on my friends land in a quaint cabin
and i had never knew that this would eventually
be my dream
now i’m glad i took the road that i travelled

i let a profound experience wash over me
and for an instant i could
see things a little more clearly
i let a profound experience wash over me.

on my travels out here i happened across a couple
from atlanta
the guy said he was on a homeostasis expedition
i said
what exactly do you mean by that
the reply was something that I can’t quite remember today
so i’ll paraphrase
it was about being able to find joy in the small things
and opening up your soul to little slivers of clarity
and letting profound experiences wash over you
