A song describing the common human condition of getting older and developing a tendency towards following the herd effect and what others do or say as opposed to thinking for oneself. Key themes include letting go of the ego, renewal of leases on life, and abandonment of unhealthy systematic learning.
In the beginning we were young,
All those stupid things we'd done,
And in the illusion www called life,
we built our fortresses in strife
Now maybe you're lonely and depressed,
Your looking for answers from all the rest.
Maybe you forgot how to dance to your own song.
So come take a moment for your health,
Escape the ego within yourself.
A new revelation within your heart,
In need of good reason to kickstart.
So lend me your systematic thoughts,
We will return them to their Gods,
The world is not fifth avenue,
Choose the stars for your next route.
Yeah maybe you're stoic and oppressed,
Never believing you've done your best.
Maybe the time has come to take
Your inhibitions to their graves and
Give it all away...
