Well if you only get one life why not choose to live it wise, skip all the bullshit keep your eyes on the prize,
So easy to get lost in a world full of lies, of cheaters in masks and traitors in disguise,
No matter where you go I promise it'll be the same, the people look like sheep and herd dogs never change,
So name your time and place, I'll tell ya its all part of the game,
The game of life is easy just take off your ball and chain

Too many times I found myself a man of constant fear, the fear of knowing when I grabbed the wheel I couldn't steer,
I crashed myself too many times and now it seems so clear, that I no longer recognize the man who's in the mirror,
But I found a moment to let myself shine, if I wanted control then now was the time, for all of my gloom it was the end of the line, to rise myself up and begin the incline!

So tell me what's the point of life if you ain't living right, live out your hopes and dreams and never let them out of sight,
I'll never quit until the day I see my final light, but even then I know I'll live to see another night,
You can't kill a will so strong, and when the rain just keeps pouring continue on, cuz I've been traveling down this road so long, and nothing or nobody will steer me wrong

Give a lot or give a little, give out nothing you will see, the days have taught me don't be selfish, karma suits accordingly,
Give a smile, hug or hi-five, try to brighten someones day,
It seems we've lost respect & kindness, love & peace have gone away,
It's amazing the things I've seen in my life, so many are taken with pain and with strife, sometimes I feel like I can't take anymore, have you forgotten what you're grateful for?

I first started writing/playing music in 2001. I've always continued to write music from my heart and pour it into any project I'm in. I want you to take something with you when you hear my music. That could be a lyric, maybe an emotion it made you feel. As long as you feel something, anything, then I've done my job. ... more
