As I look back now it's exactly how you said
But it made no difference to the life that I led
The route that I took may mean that I learnt hard
But you only get one chance to make things play the way you're dreamin' of
I didn't know then but then what the fuck is life for
I still regret it, but now I strong than before
And this strength will open up new doors
See things I never saw before

I never claim I'm the blessed
I have faith in myself and belief in this message
No I never claim I'm the blessed
I have belief in my strengths and respect for my weakness
Cos he who can learn to respect and seek to understand
Can overcome or learn to play another hand
Yes he who can learn to respect and seek to understand
Can look back and say
Now I'm stronger than before
My strength will open up new doors
See things I never saw before

I stand now focused again
It takes time to reach a peace within
I stand now focused again
It takes time to reach your peace within
You see to try but you never ask the question why
Too concerned with your need for an alibi
It's only try cos you never find your reason why
Too concerned with your alibi

    General Commentit's a song about becoming an atheist, being in the side of no religion, and knowing that this is the best way, the right way, and that way will be the one that will save ya

    General CommentI don't know if it's atheism-related, the whole idea of peace within and focus sounds more like Taoism to me... but it's a great song, and a definite anthem. Gives you heart... it's good to hear someone who believes in themselves without being ignorant.

    General Commentis this not just about being 'headstrong', how you need to know yourself to become greater, stronger, a a long path of learning. knowing your strong but respecting your own weaknesses. great song.
