they say in life:
it's "easy come & easy go"
"good things come to those who wait"
but then they say
"gotta hold onto what you have"
"if you want something in life,
you have to seize the day"
"they" always seem to have an answer,
an opinion on just how i should
live my life
learning lessons from a book of cliches
learning life from a "hand me down" phrase
but that's not the way for me
"time flies when you're having fun"
"good things never last" (never last! - ode to Insted)
although they may seem true at times
remember that a "line" is just a "line"
not a formula or philosophy
or a blueprint for you to follow.
live life your way
not how other people say.
(lyrics i wrote when i was lucky enough to be writing, recording & playing
with Where Fear And Weapons Meet - this was always the song i
was most proud of "lyrically" on the Unstoppable cd we released on
Triple Crown Records in around 2001)
