"Highway Donkey" as written by and Fredrik Larzon Mathias Farm....
When I was younger, I did not know how to be
I lived my own lie and never asked the question why
I always talked and dressed like everyone 'round me
Where were my own views and my own thoughts?
I didn't have a clue

Insecurity, no confidence that was my style
I did some false things, you'd say I was playing the wrong strings
To realize and see how lost I was, it took a while
But it was worth it, 'cause now I'm much more confident and fit

I'm not going down the highway
'Cause I had the might to stop
And turn around before it was too late
Instead I'm slowly going my way
And if I don't reach the top
I still got lots right here, I appreciate

Just because I'm older now, does not mean I'm incomplete
Yeah, I still have got fear, it's not as string but it's still here
And I'm confused at times, but now I know where to put my feet
Right in my own trail, that's the only place if I don't want to fail

    General CommentThis song's about someone who was very insecure about themselves for a long time, and therefore was a "follower". Now that this person has grown, he's realizing that it's much better to lead than follow. He was able to turn his life around before it was too late. To me this is Millencolin's best.

    General CommentGreat song! Most people can relate - at some point, we were all just going with the flow, trying to fit in, but then somewhere along the line you acquire the confidence to be yourself.

    General CommentThis is everyone who's gone to public school! We all just wanted to fit in, wear the trendy shit. I think that once he/us realized being ourselves is way more important than what they (kids/corporations) tell us, he is way better off. And we can be unique from the squares that long to fit in and never think for themselves. We're much more confident and fit!

    General CommentGreat song.
    What I love most about it is how the chorus get's expanded every time. First it's naked, then they're singing "I'm not go---ing ..." and the last time "I'n not going, I'm not going, I'm not going, OI OI OI!" great.

    General CommentIve been listenin to this this album for years and just today I listened to the lyrics and thought wow this is me. Me n this girl friend I have along with my mates have been talking about how we hate people that follow trends, we get picked on as the minority but we dont care coz we know were indivduals.

    Great song
