Go and stop pretending
This train is right on track
This mess is never-ending
So we have to take it back

This life that you are lending
For very little pay
It’s time for some mending
And find another way

Free, like a bird
To fly, where I want to go
Out to sea? just say the word
If you don’t you’ll never know

The message that you’re sending
Is everything’s ok
Look at how you’re spending
Every single day

I see you’re always bending
To someone else’s will
The drug you are depending on
A very bitter pill


Come with me have you heard?
I’m doing what I want to do
I know this sounds absurd
You can join me if you want to

Why are you defending?
A life not as it seems
How about ascending?
To the heights of your dreams

The life you want is pending
Watcha gonna do?
The fire you should be tending to
Is there inside of you

Exploring music and learning different instruments gives me the tools to create anything.
And I give myself permission.
