The Tonic is about how music makes me feel...



Music is the tonic that makes me strong,
I was getting weak before I wrote this song.
The strumming and the singing are powerful tools,
For getting past the angst and the stress and the rules.
The rhythms and the flows tickle my head to my toes,
Rushing through my veins while the warm wind blows.
Speeding through my system, oh it makes me feel free,
When the voices blend to one in a harmony, yeah.

In a harmony Yeah

‘Cos it’s the way and the means,
To build reality from dreams.
There’s a reason and a rhyme to the passing of the time,
Though thats not the way it seems.

There’s a couple of drawbacks to the lifestyle,
I associate with the musical mile.
The booze etcetera
Won’t be lettin’ ya
Think too clear about the,
places it’s gettin’ ya.
No time to play when the bills aren’t paid,
The money isn’t good unless you’re already made.
But that’s not why a musician I be,
I like to feel the rush when the people see me Yeah

And when the voices blend to one Yeah

In a harmony Yeah
