Lost in the "Folly" of our new We Are Overlap song.


This song is about being free from the definitions we are taught as children.


To be free to live, breathe, and dance to our own song.


To let the folly of life fall aside and live the life you were given.


In the middle of the song there is a pause where we talk about love.


As a dance song, with meaning, we hope while dancing you'll use this pause to hug the one with

whom you're dancing.


Better yet, hug someone you don't know and spread the peace that is our natural state.


Thank you for supporting our band!



FOLLY

Don’t take everything so seriously

Everybody just wants to be exactly who they are

No, don’t take everything so seriously

Everything just wants to

Exactly what it is


Am I awake?

Or, is this a dream?

Not sure just what I mean

What is the difference between sleep and awake?

Sleep and awake


A game of folly that teases me

A game of folly that pleases me

A game of folly that’s haunting me

A game of folly

A game of folly

A game of folly

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

It’s all been a lie

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

All of it

All of it

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

Not even a dream tells the truth

Mirrors hanging from the walls

Waiting to fall and shatter


Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

The scattered memories of make-believe

Of make-believe, of make believe


It’s all a lie

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

Why even try?

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

It’s all a lie

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

Why even try?

Touch the dust

Why even try?

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

Shake it down to the ground touch the dust

The scattered memories of make-believe

Of make-believe, of make believe


Don’t take everything so seriously

Everybody just wants to be exactly who they are

No, don’t take everything so seriously

Everything just wants to

Exactly what it is


Am I awake?

Or, is this a dream?

Not sure just what I mean

What is the difference between sleep and awake?

Sleep and awake


A game of folly that teases me

A game of folly that pleases me

A game of folly that’s haunting me

A game of folly

A game of folly

A game of folly
