Dont know what to call it...but here it is

Recommended Posts

Here is my newest work...it's all about how the media shapes peoples minds...

All these people tell me?

They tell me I can?t play sports, I?m too small

They tell me I can?t go to university because I?m not smart enough

They tell me I can?t get a girlfriend because I?m not good looking enough

{Chorus}

(((REPEAT)))

I can do anything I want to do!

I need to stick to my dreams

I need to stick to my Goals

I need to stick to my passion!

[Verse 2]

I can?t do things because the media plays up a certain guideline?

You have to be Brad Pitt to get a Girlfriend,

You have to be Allan Iverson to be a sports star,

You have to be Einstein to go to college?

All of these people are great?

As long as you have the heart, the drive, and the passion to do something

You can be Einstein, Iverson, and Pitt?you can be a Rocket Scientist

{Chorus}

(((REPEAT)))

I can do anything I want to do!

I need to stick to my dreams

I need to stick to my Goals

I need to stick to my passion!

[Verse 3]

I?m 5?6 and I want to be a Basketball Star?

I get laughed at everyday of my life because of my dream?

People don?t realize that all I want is support in my dream!

Instead I get ridicule?I get no respect?I get run down!

So instead of persevering I turn to drugs?I O.D?ed before my 13 birthday!

{Chorus}

(((REPEAT)))

I can do anything I want to do!

I need to stick to my dreams

I need to stick to my Goals

I need to stick to my passion!

[Verse 4]

I?m an obese teen?

I have a girlfriend, she?s the head cheerleader?

Everyone can?t believe she?s my Girlfreind?

So they try and take her on me?

One night the Captain and the Quarterback of the team took her out for the night?

She?s never returned, I lie in bed at night wondering?where she is? Is she alright?

{Spoken Interlude}

both of these cases held pivotal meanings in ones life?all they wanted was respect, support, love?but we ran them down?and made them feel bad?now the next Micheal Jordan is gone?and the next super model is missing?all because we give into media and there pressures! If the Basketball player looked like Allan Iverson?he?d still be here?if the obese teen looked like Brad Pitt?his life would still be here!

{Chorus}

(((REPEAT)))

I can do anything I want to do!

I need to stick to my dreams

I need to stick to my Goals

I need to stick to my passion!

very nice man, and at the same time sobering and shocking

I particullarly like the fact that a lot of it doesnt rhyme

it kinda reminds me of Mmm Mmm Mmm by the crash test dummies, can anyone else see where im coing from on that point?

Very cool, Marko. I like how you're very passionate with what you feel. I think oftentimes rhyme can be a good structural thing and not take anything away from the message but its also interesting to just let words flow naturally. :thumbsup:

Yeah, that song is also great, I love how your songs Mark have that overall theme as well as an expressed well thought out meaning. That's what music should be about.
