about

One of the first tracks I ever recorded. Basically a commentary on the pitfalls of organised religion and political dogma...

lyrics

So many stories penned by fools
So many rules to lock you down
The truth is so elusive no conclusive facts
To bring me round
To one way of thinking I’m drinking in everything
Watching it sinking into my mind
The truth of my kind

So many people try to tell me what’s the meaning of my life
Just waving books at me and yelling telling me what’s wrong from right
But I don’t listen to them, see right through them
Tell them I can figure it out
On my own

On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own, on my own

It’s all about the money the power the ego
The wherever he go then we go, does he know? I hope so
‘Cause we don’t, they don’t, just follow just follow just follow
Like a sheep to the fold yeah
Just do what you’re told yeah
Well maybe this guy got it right
Well I hope so
Cause you put your life
In the hands of so many fools who
Said they could save you
Cause you wanted to believe
But now they control you

Until you open up your eyes
You’re never going to see, or realize
That what you have right now
Is all you’ll
Ever need
All you’ll ever need.

And that’s why I’m gonna figure it out
On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own, on my own

On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own
I’m gonna figure it out
On my own, on my own
