"Conquering Fools (Any Time Now)" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge Richard On....
Set out on the voyage of the conquering fools
Looking for the gold and the modern day jewels
It come to pass what was stuck in my head
If I didn't quit on looking then I'm probably dead

I hit the road and I rolled up north
looking for the origin, the place of my birth
I didn't notice when I ran a red sign
Hoping that everything would really be fine

Uh huh huh
People come and people go
But they never know what is going on
So they gotta try to be what they want to be

What the hell is happening to me
I hit the road and I rolled up north
Looking for the origin, the place of my birth
I didn't notice when I ran a red sign

Hoping that everything would really be fine
I set out about an hour ago
Looking for some gold, said hey oh
Then I went down looking for the big

The big brass show
So I went and then he started to go
Walking down the same old, same old road
Thinking to myself, this is quite a struggle

What can I gotta do tomorrow
Gonna find that gold
And conquer me some fools
Hey hey, hey oh

Conquering fools
Conquering fools
Conquer some fools
Hey we're conquering fools

    General Commenti love this song too. well i love anythign these guys put out really. but this one i feel is about somebody going out searching for something. they dont even know themselves. and we all face things that we have to pass on our journey. things to conquor. alchohol, drugs, relationships--heh, education.

    General Commenti agree with ya beautifulcow. He's trying to find himself beyond the drugs and alcohol and everything else that we feel represents ourselves when really it's not. Great great song, awesome live!

    General CommentThis is my favorite OAR song. I love it until the end part on this version, it's awesome live but i dont like how they added the last part. I like the message more on Risen. I think this is basically about a dude setting out on a voyage to find himself but he keeps looking in the wrong places (finding gold and jewels) and it makes it worse. Eventually he realizes who he really is and conquers the fools. I love the one verse about people coming and going, its so great cause he says how people dont know whats going on and shit but then again he follows it up by say 'well what the hell its happened to me.' just a great way of looking at both sides before you judge people. i love the way this dude thinks.

    General CommentThis is a great song, and it really picks me up and gives me hope when all seems lost. I agree with
    most everyones idea about the song. I feel its about conquering all the foolish, childish things of our
    youth and finding yourself as an adult through the test of time against all these "fools". I really like the feeling of the song and the message it sends to all those who hear it.
