about

Egocentrism is the inability to tell the difference between oneself and others.
I wrote Soil about the ugly things that people communicate to one when we don't take the time to consider things from another person's perspective.

lyrics

Would the Oak say to the Pine
"Not so many needles next time
Try a few leaves, you'll do just fine if you look a little more like me"
Or the Sycamore to the Blackberry vine
"Just let go your thorns and grow your branches tall like mine
We'd all be better if you looked a little more like me"

Nah, but we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have, no, we don't all have
Would the Sunflower say to the Lilly of the Valley
"Why do you hide in the shade
Come forth and show your colors proudly
You would be more _____ if you grew like me"
Mmm Yeahhh
Or the Sequoia to a Sapling in a fire
"Maybe if you would've worked harder
Reached a little higher
You could stand strong like me"

Nah nah nah nah, but we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have, no, we don't all have-

Nah nah we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have, no, we don't all have-

Nah nah we-
Same soil. Same soil

Nah but we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have, no, we don't all-

Nah nah nah we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have, no, we don't all have-

Nah nah we-
We don't all have the same soil
We don't all have the same soil
We don't have, no, we don't all have-
