lyrics

I think it's time, time we took control
If we never try we'll never know
If we never try we'll never grow
And I think it's right to reap the things you sow
So if you can survive wholly alone
I know we can thrive together

Where's the breaking point? The point of no return
Will it take another tragedy to learn
or will we realise before the world burns?
We all know it's right to be conscious of desolation
But us humans have a habit of finding new ways to fuck things up
The only way is to regress, it's the only way we can function

So all you have to do to earn a living
Is live your life and be forgiving
'Cos life is the highest of all gifts, let's realise this
And prioritise or face our demise
There's no other prize higher than our lives
So step outside the rich man's wallet
You're living in their back pocket
To them you're just microscopic
They wanna take your freedom and lock it up

If we could turn back time, I think maybe we'd know
It isn't just another sign of the times, I think it's time we read the signs
They're telling us to turn around, look back, face facts
These are our tracks
If you didn't do it then you let it happen
No you can't pass the blame when good things fade
When things don't go your way
If freedom is all that we have
Then why we letting them take away that?


All you have to do to earn a living
Is live your life and be forgiving
'Cos life is the highest of all gifts, let's realise this
And prioritise or face our demise
There's no other prize higher than our lives
So step outside the rich man's wallet
You're living in their back pocket
To them you're just microscopic
They wanna take your freedom and lock it up

But they can't take my individuality
To me they're all the same kind of insanity
But there must be a tipping point where all our hearts collide
Or a miraculous disaster to turn the tides

about

Jamie Cooling Dunfermline, UK

Thanks for dropping by! I'm Jamie Cooling, just a musician trying to get by doing what I love. I live in Fife, Scotland but currently I am touring Europe, busking in as many cities as possible.

I write and record all my music on my own at home, though mainly I am a guitarist/singer. If you like my music please pass it on to someone else who will like it and keep the momentum going! Cheers :)
