Rick Imamoto - 3 October 2001

 

everyone has infinite ideas... about what is true
nobody is obligated... to agree with you
everyone has got... their own point of view
it usually depends... on what they've been through

everyone has got... their own sordid past
and their own happy memories... of times that couldn't last
so many stones... that should not have been cast
sinking in a storm... lost without a mast

nature planned it inherently
we all see things differently

each has their own... personal version of reality
each brings to the table... a unique possibility
everyone possesses... some unique quality
any kind of shortcoming... is balanced in duality

everyone has their own... particular circumstance
everyone must take... some sort of chance
some spend their life... in some sort of trance
some live their life... as if it were a dance

nature planned it inherently
we all see things differently

everyone must take responsibility... for the things that they choose
the times that we win... the times that we lose
we can't solve the mysteries... without any clues
no one gets through life... without paying their dues

everyone is travelling... on their own unique journey
their own path to follow... a personal method of learning
forget about the bridges... you're thinking of burning
try harder to believe... the tide will be turning

nature planned it inherently
we all see things differently

things could be better... things could be worse
a balance is found... seeing things in reverse
