"Myself" as written by Jarrod Douglas Montague, Michael Frederick De Wolf, Philip M. Lipscomb and Stephen Steele Richards....
If life was a game
Could I win in the end?
And if I was sane
Would I fuck it up all over again?
These questions and answers
Can help me redefine myself
And I thank your open ears for all their help

No
More
Shame
Is what I see for myself
I need to change for my health
I need a better way of life for myself

If I stay the same
How long will I last?
Yet if I change
Will I still just be alone and typecast?
Professional answers
Can't help me to design myself
So I thank your open arms for all their help

No
More
Shame
Is what I see for myself
I need to change for my health
I need a better way of life for myself

Caressing gateways of the mind
(over matter through space as time)
Heals wounds inspiring gifts of light
(inside myself just need some time)
Just need some time to myself
To figure it out
Cause I've got no doubt
Then when my dreams come true
It's because of you
And the fact that I let you
(and I thank you)

No

No
More
Shame
Is what I see for myself
I need to change for my health
I need a better way of life for myself

Caressing gateways of our minds
(over matter through space as time)
Heals wounds inspiring gifts of light
(inside ourselves just need)
Time

    General CommentI think they went through a big change. I mean, they're obviously still Taproot but I think that this song is so awesome and better than most of their older stuff.

    General Commentalright. after listening to the stuiod recording of poem to self, the live vesrion, and pre-studio, and now myself, i have to say that i am utterly in awe at the metamoprhis taproot has gone under... they were awesome.. but now they're just... wow.. mind-blowing.

    this song, like most others by taproot, really hit home espically regarding the "These questions and answers can help me redefine myself" and the "Professional answers cant help me to design myself" lines. i'm sure we're all a little f'ed up in the head... and personal experience has taught me that the only way to find the answers is to ask yourself the questions. not somebody with a note-pad & a predefined idea of whats "heatlhy" and not.

    oh, and did anybody else have the problem with again & again poppin up in the middle of the mp3 thats floating around off the demo cd?

    General CommentI think Again and Again popping up in the song, was a bit of a joke for the sampler.

    General CommentI think it's about a person recovering from a hard time in their life, and then coming to realize that now that they are better the world expects them to change if they want to fit in it. "These questions and answers can help me redefine myself " "It's what I see for myself, I need to change for my health, I need a better way to blindfold myself." "If I stay the same, how long will I last? Yet if I change will I still just be alone & (?) cast?" (i think he's saying "typecast") "Professional answers cant help me to design myself"

    General Commenthe says "will i still just be alone and TYPECAST"....its a term used in theater when a person repeatedly gets the same type of part....and i think he says "over matter, through spaces time"......but anywho, this song kicks ass. its so gorgeous yet i feel like its kicking my ass :) taproot are masters of the art
