(Guitar 2 rythm)
         Yeah                    {whisper}  say it 

Inclination of direction, walk the turn and twisted rift
With the children of creation, furturistic dreams we sift.
Clutching violently we whisper with a liquifying cry
And the deadly final answers we are surely doomed to die.

{Guitar 2 Rythm 2x}

Won't you help me Mr. Jesus?  Won't you tell me if you can,
When you see this world we live in, do you still believe in man?
If my songs become my freedom, and my freedom turns to gold,
Then I'll ask the final question, is the answer bought and sold?

{Guitar 2 rythm 2x}

Keyboard, but a filler for Guitar 1.  Helps round out the rythm!

{Lyrics with the rythm above}

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it,
'Cause I've got no reason to lie, yeah.
Forget your problems that don't even exist
And I'll show you a way to get high.

Oh yeah   Oh yeah  Oh yeah  Oh yeah

So come alive you know you matter to me
Remember freedom is not hard to find, yeah
Time to stop all your messin' around
Don't you think I know own mind?

Why can't you believe, it's right here to be seen?
Do you always have to be told, yeah
For you have been taught, that if your mind has been bought
Life's entire answer was sold.
