It started off one day
When you decided to be gay
You packed your bag and left the town
Headed for the bay ...
Where all the people flock
They work around the clock
Selling posters and candy in the park

Then you decided to be rich
And found a story you could pitch
To a room full of grumpy old men
And some ladies dressed in pink ...
When everybody smiled
You knew its time to run and hide
‘Cause its just another silly pie in the sky

So get your story straight
On what you is and what you ain’t
Before it gets too late
Your time is up, don’t hesitate

You future hasn’t happened yet
So stop the searching and create
Make some love and meditate
Roll your own dice, make a bet

‘Cause life is like a big roulette
You never know what you can get
If you keep copying others
Your future’s already set ...
So how to tell what’s right and wrong?
What’s your style and what’s your song?
Where’s your home, where you belong?

So get your story straight
On what you is and what you ain’t
Before it gets too late
Your time is up, don’t hesitate

You future hasn’t happened yet
So stop the searching and create
Make some love and meditate
Roll your own dice, make a bet
