lyrics

Our home is withering as humans thrive
Slaving your way through unnatural lives
The troubles we have are all we perceive
Stemmed from lies and things we don't need

Our idea of sustenance is synthesised chemicals
Diluting our nutrients through engineered vegetables
Trying to find ourselves among a mountain of possessions
But the only thing worthy is our own self expression

So let's run with the animals, free where we wanna roam
Live how we should be. Go right now
So let's grow with the trees with our lives like a breeze
Live how we should be. Go right now

This ain't how it's supposed to be
This ain't how they used to be
Surely it can't be just me
'Cos I don't know much but I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Let's make it how it's supposed to be
Living as one big family
How can we ever be happy?
If we can never ever be free

When unnatural causes are taking our lives
It's time to look backwards so the future survives
Cos science and progress will never stop pushing
The rise of technology will never stop looking-
for ways to betray us and take who we are
Trade our lifestyles to raise the bar
But the bar keeps slipping and these people must be tripping
if they think that this is living
Dreams don't happen just from wishing

So let's run with the animals, free where we wanna roam
Live how we should be. Go right now
So let's grow with the trees with our lives like a breeze
Live how we should be. Go right now

This ain't how it's supposed to be
This ain't how they used to be
Surely it can't be just me
'Cos I don't know much but I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Let's make it how it's supposed to be
Living as one big family
How can we ever be happy?
If we can never ever be free

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 :)
