David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: Think for yourself

Trusting that symbol,
A person or thing,
It calms your concerns,
Instant knowing that it brings.

They play on who,
You really are,
A spiritual being
that’s been imaged too far.

Used to just knowing
and simply going in
To what you should know,
But now too much skin.

Chorus
Hard to remember
the last time you got fooled,
Too many images
that were programmed to rule.
If you decide
to make it your own,
Still think for yourself,
Never give up your throne.
______

How long we’ve been doing this?,
You’d think we’d have learned,
Think for yourself
and you’ll stop getting burned.

Make it a point,
Of looking inside,
Way past the symbol,
Putting rumors aside.

The flash of a symbol,
Is what has been done,
A fast way to trap
so you slide into one.

Chorus
Hard to remember
the last time you got fooled,
Too many images
that were programmed to rule.
If you decide
to make it your own,
Still think for yourself,
Never give up your throne.

______

Separate is better,
Observation is key,
Calmly pervade
till you know what you see.

Symbols are everywhere,
Invitations to come in,
To what they are selling,
Sometimes simply just sin.

The flash of a symbol,
Is what has been done,
A fast way to trap
so you slide into one.

Chorus
Hard to remember
the last time you got fooled,
Too many images
that were programmed to rule.
If you decide
to make it your own,
Still think for yourself,
Never give up your throne.
