about

This song was written whilst Kimberley Newell was TRYING to explore meditation. Kimberley was distracted with Ants in her pants and was inspired to write these words. She talks of envying the trust people have with there religion/faith and how she only trusts herself to make each day as good or better than the last.

lyrics

(Chorus.)
I envy the faith
The trust in the sky
The place people think they go
When they die

Breathing in and out
I'm sitting here wanting to shout
I understand being still and quiet
Is more pleasure than a raging riot but never will I give away
The passion or lips made to say
No to what's wrong
Ouch to who hurts
From my belly let out angry blurts
I don't need to swear
Or sleep with whom I please
But if I'm safe and sensible why not fulfil my needs
Beauty passion friends and trust
That's not the outcome
To do this not that you must
I'll listen to my own instinct
It's myself that I'll trust

(Chorus)

Breathing in and out
I'm sitting here wanting to shout
You live once
You live once so enjoy it
Life isn't simple
I quite like it
It's complicated
I can nearly taste
Work hard
I watch others waste it
It's a puzzle
we're human we can take it
Go out and get life
It's out there and waiting
Stop preying it's frustrating
Be your god
make your own life amazing
Having believe isn't what I'm hating but nothing up there is communicating
Some people find comforts in words
Find meanings from stories
of fruit and birds
Have faith all will be revealed one day
if they sacrifice hours to sit there and prey

(Chorus)

Breathing in and out
I'm sitting here wanting to scream
This world isn't what it seems
This is it we are the angels
We put the smiles
on every boy and girl
We cause the pain
We are the devil
And I will keep stepping away from hell
I envy the believe that one day you'll
Live up there with the angels
I envy the believe of happy ever after
When my future looks much darker
But whilst I'm here
I won't be waiting
I won't apologise for my mistakes
And I won't spend my life Living by
The rules made up
By some other guy.
