I'm not a guru, I'm a leader
Stepping out of the abyss into the light as a believer
Because I've read the books and I've got the aim
And I've got the vision to defeat the game
A modern age messiah to crucify and blame
But it's not about the money
And it's not about the fame
It's just freedom, love, compassion, a place void of the shame
No more cynical voices, pitiful choices, minimal wage, subliminal poison,
just back to mother nature back to colorful noise.
What do I want? I just want a piece of your mind.
What do I want? I just want a piece of your life.
What do I want? I just want a piece of your heart.
I dream of loyal disciples, making love and art tonight.

Don't follow a leader
If it's not your heart
Don't trip over toxins
Falling, finding fading.

So now it's night time, I know I'm loosing it
No booze for me, because I know I'm addicted
My heart keeps racing, thoughts keep tracing,
Pop another pill until the pain starts fading
Pop another pill to keep my system from breaking.

This may get a 1,8 on Pitchfork,
But believe me kid, this dork,
Will be paying his bills in 3,8 years with this shit
Work will always pay off,
Look, I'm not trying to sound tough,
But this life will always suck you out
And force you to be tough

And I'm so tired of feeling wired, so I drink to feel admired,
The problem is I know I can't until the habit is retired,
I'm so stressed because I'm living wrong
This lifestyle kills as you move along
Because when you love to create but you live to destruct
It's just a matter of time until your mind state is fucked for good.

One more shot, to make the heartache fade
Two more shots, until the madness wakes
Three more shots, until the daylight wakes
Four more shots, to blow the fucking light's out.

Don't follow a leader
If it's not your heart
Don't trip over toxins
Falling, finding fading
