My life's a mystery
I just can't figure it out
It's strange to me
That the visions I see
Seduce me but for now
I try to focus
But I can only do a little at one time
Everyone keeps telling me
Everything's gonna be alright
Just sit right down
And we'll tell you lies
I'm at a junction
But I just don't know which path
I'm pround of all the work I've done
But it never seems to last
It's not for money it's for love
And it just might break my back
Sometimes it feels as though
Something might go my way
I'll never give it up
Too many things I've yet to say
I've done it by myself
And I can do it all again

    General CommentThis song sums up the entire DIY attitude that has made the true punk scene a memorable part of our history.
    I'm at a junction
    But I just don't know which path
    I'm pround of all the work I've done
    But it never seems to last
    It's not for money it's for love
    And it just might break my back
    Sometimes it feels as though
    Something might go my way
    I'll never give it up
    Too many things I've yet to say
    I've done it by myself
    And I can do it all again

    simply put...and beautiful.
