From The Vault #3



Click the image above to listen to this week's From The Vault on soundcloud. I really should record this one. I am really happy with the driving rock groove.

The lyrics were inspired by the notion of identifying with the ephermal (ego) vs the eternal (spirit).

My Selfish Life

time is our foe

battling egos

obsessive heros

scrounging for halos

a fight to lose

but o well, we choose

to give up the war

and keep our self-abuse

don’t touch my stuff

guess it’s good enough

I’d rather die than

have you read my bluff

you say nothing lasts

but I hang on to what I have

I don’t care, I mean

I know how to pack

I wish to change

but not hard enough

life won’t self-solve

with band-aids and tough love

the older I get the less I’ll give up

the longer I live my selfish life

my selfish life

the colder I get the further I go

I may reap but never will I sow

my selfish life

my selfish life

what can I say what can I say

my selfish life

come what may come what may

my selfish life

come what may...

death's battle’s not equal

we know how it goes

you give it all to fight it

and end with empty clothes

you wanna leave a mark

you wanna make a stand

but a stand takes practice

and you work best “on demand”

maybe you’ll conquer

download your soul

autonomous from nature

no destiny can control

you are what you hold

power is in your reach

you’d rather live on file

than die the life you preach

I want to start over

but it’s too late for me

I prefer finer things

and God knows they’re not free!

the older I get the less I’ll give up

the longer I live my selfish life

my selfish life

the colder I get the further I go

I may reap but never will I sow

my selfish life

the older I get the less I’ll give up

the longer I live my selfish life

my selfish life

the colder I get the further I go

I may reap but never will I sow

my selfish life

my selfish life

what can I say what can I say

my selfish life

come what may come what may

my selfish life

come what may...

the older I get the less I’ll give up

the longer I live my selfish life

my selfish life

the colder I get the further I go

I may reap but never will I sow

my selfish life

the older I get the less I’ll give up

the longer I live my selfish life

my selfish life
