    About :

    I wrote this song the day after watching "Searching For Sugar Man" a film about a songwriter who failed to gain a following in his home country (the USA) but unbeknownst to him, inspired an entire generation in South Africa.

    One of my take-aways from the film, is that it is easy to forget to make time to sit and reflect. To enjoy what you have, and not to worry about what you don't have.

    It's a powerful and moving film that I would encourage any artist or songwriter to watch.

    Lyrics


    This emblem I’ve been wearing has got people staring
    I hope they can’t see through my charade
    Because it’s a pretty price I pay for living different lives both night and day
    I aint sure it’s gonna work out right

    And these thoughts I’ve been collecting just haven’t been connecting
    I get on and off and off and on the line
    And I’ve been listening to the prophet but I’m sure I still don’t got it
    I’ve got the answers but I just can’t find the time

    So take these lyrics I’ve been scratching into eggs that won’t be hatching
    And slam them in the faces of the youth
    With all their instant gratification and their shameless masturbation
    They’ll never understand the beauty of solitude

    And all I really want is some silence from all the anger hate and violence
    But I’m as much to blame as everyone else
    And for all I’ve come to see and understand what burdens me
    I’ve done nothing but simply get this off my chest

    Will I fight, will I fight for you?
    Will I fight, will I fight for you?
    Will I fight, will I fight for you?
    Will I fight or will I find something new.

    This emblem I’ve been wearing has got people staring.
    I hope they can’t see through my charade.
