ON WRITING – The Reason That I Write

Now, this is my job, I will not quit it

photoPulled me out the depths when I thought that I was finished

Yeah I questioned if I could go the distance

That’s just the work, regardless of who’s listening, listening

Listen, see I was meant to be a warrior

Fight something amongst me, leave here victorious

Classroom of kids, or a venue performing

If I’d had done it for the money I’d have been a fucking lawyer

Concrete, vagabond, van telling stories

Humbled by the road, I’m realizing I’m not important

See life’s a beautiful struggle, I record it

Hope it helps you maneuvering through yours and

That’s why we stay in the lab at night

I’ve been staring into this pad for over half my life

A true artist won’t be satisfied

So I guess that’s the sacrifice

And I say…
