about

This song has a deep, hypnotic groove and talks about how we, as humans, think way too much (“Thoughts are clouds, drifting thru the sky. Fill your head…no end in sight”) And that thinking too much or obsessing over details, often serve no purpose, make no difference and “is like…throwing stones in a river”.

lyrics

Thoughts are clouds
drifting thru the sky
Fill your head
no end in sight

Worry day and night
what does it do?
What you think about
rarely comes true


All this thinking is like
throwing stones in a river
Stones in the river don’t mean a thing


Thoughts aren’t words
spoken can tell the truth
Make life hard
a road that’s not smooth

Easy to focus
bad thoughts in your mind
You look close
what do you find?


All this thinking is like
throwing stones in a river
stones in the river
All this thinking is like
throwing stones in a river
Stones in the river don’t mean a thing


We all have times
meant for the past
Play them over
just make them last


Free your mind
float down a stream
You’ll find happiness
isn’t a dream


All this thinking is like
throwing stones in a river
Stones in the river don’t mean a thing

All this thinking is like
throwing stones in a river
Stones in the river don’t mean a thing


All this thinking
all this thinking
