Song#: 11

Album
Name of Song: They don’t believe me

They don’t believe me,
My family and friends just reject,
Closet crazy is my self denial,
Doubting my feelings is my inner sect.

They always want me to prove it,
It’s hard to just express what’s in so deep,
At least I have the guts to talk about it,
Better doing that than becoming sheep.

Chorus
Is it simply the way we see things,
Does our presence make you fear,
Does our past make us feel real things,
And fate brings out our karma much too clear.
______

I cannot now imagine living calmly,
Too many questions left in float,
I haven’t got a friend who will believe me,
Guess it’s time to travel in my own boat.

Why is it always “well go on prove it”,
Have people lost their sense of who they are,
Can’t they believe in self for just a minute,
Feel their inner strength and touch a star.

People are given drugs to squash their feelings,
Not allowed to think outside the box,
It’s OK if you keep that stuff inside of you,
They only want to hear what doesn’t shock.

Chorus
Is it simply the way we see things,
Does our presence make you fear,
Does our past make us feel real things,
And fate brings out our karma much too clear.

Keep holding up the flag for those who try hard,
Protect the people who seek the how’s and why’s,
Keep holding up the flag for truthful seekers,
Make it safe for people to be surprised.

Advertise it’s OK to talk freely,
Advertise you’re not one too far gone,
Make it safe and don’t make people guilty,
Let them make their peace so they move on.

Speak your mind to people that are easy,
Don’t waste any time with those who’re not,
Make new friends that want to look much closer,
Marry someone who desires to leave the rot.

Chorus
