"The Individualist" as written by and Todd Rundgren....
Gather 'round children, I got a tale to tell ya



There was a time when I couldn't bust a rhyme
Had yet to hit my prime
'Cause my mind was such a young mind
And first you got to unwind
The mystery of your soul, it's like a black hole
The gravity is too thick
You got to learn to lighten up a bit
It's such a frightening thing to realize
Every time you close your eyes

You been cut down to size

'Cause you're stuck with yourself

Ain't nobody else to compare yourself to

It's just you

And then you ask yourself, "What's it all about?"

So you try to figure it out

And that's when you'll be tempted to believe foolish things

And deceive yourself by lettin' someone else

Do your thinkin' for you

When they haven't got a clue

But you can't relive the hype, don't ya see?

'Cause I got a special answer meant just for me

Somewhere in my immediate vicinity



And if there's time enough to get it

Then in time I'm gonna get it

'Cause I am the Individualist



Check my references
Wherever you are now you know I been there, done that
Don't need to sling the scat 'cause my resume' is too fat
Change my name to some funky fresh dingbat
Like "the artist formerly known as TR-i"
I got to laugh when they try to figure out what it's all about
And they doubt that I'm so devout
But it's something I can do without
I got to know why I wanna know what I wanna know

Why do I go where the others won't go?

My eye is on the prize that's in disguise

That you can only theorize, but I can utilize

To rise above the lies about reality

'Cause you can't relive the hype don't ya see?
'Cause I got a special answer meant just for me
Somewhere in my immediate vicinity


And if there's time enough to find it
Then in time I'm gonna find it
'Cause I am the Individualist

Here comes the Individualist
Yes I am, the Individualist
