New Song

“I’ve been waiting for so long
To come here now and sing this song…”

This morning my buddy @mikeypod shared this video on Facebook.

It took me back, watching the video, and for some reason it made the lyrics stand out once again for me, the way they did in 1983.

“This is a song to all my friends
They take the challenge to their hearts
Challenging preconceived ideas
Saying goodbye to long standing fears

Don’t crack up
Bend your brain
See both sides
Throw off your mental chains

I don’t wanna be hip and cool
I don’t wanna play by the rules
Not under the thumb of the cynical few
Or laden down by the doom crew”

I’ve lived my life in large measure by those words and refuse to be laden down by the doom crew or the cynical few, and I will never give in to fear.

My New Song is beginning, all over again…

    Wow! Throw off your mental chains… what's the dude in the physical chains all about in this song? It's awesome, to borrow a popular Eighties expression! Great meeting you earlier this week! Good luck with the internship.
